Peter, I've got one of these on its way to me from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Will be an easy mod to allow reversing operation.

We've found that from time to time, we need a bit of air circulation but, because of rain, we're not too keen on opening a window. So, whichever Fantastic Fan we run has to pull air through the open-but-turned-off other Fantastic Fan (following this? I'm a lousy explainer). So, I figured it I could reverse the front fan to pull air in, it would work in conjunction with the rear fan (pushing air out) for more air flow through the trailer.

Well, that's what I've been telling myself

Your explanation is easy to follow. This seems like a good option as well. Are you also doing the variable control for fan speed? Looking forward to hearing how the swap works out. Always good to let someone else go first and fill in the blanks for me!

Good stuff. I agree with rob. You can get more air with one pushing and one pulling. The real reason though for everything you said just the variable option to run slower and save some amps.

I agree. We need a 23d rally. I think outside Tulsa is the place. Halfway between Colorado and Alabama. Where else would you all be coming from thatís more than 9 hours from Tulsa? Any west coasters?

Ronnie, did you have to get an adapter to fit the new hose and valve you brought from Home Depot to the new toilet, or did you find one that fit right on.

I bought the one you linked to and the fitting is to big to fit on the new toilet. Should be able to get a different one or an adapter pretty easily.

Let me know bro

This also looks interesting, got this from Wachuko on the AI thread:

http://www.aquaviewinc.com/rv/

What say you 23D Modders. Looks like a way to save some water. I usually put the cold water generated while waiting for the shower to get hot in a bucket I use for rinsing washed dishes.

Hey everyone, I read in some posts that some of you use powder coating. What systems do you have and what oven do you use? Is it worth it, or should I just use spray paint?

Park City! 1200 miles! I'd just consider it an investment in my Continuing Education requirements.

Seems to be a cool idea, espec since I boondock most of the time. Would need to get behind the shower wall and run a line back to the suction side of the pump. That might be the deal stopper? Don't have my trailer at home so I can't go out and poke around to see how easy or possible that might be?

The 23D thread

Competed the New elongated toilet install today. Ran into a few issues because of factory install that cost me some time:

1. Caulking around toilet platform was poorly done or completely missing. Had to re-caulk all around.

2. I also bought a no-slam lid and changed that one out, kids like to slam them shut.... not anymore

3. The toilet flange was installed incorrectly and crooked. Most flanges have fixed and adjustable holes to mount the toilet. Normal people install the adjustable holes so they are east-west so you can rotate the toilet on the flange to make sure itís straight/aligned. Thanks to AS, the installed the adjustable holes north, south, and the fixed holes east west, meaning I would have to tear out the entire pipes and put a new flange etc. in. so my toilet is off alignment slightly.

I needed a few parts for the install as follows:

1. A 1/2 inch threaded male/female 90 degree elbow. ( the connection fitting on my toilet is 1/2 inch).

2. One of those push connectors that Ronnie suggested, I used a slightly different one that had a right angle and 1/2 inch connector, 20 inches long. Link below:

https://www.homedepot.com/p/BrassCra...HX-F/205395457

I also replaced a piece of the PEX to make it longer so the valve would fit beyond the aluminum cover. I had the Pex pinch crimper so that was helpful.

Overall Iím happy, a little pissed that they installed the flange in a stupid way, but itís not to bad. My question is this. It looks like the ball in the toilet is off center. Is this a problem and have others noticed this? It seems to seal fine and flush fine.

We're from Tulsa, now living in OKC. We would be glad to help make this happen. The Tulsa fairgrounds has a nice large RV park in the heart of the city.
