Took it out this weekend after sitting for the winter

I took my 73 Overlander camping at a state park this weekend. Had some frustrating kinks to work out. Little things that were caused by not thinking ahead of time. I have been slowly changing out the Questia plumbing fittings with Shark bites. This has been a slow process because of the cost. Questia fittings are terrible for plumbing. I had to fix three different leaks which all were located at the questia fittings. The other problems were grease ants. They moved in over the winter. I had to bug bomb the trailer when I got home. They were a problem and hopefully t hey are gone. The last thing was the airconditioner. It worked great last summer but it was not cooling this weekend. I have to fix the airconditioner and leak. Other wise everything else worked great. I did pick up a propane smell which means I need to get my lines checked.

Sounds like you worked out most of the bugs. I'm going to try to get with you next week. Somehow, I have 5 weeks without the pager from work starting next Monday. Maybe we can get together and compare notes on a few things. Call me when you get a minute.
