Not much yet... still in discovery mode. I pulled down the belly cover to see why my black tank valve cable was loose at the valve end (cable shortened and adjusted under warranty several months ago). I found a bulge in my fresh water tank from its dropping down between cross-members. We never haul more than 10 gallons of water. Click image for larger version

Lubed up the bearing today using the EZ-Lube fitting. Went as well as one could expect.

Are not computer fans 120V? Saw where some one said they'd tied in to 12V...

How did you fix your tire? Was it just removing this? Or did you have to do something more?

Removed the tire from the rim and pulled the offending puncture object then patched the tire.

Boot or a plug would be my guess......he doesn't have a lot of time before he said he's leaving for the 'ville'. (Beat me)

Gave it a bath after a long camping trip. Stupid Apple maps took me down a road I shouldn't have been on. Tried to take me through an "Authorized Vehicles Only" drive into the park. Ended up on roads not meant for truck/trailer especially after all the rain we have had. Sides of the roads were washed out.

Only added about 30 minutes to the trip to drive all the way around Turkey Run St Park back to the main entrance when I could have just kept driving and been there earlier.
