If you want to replace your 571 locks the website is WWW
.rvlocksandmore.com . If You have a global door lock, you can order them keyed the same way. Came with the cam and a key. Price was 4.25 each plus shipping. Ordered my replacements a couple days ago

Loaded it up and rinsing the green pollen off for our Weekend Trip to Timothy Lake S in East Stroudsburg PA. I am glad we have good weather this weekend

Replaced the water valve on the toilet. Easier than I expected, except the old clamp was a bug to get off. Next year, will make sure to flush toilet after disconnecting water to make sure there isn't any water in the line.

Yeah I had a little bit in the shower but it froze and rose out of the shower handle on my old trailer, even with pushing AF in there was a little and in Nj we had a cold wondered but no damage.

Installed the brackets for the awning poles and installed the Tornado black water flusher - time to rest with a rum and stay out of the heat for a while

We will see hope it works as good as all the reviewers say only saw a few negative ones and they seemed more like the person didn't set it up right. What I was looking for was less equipment and lighter weight.

You will get that. I was able to connect and disconnect mine today with one arm in a sling.

I hope you used the Make an Offer option on eBay. I paid $410 for my Andersen.

I installed a battery cut out switch and got the TT ready for the season last weekend. We were hoping to go out this weekend. Well winterized again. Woke up to -8C yesterday and it's snowing today. This is sure cutting into the season. Hopefully the fall is nice.

They came! I think I'll configure the TPMS sensors to the monitor and mark them.

And next I need metal valve stems for the truck.

I am JEALOUS of both of these

Brought our new motorhome to our house for the first time and cleaned it out. Signed the title over to someone on our hold Bantam B-17. Replaced the vent caps and checked the roof (all is well). Cleaned the inside and started adding dishes (that I pulled out of our old camper this morning).

Now I need a trip!

Can you expand on how it wasn't shutting off? I have a new Oxygenics shower head and I can't seem to push the shutoff button AT ALL. Is this what was happening to you?

What replacement shutoff did you get?

It's taken me a while, but man- that was one expensive Amazon order! And, I've swapped emails with TST, I'm going to buy their booster directly from them and get a single sensor for my spare since it is a hassle to get to.

We added JT Strongarms and X-chocks on the wheels. No more shaking in the fifth wheel, hard to believe how well the Strongarms worked.

When in the shut off position, there is a constant stream not quite as big as a straw, but to me, I didn't like it. I know it's to keep the water at a constant temperature, but I don't like wasting water even if hooked to city water which we are 99.9% of the time. The shut off I bought is:Shower Head Shut Off Valve Water Saver Solid Brass New Free Shipping | eBay
