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.

You can get them at the hardware store, or probably even in the hardware aisle of Wal-Mart or even your local grocery store. Couple of bucks for a couple of them.


Thanks for the tip

Made a no screw base for the Garmin RV 890, itís fairly new and there arenít many mounting options for it yet. I made a base plate for the screw down mount and used 3M VHB tape to mount it.Click image for larger version

In my bathroom the forward walls meet at about a 30* angle the trim piece comes loose (wallboard loose also) and the staples back out causing cuts and scraps when turning on the light. I fixed that by removing all the staples and securing the trim and wallboard with flat head screws.

Pulled out my kitchen faucet, took it in the house and reverse flushed the valves. Hot worked when winterizing but barely a trickle from the cold. Follow up from my clogging probs last camp. Blew air through them, both seem to work similar. Reinstalled. Swivel head faucet wrench is a must.

A question for the group, is replacing them easy enough or is it better to get a mobile RV tech out? I am not good with bending knees if on the roof and it looks like allot of moving ladder or truck to accomplish. Also it seems like it is a 2 person job.

Thanks for any advice provided

If that is the insert trim to cover the screws that attach the roof trim to the side of the trailer, then it is pretty easy.

What did you do to your camper today?

I replaced the CO/propane alarm. It was incredibly easy.
For all you Camping World haters, I got it at Camping World. They had it in stock, black and they gave me a very good price. (Black seems to be hard to find online nowadays.)
Edit: Extra credit for the first person who can say why I used waterproof connectors.

Yes it is and I found some on Amazon with good reviews. I just need to measure to see if mine is 3/4 or 1Ē
