Was that weld plate for posts for a roof? I can't do a roof, unfortunately. Village codes....

I didn't do a conduit, as my AS utility needs are on the house side and the same streetside of the AS. Can't do a clean-out port for black as it is in the basementabout half way through the house. If I ever need it, I guess I can use a macerator through the window.

Water and electric (30A) are already in place.

BTW, went out and looked, rebar pins are more like 2' apart.

Another full day got the forms removed, pea gravel in the meter opening, and a lot of backfilling, sodding around the pad, and rolling the sod into the EZ Roll paver. I think it's done , except nursing the sod to full health.


Oh yeah, wrote the check!

Has anyone looked into buying a power pedestal? There are several sources on line but I wonder whether a Forum member has found an economical one for home use? I'm buying a new home with zero landscaping so I will have a parking area graded and was thinking of hooking up to the sewer and having a power pedestal. Here ins SW British Columbia we get a lot of rain in winter and I'd like to keep the power plug protected from the elements. We have ordered a 2016 Flying Cloud 25FB Twin and it has a June 19 build date.

Aha! I have one of those boxes on the rough in spot for a heat pump. Never thought it would do for an RV. Great! They even lock.

Level the area; provide drainage, and - due to the weather extremes - use crushed rock (1/2=3/4") for ground cover. The tendency for even well-packed with rebar / wire concrete panels to crack and heave ...would no longer be a consideration ... we already replaced two panels...

Make sure the electrician knows it's 110!

Stories pop up here all the time about Airstreams damaged by plugging into 220 volts mistakenly wired that way by electricians. Be sure your guy (or gal) knows what you need and confirm the voltage is right after the job is finished. It will save you and the electrician much trouble if it's wired correctly the first time and the damage never occurs.

And even if they get the voltage correct they may get the polarity reversed. Check it carefully. Jim

Good technique!!!! Remember, tho, I had a couple electricians I had to "inform", not "teach" about RV wiring...

Also the old adage, "It works via smoke and mirrors... If you break the mirror or let the smoke out, it won't work properly!!!

I relearn that from time to time...
