Thanks for a great story, Derek
That day certainly put a smile on my face!

Another aha moment

I was talking with one of the guys at the shop where I have been having Ste P worked on and my list of things "to do" now that she has passed the drivability and smog test was growing pretty long......and then I showed him the photos from the maiden voyage weekend with my fellow Airstream ralliers at Lake Cachuma. He then said, "Aha, you have a group and you are into this.......some would just go and buy a new one." So now he knows I am hooked....but to tell you the truth, those guys are hooked as well. They are fixing things that they see need fixing and not even charging me for some of it......they don't mind it being parked there...they know that I will continue to have it serviced there and they are happy to do the work that they have the skill set for and happy to tell me when it crosses over into RV land.....I think this aluminitis is contagious.

Can you tell which one is the Motor home? (Why don't they call them Engine Homes?)

Sink trap

This is the trap I think I'm going to use when I put my new kitchen sink in...

Nice find, kinda like a sphincter in principal. I wonder what kinda noises it makes

Haven't gotten any further in getting a counter top installed in mine. However, working on the cabinetry where a couple of pieces needed replacing because of a leaks over the past 27yrs. Also found a stain and poly close to the original so have redone the kitchen area, drawers, spice rack, and all. Now the woodwork in the bath and bedroom begs attention!

Thanks for the heads up on a great product. I think I'll be using a few of those as I set about rebuilding my galley, lav, and shower. Very cool!

The RV Doctor: What? No P-Trap in the RV?
Dean, have you found these sink traps anywhere. Looking like $22 is the best price I've found so far. Be nice to get rid of P-trap in kitchen and bathroom.
Thanks for the heads-up, Derek

Just installed a compressed air attachment off the rear air bag pump/tank. It works. The two outside rear tires where at 40lbs, pumped them up to 80lbs. These two always loose air???

Finally got my kitchen doors and drawer fronts back on. The match is a bit better then the pics. I like how they turned out! The top drawer is the one I forgot to take home, so job not quite done yet.

well, $22.75, sure there's shipping as well. All of the other sites started at $25 and went up from three. Of course, our 'personal shopper, Keyair might find them for even a better price......Steve???

I usually buy that stuff from Dyersonline, but see they are $25.55. I'll probably order from them anyway, since I need a few other things.
