With all the lights I have, if I select blue, they only shine in my area

I had to trace down a dewinterizing leak. I found that I had not used enough Teflon tape on the anode rod and it was dripping down and seeping inside the camper where the water heater mates to the body. I resealed it thouroughly and the leak stopped.

There are options..

Put your pillow over your face.... DW might appreciate that..

Hide under the blanket....

Wear a blindfold.....

Unplug your neighbors outside lights after they retire (could be dangerous to your health depending on the neighbors)

Close your eyelids and count sheep....

Once I'm asleep, the world could end and I wouldn't hear it! Its how bright it is after midnight that I don't think is necessary. You can't even see the stars it so bright!

I strapped mine to the ceiling of the storage compartment. It was convenient.
Seadog is absolutely correct, it can be anywhere and in any orientation that allows the pipe (not the tank as it will be full of air) to drain.

This photo was before I put the shutoff valve in the pipe for winterizing.

I got mine from Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/WaterWorker-H.../dp/B001AZL562

Shurflo makes this other style chrome accumulator, but it might work better in your installation area. https://www.altestore.com/store/sola...PaAaAtL28P8HAQ

Well not exactly work on the camper but it's getting ready to bring it home on tuesday. Had to cut down a pair of ceader trees to fit it into its parking spot. Plus it will help the apple tree as we shouldn't have any more issues with ceader rust on it

Replaced the AC gasket due to loose AC bolts and water seepage.

Washed my truck and in the process cleaned the backup camera on the truck. When I drove it, the picture change was startling, I guess I didn't notice how bad the picture had become. Then I thought about the Furrion on the TT and cleaned it, wow, what a difference... I am going to wipe it down before every move from now on.

It's not so much what I did with the camper, its what the camper did for me this weekend. I set about on the heavy task of replacing ball joints in my Excursion. The Exy parks right next to the camper, so I popped it open and used the stereo for some entertainment. Then, as the day wore on and the sun rose high, I deployed the dining room awning to shield me from the sun. It worked very well.


Mechanic price to change ball joints $950. Cost of the parts, about $300. $650 bucks saved by doing it myself. The wrenching was pretty easy, but pressing the old ball joints out of the knuckle about killed me. At least I was shaded.

There were grown men crying that day.

I cried one day when an ice cream truck left doors open and ice cream was going everywhere. Truck never knew it....people came out from no where...it was sad and funny at the same time. I followed a mile or so and he never checked up.

I too installed a Bluetooth level. I went with the hardwired RV LEVEL unit sold on Amazon and the app found on Google play. I wired it on the same switch i installed that kills the hydraulic front landing gear. Works great once you get it paired and set it up.
