That flapper is a tough little devil to get out isn't it? I also have a brand new spare RVQ & stand in the garage as a spare. I like them.

Nothing to the 5er, just made a container for the TST TPMS 507 Flow Thru sensors, spare batteries and Allen wrenches when I take them off. Will make it easier to keep track of all the pcs or loose the whole mess.

Used 18x18 self adhesive indoor outdoor carpet squares cut in half(perfect for 2 steps) to put on camper steps to the tune of $1.49 each at Ollies. This sure beats $12 for each step at camping stores.

I also made a container got it at Food Lion it called a PLASTIC BAG. Boy I just can't keep up with you. Hope you made two one for me also, nice job..... Really I checked my charging system, Added some Distilled water and checked with my load meter all showed in Green good for going on 4 year old duel starting and deep cycle interstate group 27. Just love that meter Camaraderie brought to my attention and suggested from Harbor Freight. No more pulling them and taking them to Napa to do the same thing.

No more CH751 keys. Installed new locks on the outside storage doors, they now work with the main door lock key.

Yup, it replaced an Interstate deep cycle with a broken strap handle. This was also the only deep cycle Sears had with more than a 1 year replacement plan. The Platinum's have 3 years of free replacement.

I hope someone else would do the same for me if I were in a similar situation. Just playing it forward and we were just happy we were able to do it for Steve and Linda.

Washed the motorhome, tightened all the valve stem extensions and checked tire pressures, sanitized/flushed the fresh water system then opened up the hot/cold lines and closed off the bypass, fired up everything (furnace, a/c, generator, hot water heater, refrigerator) to make sure all systems were working, got up on the roof and checked all the dicor, and pointed it out the driveway so we are ready to roll.

Since I didn't do a water pressure test in the lot when I removed the in-line water filter, I brought Rocky home and found the clamps do NOT work well on those harder PVC pipes in the camper. Luckily, I was near the plumbing store in town last week and replaced what I had with compression fittings...worked like a champ. (and I found it easier to just crawl inside the compartment and lay on my back to work...not fun with two bulging disks in my back)
While I was working, the stupid CO sensor started going off and the red CO light would no go off so I had to cut the power lines and will return it to the dealer...obviously defective.) Click image for larger version
