If that food source is removed, the mouse would look for other interesting nibbles in the trailer somewhere.

Perhaps an alternative meal that sends it to the promised land would be useful, like a last supper.

Also received my new PD4655 55 Amp Converter Upgrade Kit from Best Converters. Hope to get this installed in the next few days. Have been educating myself by reviewing posts on the AS forum from those who have shared their experience and documentation on making the upgrade.
Took my time installing the new converter, went very well and is working perfectly. Also finished up the install on the new bathroom door latch. See attached photos.

One reason we upgraded to the 25fb was to enjoy the view out in the mornings, but half of the year we can't because of condensation. Hopefully our new dehumidifier will help.

Mine is not as exciting as all these others. Just recieved my box of goodies from AS store. HOLD YOUR BREATH! Sealant kit with Acryl-R pump, corrosionx, walbernize and LED's. Sounds boring but after a long cold winter, I'm ready to do some TLC.

We did the same retrofit for a smaller Dometic model. Big, big improvement. Some additional DIY tips here:

I need to get yet another re-calibration of all tank sensors under warranty. The micropulse is worse than useless, with every tank sensor insanely wrong. It's a shame, but I know this is a common problem.

I have owned several RVs in my long and somewhat unproductive life. My final evaluation is that the only good monitoring system consists of:

Black tank - Flashlight shining done the toilet with flush valve open.

Gray Tank - water backing up in shower drain.

Fresh water - pump makes funny noises and water flow from faucets slows to spurts.

Propane tanks - "That's why you have two."

You will find that once one accepts the inevitable adoption of these methods, that daily RV living becomes less stressful.
