Actually, Iím not sure about that with the new can thatís in the picture. I used to have one of these kind of jugs:



But when I went to use it on Friday, I found it had developed a leak. So I replaced it with that can. It only came with a cap, but given the size of the cap, I might be able to fit a spout from a jerry can on it, then I could probably fill just by pouring.

But then it wouldnít be filtered, this way, I can run it through my water filter on the way in. With the TT, I had the onboard filter, so I didnít worry about the tank as much, but with this fiver, if I donít filter it on the way in, then Iím brushing my teeth with unfiltered water.

Itís just a bit slow this way. Works, though!

As for me- on Saturday, I hung a pair of fold-up cup holders on either side of the couch, attached Trones at the foot of the bed (theyíve been sitting there for a while), and hung a Camco grab bar for the screen door. I tried hanging a toilet paper holder under the 1/2 bath, on the back of the cabinet door, but it runs into the sinkís plumbing.
What fold up cup holders did you use?

Ouch.

My wife worked at the same place, they closed the doors. 2 professionals' incomes vs. 2 unemployment incomes.
Ouch.

Some people have had their FW tanks fall out but most are ok. I regularly travel with 55 gallons and have never had a problem.

Oh ok. I was starting to think about reinforce b4 my trip. But if it dies I'll just run it over and head to the dealer I guess!

Roo/Shamrocks and Mini-Lite/Micro-Lites were having issues. A few other brands have also had them.

Here's a thread. There are others.

The wife and I got tired of things falling out of our front storage compartments when we opened the doors to setup at a new CG so we installed 1/2" plywood to keep all items inside of the area. This also allows us to put small items there now without worrying about loosing them.
