First Trip Out, Found a couple issues

Hello Everyone,

Well after buying our 83 Excella 31' RB about a month ago we went camping this past weekend. The fresh water tank leaks which I knew, I used some JB weld on the bigger leak to get us by, can anyone suggest a good replacement tank?

The main water line to the back of the toilet leaks, not sure exactly what is causing it, need to lean it forward to be able to see where it is coming from.

It would seem the water heater regulator is sticking open as it had a constant flame going, if I put 4 or 5 lighters together that would be the size of the flame. Lucky we were close to town so I capped it off. It is an after market electric switch system, inside the AS I found a new white panel door for it. The AS was parked ouitside near saltwater for about a year and the regulater has oxidation all around it. Hopefully all I need to buy is a new regulator.

My truck might need a radiator flush and new coolant maybe even a manual fan as it wanted to over heat on the bigger grades. My dad has a smaller truck than mine and his TT is almost as heavy as mine and he had no problems.

Other than that we had a great time and loved our new AS!
