Looked at mine, stared for a minute or two, went to the bar. Have all the goodies for a master disconnect but I'll get there sometime. Realized a few things. After hail threats and zero sleep last night I need to lower the insurance deductible. Luckily the hail missed us. But I did get the electrician to install the outlet on the side of the house so we can plug it in and add 2 bedrooms!

What did you do to your camper today?

I never noticed this counter before.....on the dash (Georgetown 270). Is it for generator hours?

Yes.....and from the looks of the numbers you have not been exercising it unless you just purchased it.....it's the coaches heart when you have no hook ups. Give it a test run with everything on at the same time.

We got take-out and had lunch in the RV lot in Rocky. Then, I cut out and removed the water filter and connected the hoses with flexible hosing and clamps. (I will have to keep an eye on it as the existing hoses are the hard-plastic kind...but I clamped it as tight as I dared to and the connectors are copper so that should work.) Not very much room to work in there, that's for sure!

Then I put two new rubber gaskets in the drain hoses (and found the one I had lost on the ground but I like the ones I bought better, anyway...and I now have spares...they are not the typical size so glad to have found a box of them at the store.)

My gray valve doesn't shut all the way so I need to order one and replace it...the dealer said he'd do it free for me but he's pretty busy and I don't like leaving it for so long as I have things I need to get done. (Greasing my axles, getting the remaining two tire air valves replaced, etc.)

X2. We learned the hard way when we had our first MH. Had to bring it into an Onan service center for carburetor repair. Incidentally, because it was in a MH (which we brought to them) it cost an additional $100 beyond the shop charge. Exercise that puppy every month.

Lowes and Home a depot sell shark bite pec connections. A little pricey but will help hold this together. You would not need to watch it as much.

Thanks for the advice! We haven't had the coach long at all, but I'll give it some run time this weekend when I'm tinkering with some things.

Thank you again!

Had my new Good Year Marathons installed today. Woo-Hoo!! Also had my bearing repacked and in doing so found that the brake springs on the right rear wheel had broken and got those replaced too.

[QUOTE=wicked1;836675]Well after realizing the awning hits the top of the kitchen slide I was in search of a black pool Noodle. So remember I did this to some plumbing I got pipe wraps which are tiny pool noodles with a slit in them already. Now if the awning flaps I don't have to worry about a tear

Thanks for the suggestion. I did the same to mine today.

Put clamps on the bottom of my bunk beds for my fishing poles so they are up and out of the way and not getting all tangled up anymore and can get them better from the outside access door. And put on a set of awning brackets from oldcoot. They look awesome.
