Installed an in-line voltmeter and placed a small table that we are going to put our shoes on when we come in the door. Tied the voltmeter into the aisle light. It is only on when the light is switched on.

Put new slide seals on one of our slide for some reason that slides seals were rotting and mildewed. Was amazed how easy it was to replace thought there would be more to it. Also took one of my outside storage compartment covers off and re-caulked it and after doing this I will be changing the existing screws to a machine screw and nut configuration, it was way too easy to get into the way it is.

I did similar myself. People walking in on others. I burst in on the middle child...he jerked left...I got to clean up...

I was taught at a very early age that a closed door required a knock and an answer before entering. Has worked for many years.

I serviced my water softener, flushed the HW Heater, filled FW Tank. Loaded tools, deciding whether i need the Pop Rivet gun and kit. Restrung the borken blind string, limited full open operation day/night works just fine. Looked at mounting the RF Range Extender in the Bedroom, highest point. Awnings dryer out, clean enough for rally time. Re drilled the dummy sewer plug and used stainless fasteners and speed nuts inside the bumper. pack extra things for the 3 1/2 week trip. DW started packing food and clothes.

Rain and poured Saturday Morning and again today, not sure if I need to wash the trailer or not?

Just returned home from a trip with grandkids, so a major cleaning and restock is in order before leaving for Nashville.

What did you do to your camper today?

Replaced a valve for my low point drain. The one there before had a drip from the moment I put it on. I finally had the RV repair guy fix it up (took it off, put some pipe dope on it, and put it back on), but given it's age- it developed a crack here in Atlanta.

Bought its replacement and installed it yesterday.

Looked to be over tightened initially. Shouldn't have to be much more than hand tightened.

They likely were. I tried the first time with teflon tape and just couldn't get it to wrap cleanly. I do recall using plyers/wrench to tighten it. They lasted 3 years like that, but had a regular drip.

I don't know what the RV repair guy used. I wasn't watching when he redid it.

Either way, the broken one is gone now and I have a new ball valve if the other shows issues. I also used the paste stuff instead of tape. It says it's able to be used for potable water. I'm happier with this stuff- my monkey fingers were able to work it easier.

Thinking about it, that's not fair to monkeys.

I put a zip tie on mine in case some road debris hit it or an inquisitive kid wanted to know what happened if he pulled the lever a different way.
