Palm tree

Hello Steph.. No the palm tree is not stained glass but a vinyl decal we bought last winter in Fla... but we do have our WBCCI numbers done in stained glass... will post that sometime soon... Marvin is more relaxed now and we have decided if the trailer is done we go and if not we will stay here for the winter.... .. his health is more important than any trailer... but I know when it is -30 he will be wishing to be south...

Hey, great idea with the hose bib. Not only for the reason you mention but also when you drain or flush the tank it might be nice to redirect the water somewhere other than a big puddle under the trailer.

I just discovered this drain in my trailer. I posted a question but I guess my subject line wasn't very descriptive (or enticing) so I'd appreciate anyone with some PEX experience to take at look at this thread:

Leak in feed from water pump

Thanks for your help.


Marvin
I saw a boat that had the upper portion of the rub rail the same color as the hull, the lower section of the rub rail the same as the deck and the black insert in the middle. It looked pretty good but was in a visually different position than the rail on our campers.

I got the city water inlet in this week end. It is a surflow with a water pressure regulator and one way valve in it. Have gotten a lot done to the inside, just haven't had the time to post any pics. Trying to beat the cold weather.

I got the new furnace in this past week, The bearings were gone in the old one and was full of mud and other bees nest, the water line leaked over the top at one time and rusted the case out so we just decided to go with a new one. All appliances are new now except the water heater, stove and a/c.

I will have a lot more pics of the inside tonight or tomorrow night.

I'm looking at your waterline routing. I assume the blue line I see leads up to the pump for the fresh water tank? Is that the original routing? What if anything covers it as it goes up the wall? Mine ran underneath the furnace vent to the outside and then up the wall on the rear side of the vent. Along the floor there's a metal molding/cover up to the kitchen counter. Nice and concelled but now that I need to remove it it's totally unserviceable without removing the furnace (which of course means removing the counter too).

Hi Bernie, Yes the blue line is the line going to the water pump at the front of the trailer, to the right of the furnace. That is the way it was before. I don't know why they would have ran it under the furnace as they still have to come up to the sink. But again after doing this trailer I don't know why they did a lot of thing the way they did.

Thanks Marvin for another great idea!! We also have to work on our water system as the pressure regulator is shot in our 75 argy.

Is that a baffle/separator in the hitch compartment? Did you insert this as a protector for the water hose?

We're in the start of our rainy season on the "wet coast" - wish we could find a nice dry big barn for doing some exterior trailer work over the winter. At least we can complete some of the interior work.

whitelight, I just put the separator in the bumper compartment to help keep it tidy and help protect anything I might be putting in there from rolling around and hitting it.

Put in full extension slides with self closers to keep them closed while traveling.
