I know it's not super pretty, because it involves a wire running where you can see it, but I plug a wire directly from the headphones out on my TV to the aux input on the front of my stereo if I want the TV to use the stereo speakers.

Replaced the Coleman-Mack analog thermostat with a Honeywell digital one and sealed the opening up behind it. Next up is removing the on board water filter

Milk crates do fit propane tanks well but I believe the OP was concerned about keeping it upright during a hard turn hence their comments... "Add a strap and it'll take a hard turn to flip that over."

A milk crate helps but won't keep it upright... I know!

Milk crates help but you need to strap it down or pack it in tightly to be safe. I was looking at the extended sections making a larger footprint for the tank. It'll ride under the lower bunk via the storage door.

My stereo does not have an Aux input, maybe since it is Bluetooth.

reinstalled underbelly

Finally got the underbelly reinstalled on the 5er after reinstalling the water tank. Much better than factory.

If you leave your black tank flush going does it act like a sprinkler?

Seriously how do those work?

They are designed to act like a venturi as the wind blows over them. Kinda 'sucks' the stink out.

Although in 40+ years, the standard vent caps have worked just fine in every R/V we've owned.

Lubed my slide gears and rails.
Lubed the electric stabilizers.
Lubed the folding steps.
Lubed the tongue jack, I went dry lube crazy. LOL
Fixed a leak in the outside kitchen drain. The pipes slide inside one another as the sink is in a slide. The rubber coupler came off the larger stationary pipe.
Fixed the dripping faucet in the outside kitchen that the dealer said they fixed.
Flushed the antifreeze from the water lines.
Flushed the water heater and ordered a new anode rod.
Cleaned the drain plug threads as they were caked with calcium buildup.

You don't flush the water heater (and replace the anode if necessary) when you put it to bed for the winter?

Camping World winterized it as they had it for warranty work when the cold weather rode in. Had no choice. Just cleaning up the mess, so to speak.
