Overall, we had no problems.

Driving across the Top of The World Highway, a stone sheared off our fresh water drain valve. It is a good idea to protect it due to some stretches where road work and gravel cannot be avoided. I found a replacement valve in Whitehorse at Fireweed RV repair.

Trying to decide between 1/4 and 1/2 inch hardware cloth. Not sure whether or not 1/4 would cut down on cooling air flow.

I've already wrapped all of the water and gas pipes and electrical underneath the 23D with closed cell pipe insulation tubing. This should help with avoiding freezing in the winter and possibly make for better propane flow in cold weather.

Next will be to build shields on both drains on the water tank enclosure.
