Unfortunately, there likely isn't a shut off and the manufacturer doesn't typically provide plumbing schematics.

You'll need to drop the underbelly to get eyes on the problem.

What did you do to your camper today?

Replaced regulator from propane tanks. Stove is now functioning properly. Water heater not so yet. Hmmm.

Got the awning poles I had kept from the Vengeance TH installed on the new rig. They fit perfect and still work great. Next is installing the electrical lines and hooking up the LED lights.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Took pictures of the roof. I noticed some black lines on the roof that go side to side. Looks like the plywood seams. From what I have read on the internet it is not unusual and is nothing to worry about, according to alpha systems. No leaks or structural issues. I am going in for service next month anyway and will have them confirm.

Pulled the TT onto my back door patio to load for this weekend and mow its last parking spot. About half loaded tonight.
Got out the old Kil-A-Watt meter and checked voltage drop on the patio and the previous yard parking spot on the other side of our driveway. Voltage drop excessive in that yard spot when running AC about 190 feet from main CB box. Not bad on patio with 1/3 the AC power line distance. New yard spot will be directly beside the garage side nearer the house. I'll cut a hole in the siding for an even shorter power run to the current (pun intended) inside garage outlets. Power line will only be about 20' longer than the overall run to the patio. Will place 20" square x 2" concrete pads under the tires, tongue and stabilizers there. Still considering a dedicated 30 amp circuit to the garage.

We were headed to Meaher State Park in AL. Lane surfaces were uneven. Changed lanes. Fishtailed. Spun & rolled. Everybody (including toy poodle) is okay with cuts & bruises & sore but ok.
Gonna be total loss. I feel so stupid & inept.

Trying to get rent car & try to salvage a little contents today.

Appreciate everyone’s sympathy & good wishes. FRF folks r the best!

Y’all please be careful out there.

I live near Mobile and camp at Meaher State Park frequently. Where did this happen? I want to make sure if I travel this area I'm extra careful.
