Shortly after got my camper in 2012 I installed a kitchen sprayer right next to my toilet and use it to spray out the nasty after using it. It works wonders and I finally got my wife to agree it was worth putting the $10 pc in. She told me she thought it wasn't going to work and she wasn't going to use it, she didn't want to admit it but it was a great idea and she uses it more then i do.



Sorry pics are not straight, ill try to figure that out next time i post pics.

See if this helps, post #7. Also try to first edit your picture by cropping it some and saving it as a new picture. Then try attaching the newly saved picture in a post.

I have a Fantastic Fan in the bathroom, does anybody ever keep one turned on all of the time to suck air thru from another roof vent? With the residential fridge I need to make sure it doesn't overheat.
I have left it on by mistake for two weeks ( did not hurt a thing ), now I added a thermostat switch and it starts and shuts off when the temp is 80 degrees and then shuts off when it is below 80 degrees.

They do have fans with built in temp/speed controlled, plus auto shut for rain. Really work well. Have three fans like that. Also they reverse. One in one out!

Sorry for the late reply. Just got back from camping in SC and GA.

The table actually feels sturdier and you can get in and out of the booth without having to move your legs around the table legs.

Let me know if I can be of any further help.

Good luck,

Donald

They were 3 yr old Duro ST2100 235/85R16 F load (12 ply)

I had just entered the city off the highway.
No damage to the 5th wheel whatsoever! Fender and well untouched!

Lucky! I should have bought a lottery ticket right after! LOL

Took a cue from 05CrewDually (thanks to him for the idea and info) and installed a volt meter above my tank gauge display panel. Traced two points on the back of the circuit board that were not being used and soldered the wires from the meter.

When I press the button it gives me a true readout of the voltage, not just an idiot light.

Currently the power supply is providing 14+ volts to the battery and system.
