This post isn't going to be worth reading(no pics...). But I went and,after somewhat emptying it, hooked up my fiver to take 80miles away for warranty work. It's been at a private church camps RV park for several months. 6" snow all around and on some roads, the rest had 10" of mud. Glad I had 4wd as I'd never had gotten to the hwy 😤. Hope the service shop likes mud cause it's covered and they gotta drop the underbelly😁👍. Hope to have it back in March.

Has it been raining or you think maybe coming from air conditioner condensate?

I should have said that- it was raining and is definitely coming from outside.

Looks like I've got a 6-8" crack in my skylight at the edge, undead sealant that gave way. He globbed on Dicor to get me to somewhere to have it replaced. We head to LazyDays in Tampa for 2 weeks for a rally. Hopefully they can do it. If not, I'll have another mobile tech take care of it.

I got it from a vender at the Quartzite show. $89 including tax. Said it was $10 off.
Installed it today. Not much trouble, except fishing the wire in the wall. Also had to get an elbow to get it to fit the space for the pump. Sorry no pictures.

Heh, a little of both!

But, it's the sun behind the tech. Heck of a nice guy, so I'll call him today's angel.

We get there on Sunday and then stay in the 16th. After that, we bounce around the Orlando-ish area for 6-7 weeks.

I'm not sure I'm crazy about doing the work myself. I seriously hate being on the roof!

That said, bob will want someone to take the electric stabilizer to him.

You might PM OC he is staying in Orlando, Maybe he has room to take it for Bob, I know Bob will be going to OC'S after the Mayberry Rally. I won't be in Tampa until March 1st. I'm down by Key Largo now until March... Glad you got your skylight fixed, I'm not crazy about roofs myself.....

Got a break from the rain

After seeing all the dual battery postings here, I finally got a break from the rain so I took a closer look at my batteries and sure enough they are connected wrong and they used a wire gauge way to small to parallel them. Luckily because of my old job I have a bunch of "junk", (as my wife calls it), in the garage. Found some #2 welding cable, crimp connectors and fixed that problem. Also noticed the wires coming from the batteries to the trailer could use some protection and I had some split flex tubing in my junk pile so I fixed that too.

I forgot to take a before of the Batteries. The wires from the trailer went to one battery and the parallel jumper was just #12 gauge wire.
