What is the purpose of the dump station holder?

Makes it easier to carry your own dump tank! Good idea!

Aaah. Thanks, the word station had me confused. So a blue tote.

What did you do to your camper today?

I vacuumed up the popcorn mess from adding the second a/c.
Oh and the wood shavings.
Pictures don't do justice to the amount I vacuumed up!

Pic 1 is the finished product on the vinyl problem in the kitchen. Pic 2 is the finished entertainment system. Pic 3 is the cabinet I deepened by 6 inches and added a shelf with a lip. Pic 4 is the new back in that cabinet.

In doing the renovation I noticed many other wasted spaces that could easily be utilized if the engineers actually had a plan.

I changed the carb on my ONAN 5500 gen. It helped a little, but did not solve the problem. The next step I guess is to take it to the generator man, to find out what the problem is.

After it cured I trimmed away the excess, added Dicor and installed the vent covers.

I hope this clarifies the work I did?
Sort of ... I'm not exactly sure where the vent pipe runs. I'm guessing it's in the corner cabinet in the bathroom ? I'll take a look next time I'm at the storage lot.
If so then I guess to seal the bottom you do it from inside the camper ?
Also sounds like there's an outer sheath around the pipe ? (is this what the vent cover you refer to is ? or do you just mean the cap ?)

I'll take a look maybe this weekend, if I get time to head over there.

Thanks for trying to clarify

I've been dewinterizing our rv. Drained and sanitized tank and lines. Darn ice maker still making pink ice. Oh well, guess I'll buy a bag. Going to Montgomery Bell State Park this weekend for a shake down.

Mine comes up in the wall next to the head.

I sealed it from the roof. I had the vent cover completely removed exposing the black pipe going through the roof. From that vantage point I was able to use the tube nozzle on the expansion foam to fill the opening around the pipe at the bottom of the ceiling duct and once cured was able to fill the gap at the roof level. I then replaced the vent cover and sealed it around the edges with Dicor.

Doing it that way stopped the A/C flow out the roof and down the wall to the top of the waste tanks.

I also used the foam to fill the "blunt" areas around the A/C unit and after curing used a knife cutting open a new channel to the ceiling ducts a more streamline design to encourage better air flow.

Both of those "repairs" increased my air flow by almost double, at least.

Haven't done it yet, so perhaps I can't post it...?

Planning to offload the DP and Load up the Sandpiper this afternoon and tomorrow. Been brainstorming how I want to load my tools and stuff in the basement, but still not sure!

We have our first outing next weekend to a local park. Staying Friday- Monday. My sons baseball team kicks off the AAU season just a mile or so away, so it seemed like a good trip. Will probably spend the evenings organizing the tools and such.

In other news.... Getting paid for the DP today and it is leaving tomorrow!

I follow you now.

My fear is that we just throw the stuff in there to get to the campground, and we live with it from then on out! I can be a little lazy like that!

Picked up my trailer from storage; and ordered a new toilet.

Tomorrow's job will be to replace the Dometic 300 toilet with a 310; and clean/partially de-winterize...

Starting to see a few people replace their toilets? Do they go bad that quickly? It seems this is the second 300 to 310 install I read about?
