Finally installed the watts regulator I bought over Christmas. Found a gnarly kink in the feed hose right off the outer panel. Much better pressure and flow.

Putting in another drawer in the kitchen since there is the room for it and I want a 4th drawer in there. Pictures to follow later... DH didn't wake up in time enough yesterday to get it finished

Installed battery disconnect switch, installed wire screen on Refrig vents, WH vents, and done my furnace vents before covered up so I wasn't able to get a pic.of the furnace. All the exhaust vents taken care of, to keep those pesky flying insects out!

Took a bunch of stuff to Goodwill. Prepped a box of Christmas decorations to ship them back to my in-laws.

And setup appointments to get my gray tank looked at (and then hopefully fixed).

Be careful. Putting screening directly over existing vents reduces vent area by about half. That is why the screening from Dicor is domed.

Folks have been doing it for years and although it may be a problem I've never heard of any.

What is Dicor screening? Google brings up nothing.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Rotated tires, checked brakes and lubed all four e-z lube axles bearings. First time for lubrication so this took awhile and almost 3 tubes of grease.

In mine, all the water connections are under the bathroom sink. I mounted it on the bottom lip of the cabinet just inside and parallel to the door. I can get some pics when I get home tonight.

For what it's worth, mine is connected to city water inlet in the water bay (basement). I connect the hose directly to the regulator. I have a 90* fitting on the inlet side of the regulator which allows the hose to come straight up from the hole into the regulator.

It's not terribly pretty, but I didn't want to hang that much mass externally. I used a couple Romex hold downs using screws instead of the nails to make the zip tie straps.

you are right about that. I pulled each hub to check the brake shoes before I did the grease job and I was surprised at the lack of any grease on the bearings. Everybody needs to check their bearings within the first 90 days after they purchase their camper. I will be doing that if I ever buy another new camper. Good lesson learned.
