A month or so ago, I added an Oxygenics shower head (no pics) and an RVLock wireless door latch/lock set. Today I did some more additions. Added bug screens on my water heater door, furnace outlets and my Dometic refrigerator access panels. Also added an external Pentek filter, mounted behind my spare tire and connected to the City Water inlet with a heavy duty water heater hose (pictures below). The filter is easily removed for travel using union hose fitting at City Water inlet and hose end of filter housing. Working tomorrow on the Blue Streak system I ordered at the Goshen FROG Rally for my commode.

Washed and waxed the TT yesterday. Cleaned the interior as well.
Found that the curbside slide fuse had blown and replaced that.
Fixed my shower head mount which I found on the shower floor!
Need a long weekend to recuperate from all that work. Can barely move my arms today.
Getting too old for this Stuff!!!
DW Wants to go look at a 5er today...

Mostly cleaned up and allowed awnings and canopies to dry after a little soggy weekend.
Getting ready for the next trip - hopefully in another month.

Added the 360 Siphon vent topper to both pipes. Also scrubbed the awning, had some mildew.

Added some reinforcement to the cap seams with Eternabond.

Still trying to find a good antenna replacement for the junky unknown brand one.

Have you looked into a King Jack? We replaced out old factory antenna with that and it works pretty well.

Did some routine inspection and found loose U-Bolts so I torqued them all.
While I was under the back end I noticed that the belly cover was hanging low in the center. I attempted to push it up and it was hard to move because it was the fresh water holding tank. What I found was the tank bellowed out the bottom like it grew 2 udders.

I had some 1.25 square steel tubing laying around and made a bolt-in cross member to support the tank. All is well now. Close one!

Hows the install for that, wire for wire? I have a Coleman Mach manual one, and the slide is just really a guessing game

Mine was wire for wire.. I had to pay someone to do for me since I'm color blind. Love the ease of use and no guessing

Ours was also wire for wire. We love that the a/c will actually turn off once in awhile without wondering why it didn't with the slide. If you are going to do it, I would recommend you get the (blue) crimp sleeves vs the wire nuts.

Got confirmation that the digital is a wire for wire swap. Was shipped today, hope to install this coming weekend. I'll post how it goes.
