That and a spare fuse for the electrical connection to the trailer in the TV.

I actually have auto spare fuse assortment in mail - there are a number of fuses as such when you open up the converter (I think) that is right under the fridge (unless that is the inverter - I'm not there in the manual yet - will be soon)

I have a couple of the 120v spares for the jack - was told those are bad about going out - not sure about the TV fuse - need to see what type of fuse that is and keep spares - my plan is to keep spares of all of the fuses in the trailer - I'm getting there.

I think there is a breaker in my trailer - I think it is for the fridge? Can't remember - discussed in walk through in passing - ill note in manual soon.

I have not installed the in line filter yet

I need to buy an adapter and figure out how to blow out lines

You will need a compressor with a tank to do the winterizing, with an adaptor that connects to the city water line. The manual is not too detailed, but there are another of good threads on the forums. I always winterize my trailer, blowing out the lines and and antifreeze. You can do significant damage to the water system if lines freeze - and difficult to repair. It does have have to get below freezing for some time, without warming up. Only the furnace can heat the belly - not the heat pumps.

The ceramic heater we use is the Lasko 754200 Ceramic Heater with Adjustable Thermostat

The thermostat is touchy, but it will pass the wife small enough test.

Flushing lines requires speed and volume, not a great deal of pressure. Air compressor alone may not produce volume needed to push a slug of water...

So, a tank is ideal.

My most recent trip to the mountains of Georgia...I had a couple of typical comments.

At a fuel stop near Gadsden, AL as I returned from store to my rig...a few guys were staring at the trailer and asked "hey, how much does that thang retail for?"

I felt in a joking mood and smiled and just told them I was not sure and that my daddy gave it to me for my 18th birthday.

They laughed and one said "I thought so"...

My banker was shocked at the $80,000.
I would have never told her, but I guess she sees it on my credit history...

Pharm, when I recently used the same line, the guy winked, spat on the ground, and said "shore is in great shape, for its age". We both had a chuckle. Jim
