Yes the female turns, i must not be coordinated enough to hold with back of my hand, i seem to hold brass 90 degree fitting while turning female with other hand/fingers and cap just flopping around getting in the way

Cut the plastic tab that holds the cap in half (cap is loose now). Put holes in each end and thread some string through knotted at each end.

That's what I did on my old camper. Keeps the cap from being lost and also keeps it out of the way when you are attaching the hose.

Nope, they're included. There are three height adjustments for the stairs where they attached at the top, and the feet (TorkLift calls those the All-Terrain Landing gear) have five different height positions and can be changed independently for uneven ground.

Those feet make the steps rock solid and take almost all of the bounce out of the trailer when entering or exiting.

Replaced a roof fan and resealed the tv antennae cable after we encountered a row of very low tree branches leaving the campground today.

Nice work !!! We really appreciated your faucet upgrade, had been hemming and hawing on doing something similar ... so "Thank You" for the inspiration. Haven't decided if we are just gonna cap the extra faucet hole or add a soap dispenser ... we are a little partial to a "foaming" liquid hand soap, which by random good luck also saves us a lot of water. As you pointed out, install was easy-peazy.

Also, "finally" got around to adding a light in the drivers side pass-thru compartment, to complement the factory one already in the passenger side.

Also stopped by the body shop and got an estimate and a place in line to replace the rockers and one cab corner on it (knew that going into it, but such a good deal I still couldn't pass it up).

Fixed rattling pipes by placing foam around the water pipes under the floor from the bathroom to the kitchen sink. Hard to get it into the small hole but it worked in the end. Wrapped the same foam around the pipes from the pump to connections under the the bathroom sink to quietening the bouncing pipe against the wheel well

Installed my Progressive Industries EMS-HW30C. I feel a lot safer after reading electrical horror stories on here and other sites.

The only modification I had to do was to solder the GND connectors to the wire. The crimp connectors supplied will not crimp tightly to solid core copper wire without a press and even if you do it will not be a stable connection.

Also, it would be nice if they offered a flush mount remote display with a display on/off feature.


Also replaced one ceiling light with an LED version with two way switch to see if I would like it and now I will be ordering seven more.

I just tucked mine away in the cabinet. I can't see a reason that it needs to be visible all the time, so didn't worry with mounting it in site.

Normally one would simply create a loop in the solid wire and tighten the nut against it...

But then I don't get my money's worth in using all the parts.

Besides, the 10ga wire would be hard to manipulate in such a small area and get a good solid connection without using a GND washer that isn't supplied.

Just returned home from MORryde. Had the independent suspension with disc brakes installed along with a new pin box and steps. What a difference.
