You are welcome Sharonogoingsolo, it really is an easy job, it took longer to measure it three or four times than anything else. You will not have any problems. But seriously, make sure the bayonet fittings turn, the solid ones are a real pain to use. I have have had mine for several years and replaced one o-ring just last year. If you are going to be setup in one spot any length of time well worth the few dollars and few minutes of your time.
Good luck, if you have any questions, just ask.

Are there fittings available for the PVC or do you just have to do some "special" engineering?
Get one of these:

And one of these:

3 inch pvc slides right in. after that it's just a matter of cutting the pieces and placing the elbows (if needed) so that it goes where you want it to go.

Here's how I did mine. I have 2 outlets so I just tied them together with the pvc to make it easier.

I have no issues with that.
I drove truck for years and now have three different trailers, a 5x10 utility, 7x14 cargo and my 8.5x33 camper, they all handle different, but basically all the same.
We are all here to help each other when we can, It will not be long and you will be giving advice to someone new.
I never took a school or any classes on driving, but, I was lucky, my Father though me the basics and let me practice with our ( his ) camper. Like everything else, after you have done it a million times, it's real easy. Everyone of us had our first trip, first backing up. You did it, the next will be easier and the one after even easier...
My wife can tow as well, she just don't want to, but she did it all the time with the boat, made it real easy for me.
When you have a question, ask, that's how we all learn.
Happy camping, travel safe.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I learned to drive on my dad's John Deere tractor when I was about 12 - I probably was about 13 when he started to let me drive his truck. I have pulled boats, flat bed trailers, and UHaul trailers too - I don't know why the 5th wheel scares me so bad.

Replaced the RV Back up camera with a upgraded version with an extended antenna and a new monitor.
Replaced the water filters and seal on the bottom of the shower door and dicored the seams on the roof!
Did a complete vacuum and mop of all the floors.

Been a long day so its time to settle down with a stout and relax.
Tomorrow will be loading up to leave for a week long trip to Wind Creek for the holiday.

Cheers

We hung on to our daughter's bunk bed ladder when we gave her top bunk to a friend. Today I trimmed it a bit and my wife painted it to match the interior, and now our new Wolf Pup 16BH has a ladder for the upper bunk.

Today I put up a shelf and a rechargeable lantern with Velcro, and hung up a cheeky cowgirl wire decoration
