With the additional information and pictures I have a have a greater appreciation for what you have been able to accomplish. Airstreams do not leave much space for a 6 footer to shower and also have the gray water get into a holding tank within the frame wells. I have calls into both the guy I know that welds and Mr. Salwender.

My project for last spring was to finish converting to all pex by replacing the copper under the sink area and the old faucet. No more junction leaks!

This year was a repair started by my battery not being charged during the winter by the converter, which is located under the platform bed. After reaching as far as I could and not finding bad fuses, I had to pull out the mattress and wood under it that makes up the platform. Not fun.

Turns out that I had to do that to see that the wire nut connection from 110 to converter had come loose over 6 years and 6000 miles.

Ok. The next 6 year old instillation to come apart was the pex fitting to the toilet. I didn't put in enough wiggle room, and it broke a fitting on the toilet. $27 and 3 hours figuring it out and fixing.
