$20 in Raffle tickets.....EQUALS.....

Guess you could say that this is for the Airstream motorhome for the next camping trip. Couldn't say no to buying some raffle tickets, and this is what I won! Some good wine, and some cheap booze, what a combo!
Next stop, liquor cabinet in the Airstream.....

I put a new Bilstein steering stabilizer and front shocks on the other day and today I made this little purchase.

I know it's not much but I want to know what you guys in California and Vermont use and why won't they let you use one of these? You may have to increase the size to read the small label. Somehow I think there may be a bit of over-regulation going on here.

Cheers, Dan

You mean, they might leak a tad?

The California and Vermont business has to do with lead in plumbing fixtures, which came from the realization that a lot of cheap imported brass was being used that had excess lead in it, which can conceivably leach into the drinking water. You can still sell that in California but need to include a strong warning about it. A lot of companies just don't want to be bothered and I guess Valterra is one of those. I think some of the black plastic has a little lead in it too. It's all a load of nonsense but rather than stand up to it, companies just say fuhgeddaboutit and sell in the other 48.

But, hey, what I got for my Airstream today was a new set of air chambers from the Czech Republic for the Select Comfort mattress in back. The Sleep Number people can't be bothered if you don't want to buy a new $1800 bed but there are several other companies servicing the replacement market with their own products, think of that.

my first purchase

I bought some light bulbs for the reverse lights. I replaced them and I installed the license plate.

A trip to Walmart...
New 35' Hose for my water Hose reel Restoration, and a black tank washing wand thingy...


Then 2 hours at Home Depot to figure out what I need for my water tank plumbing and the other issues under the bed, and elsewhere.
100' of Blue Pex Pipe, Crimp Tool, and a bunch of fittings, Pipe, and Crimps, etc..

Key,
Keep us posted on both of your plumbing repairs. Not much accomplished for me today on the moho. Did pick up ANOTHER battery for the beast. Guess I'm just gonna disconnect the thing until I figure out what's pulling the drain on it.
Thanks, Derek

The things you don't notice

Didn't realize that the one Thin Lite above the kitchen area wasn't in my 'supplies' until after the deal was done. Amazing the amount of light they produce, and how dark it is without.
Maybe one day, I'll convert them all to LED's, but in the meantime, there is light!

Steve, which way are 'we' looking at your ductwork? Towards read of the Airstream? Can't quite figure it out. You've got the 345 with the rear bed on the streetside, right?
Thanks, Derek
