Yes, thats possible too, Al.
I just sealed the hell out of everything, and so far its been dry.
As I said, that snow stuff acts like a poltice, and if there is a weakspot, it will hold the moisture there until it wicks thru by capillary action!

Had a little scare last night. I looked out the windshield about midnight and saw tree branches on the windshield. We had about 3 inches of wet snow and the weight pushed a couple of big tree limbs down on the MH. All looks ok this morning...limbs are 5 - 10 feet back up about the MH.

I have two portable electric heaters and the furnace going. I do turn them down a bit at night and keep it about 64 degrees.

Well the rain and snow this last week was a disaster. Pulled up the carpet in bath and bedrooms. At least I can check out the hatch over the gas tank!

Its drying out a little bit here so back to the air compressor and air lines. I built a divider for compartment so elect cord and water hose won't be laying up against the compressor. Last week, I treated the compartment with a anti rust chemical. Its still too cold and damp to finish prepping and painting the compartment, so will pull out compressor at some time in near future and finish that. Hopefully I can install new air lines tomorrow. I had also stripped and repainted the old Square D pressure switch. I also built a new mount for the air compressor.

the pump was working fine, so didnt have to do anything to it. I'm replacing all the air fittings and I wire wheeled the release valve to remove the rust on it. I put on a new check valve about 6 months ago. The pump is a great pump. It is a heavy duty continuous duty pump. The manufacture still makes basically the same pump. The solenoid works fine, but it was all rusted up, so took a wire wheel to that as well and am painting it now.

I put the new air tank in last week and i will run and hookup the new air hoses tomorrow.

I installed the new air lines from the compressor to the air tank, air bags and air horn. Also installed an inflation valve so I can manually pressurize the system.

I pressurized the system to 100 pounds with my garage compressor. The air bags inflated. I will see how much pressure remains in the system in the morning.

I have some "new" old parts to install tomorrow.
