Silly Question what is the real point with the attached sprayer? I see them from time to time but we wash the outside of the bowl with Clorox Wipes and use Toilet Bowl Cleaner on the bowl after each trip?

Sometimes while camping the diet suffers a twist and the output is in a state of change. The sprayer negates that change.
Hopefully that is understandable and we don't need to "go there". lol

We use ours occasionally. Love it.

What the others have said is spot on. There are 6 people in my 5er so at some point excess paper is used and other times skid marks happen. This lets you easily wash down the extra paper and skid marks.

Well Put we will let it lay there and not touch it again or spray it again. I always wondered but now sorry I asked

Install a WindyNation 100 watt Solar system the beginning of last week on our Flagstaff 207SE. Using the factory installed ProPac roof racks, I attached the solar panel to the roof racks with stainless steel 5/16 x1" carriage bolts, washers, lock washer and nuts. Then ran the panel wires with a inline 10 awg fuse down the outside using a 2 Pin Power Connector Male Plug Bayonet Waterproof #IP67 to a Furrion Solar Port inlet connector. From there connected 10 awg wires to the charge controller mounted next to the OEM charge controller box. Then I installed a set of 10 awg cables with 10 amp fuse from the battery to the solar charge controller. Approximate cost $150.
Went boondocking this past weekend to Mustang Island State Park (TX) on the Gulf and the system worked great. Had plenty of DC power and the solar system kept my battery charged the entire time.

I titled and and tagged the new truck today - $611. I also scored a great deal on the now collectors item Steel Andersen Goose Neck Mount hitch. I originally planned to order the Aluminum version from Andersen, but they are back ordered a week or so, and with shipping couldn't guarantee that I would have it for the trip next week. He recommended that I call a local place that sells them and see if he would split up a package (said he would even ensure they ship them the replacement parts). The didn't want to split it up, but offered me a new in box steel version for a huge discount. I really wanted the steel version anyway and was bummed to find out that it was no longer made.

Now I have two steel versions. One the rail mount for the 2500, and the goose neck mount for the dually.

Attachment 145073


I have the aluminum version and won't ever tow without my Andersen, since we use my truck as an everyday truck so light and easy to put in and out as opposed to a 200-250# traditional 5th wheel hitch, love ours.

Replaced the light strip under the awning after several had gone out. Started getting hot, so turned on the air and installed the Blue Streak system and then replaced the bathroom door knob with a lever-type.

Yeah about half the LED's are out on my awning light and I love the Blue Streak system.

Six New tires for the new truck today.

Gonna order new pads, rotors, and hardware later for a full brake job. Hoping I get time early next week to do it.

Next week we will look at trying to add more electrical outlets in the living room and maybe move the middle of the room light switch for the toy compartment.
I guess I am stupid... I just use the leveler legs pin adjustment for the leg length.

Another use for the hand sprayer is it makes it much easier to fill the bowl , when needed.

Removed and replaced the original exhaust fan with a MaxxAir Plus fan. 10 settings, ceiling fan mode, rain sensor, and auto settings. This was my first intrusive project. Typical nerves as I opened up the seam. It took me longer than what I estimated due to cleaning off the old butyl tape. it has made a significant difference in keeping air moving.

Installed a Polk sound bar vice using the piss-poor original speakers that exist.

Installed a mobile hotspot that we purchased from 4G Community. www.4gcommunity.org so far a great option for our wifi connection. It runs on the Sprint network. Unlimited and unthrottled throughput. Works on 3G, 4G LTE and 4G Plus.
