You need two ladders one foot difference?

Easy to burn through in a couple of nights with the furnace, I did that in two nights with a 30lb bottle, these little 20's go quicker

I always carry some paracord to lash mine together when I need a little more reach.

Put in a valve for the freshwater drain. Still don't understand why the factory doesn't do this.

Finally took delivery of our new 2015 Surveyor 32rlts. Spend Saturday changing all the storage door locks to match the entry door, (I hate multiple keys) installed screen door pull bar, started moving in all the outside storage bins. Spend all day Sunday cleaning the inside from top to bottom with the little misses and moving all the inside stuff in. Heading out Friday afternoon to Illini State Park in Marseilles Illinois for a shake down weekend before bringing it up to Wisconsin for the summer.

Add some PL Premium prior to screwing. The glue will hold it. I did that in my Rockwood tto fix a TV mount that broke loose driving home from the dealer.

I've seen some places only half fill them and charge for a full fill.
Also, some of these newer tanks with the OPD (overfill protection device) can be finicky to get filled.

I assume that it was, had it filled before the trip and had no reason to doubt it wasnt full.

Daytime was in the 70's this trip and night in the 40's. I had the thermostat set to 64 or 65, cant remember which. The trip before (when I had the tank filled) was during new years so it ran more then.


Maybe I did just use it up and didn't realize we could go through it that fast. I guess I need to refill it and camp again to test it out

Finally get to go camping this weekend. Yahoo! Last weekend installed More/Ryde HD shackle kit with 1/2 " thick shackles instead of the original 1/4" ones. Also bronze bushings and wet bolts. Had one 1/4" shackle end break out 5 years ago. Replaced them all with 1/4" ones and looking at them last weekend some were elongated almost half way out and of course the plastic bushings were mostly shot. Hopefully these will last much longer. I found out about these from this forum of course! Also installed 1/4 turn valves on the low point water drains and installed a grab bar on the screen door. Last night I drained the rv anti freeze and flushed all lines. Tonight I will refill water tank and add bleach and run thru the lines and redrain and flush out tomorrow night. Yesterday I ordered furnace screens, new 2 inch gray waste gate valve, new camco acculevel for the front-the old one the ball is looking scummy? and 2 new water filters. Man I love this time of the year.
Almost forgot-ordered and received 2 stick on under cabinet/closet lights with motion detectors to put where needed. One more thing I can't wait to try out and it will be a surprise for my DW. I got a GlowBowl motion activated toilet night light and battery charger for all these batteries. I found it on Amazon when I was looking for the other lights. I'd attach a link for it but I don't know how-too old I guess. Just google GlowBowl and you'll find it.
I think that's it for now. I can't wait for this Friday night after my DW has had a few "beverages" and sees the new toilet light. I'm sure we'll here her laughing from outside.:signhavefun :

Yes more testing. And not just one. Even as the weather gets warmer , more testing. Test all summer long as a control test. And when it starts to get cold, more testing.

And so you can compare testing results with others, you join testing forums and talk about it. And then that probably doesn't quench the testing thirst of many, you need to meet up in person at testing rallies and have personal verbal testing discussions.
