Finished relocating city water inlet, black tank wash, and installed remote hot water tank bypass. I ll be waiting till mid April to clear lines and check for leaks. Next is outside speakers my Impression 3000rls only has one outside speaker. Then tackle TV mount in crawl through. Sometimes I am not impressed with things that were done but it is getting better.

YES, did mine when it was a year old. Confident it will never leak. I still inspect several times a year but just give you peace of mind.

Cleaned her inside and out and tucked her in for a hopefully short corona nap. Not optimistic but hoping to head west for our campground host assignment in May.

BTW. Itís amazing how much sand gets into every nook & cranny after 6 weeks at the beach in Florida.

Put the slides in, turned off the fridge, locked her up and ordered tire covers. Hopefully we can use her in May.

If the lake is open we may try to see if we can self isolate running the boat this weekend.

Photos of Bathroom faucets

These are the two faucets I replaced the cheap FR faucets with. Lav faucet nice brass fixture bought for $10 or so on sale at Lowes or HD.

Shower faucet still plastic but with cartridges instead of washers. Much more precise.

I removed all the water valves, moved the pump closer to the fresh water tank. I have 3 inputs and more drains now. I can't believe all the water leaks that occurred over the few years I owned this 5th wheel. Simple is better.
The plastics levers were all cracking, I am also adding a water filter in line.
I just put on a Goosebox, so I guess now it is a goose box trailer instead of a 5th wheel.
I insulated the entire under belly and the front cap area,i increased the amount of insulation in the ceiling. over the bedroom.

Foam Wash

Washed camper with new product today. Slick Products foam wash and wax. I ran it through a foam cannon on my power washer. I am now getting rid of the zip wax I have always been using. I was able to foam the whole side and front of the camper and then brush it all in. You can feel the slickness of this product while brushing it in it is crazy. I did wax my camper last year but was looking dull after the winter. One was and she is back to shining. Will be using this more often no more bucket to carry around.

I replaced the high pressure regulator in my 5th wheel. It is located in the left front of the trailer and inside the propane bottle storage compartment.
The reason for the replacement was that the regulator had developed a slight leak and made a low growling sound during operation. Additionally, it would not allow sufficient flow of gas to fully operate the furnace and water heater at the same time. Click image for larger version

I looked at mine longingly and hoping that the crisis resolves itself soon.

Considering what those with the illness and those who are caring for them are going through, I can easily put up with not being able to go camping.

Re-screened the bottom of the screen door into living room / kitchen where one of our dogs had torn a small hole into it. Then I locked it back up. May install sewer hose holder tomorrow.

What did you do to your camper today?

PhatSteve, I love my foam cannon. Use it three to four times a year on our rig. Best invention ever.

Do you use the Slick cleaning products as well? Or do you use other products with the foam canon. Iím seriously looking at the Slick products for my rig motorcycles and truck. Thanks

Slick products are top notch. Today I power washed my deck which is all composite. After that I hit it with slick products wash and wax. It left the railing feeling slick and shiny. Time will tell if it holds up but I feel it looks much better than anything else I have used.

Thanks Steve I appreciate your feedback. I like to get things that people actually use and give feedback on it. This site is a wealth of knowledge and feedback. I see you are in Somerset Iím over in Ewing in Mercer. Maybe when we can camp again our paths will cross. Stay safe and well.

Started to dewinterize my camper, heading out Friday evening to a local, isolated, private campground for the weekend, need a change in scenery we have both been working from home for about a month. Found a nice isolated spot in the campground, nearest neighbor will be 30 fert away and it overlooks the Des Moines river valley.
