I would have a drain. It is impossible to get everything out of the tank and water heater with the pump.

Since I’ve installed a shut-off between the pump and the tank can’t I just cap off the existing drain?

I'd hate to see anything interfere with the new furniture , but I think a drain is a good idea. When we use our trailer for the last time before winterizing I open the drain before we head for home. That gives lots of time for as much water as possible to run out. I also remove the pump and store it indoors. In the winter you'll probably be heading south to some place where the temperatures will be well above freezing while our trailer sits in the snow, but I still think a drain is a good idea if you can fit it in.

Air Conditioned Workspace!

Things are moving so fast now that I can hardly keep up.

Dave, a local refrigeration man, evacuated the lines and fired up the LG split air plant for me today.

The Art Cool unit works beautifully. So quiet, inside and out, that its hard to believe.

Everything “factory new” or better.

One of the things that bugged me about the original Argosy was the lack of attention to details. Every time you opened a door or peeked behind or under something, it seemed unsightly: unfinished plywood, jagged metal or protruding screws.

No more musty corners. Everything “factory new” or better.

LG Split Air

The winter work shed became a summer workspace with the addition of some screened openings all around.

It’s usually very cool in there, what with the fresh breeze off Lake Erie.

But yesterday, no breeze. Stuffy. So I clicked on the new LG split air for the first time.

WONDERFUL. So quiet that I often had to walk over to the machine to see if it was still blowin’ cool.

Split Air Completed

Post #176 showed how we hung the LG Art Cool split air blower unit on the wall between the bath and mid ship bedroom.

I covered the access opening that we had to cut to route the A/C supply lines through the pocket door wall with a brushed aluminum panel, glued on with PL Premium.

Finished, it now looks as if were always a part of the LG unit.

It’s really nice to have the workspace cooled now, like a reward for all the effort.

looks fresh!

I like it... THIS is what the new Sports should look like... I still think they look like warmed over SOB's.

Clean, simple.... what more could you want (minus the cool LG and diesel options of cour$e!)

Have you thought about fabric options yet? Curtains? I'm curious on how you will treat the front wrap window.

Fabrics and curtains

Marc:

I’d like to go with a new roller blind I saw at IKEA called Tupplar.

They come in three nice colours – khaki, midnight blue and white – and have a blackout lining.

I plan to use them on all the windows, including the centre one in the front wrap around. I will try to use the existing rails for the wrap around glass portion and see if Ching Mei can make me those curtain panels from left over Tupplar material.

The only other fabric in the trailer is on the two gauchos, front and mid-ships. They will be upholstered in a GM Oldsmobile Cadillac specified woolen called Dorchester Grey.

Glad you like things so far.

Sergei

Who is the manufacturer of the cooktop? I don't think I've ever heard of or seen a diesel fueled cooktop. Is this specifically designed for RV use? Very cool.
