I can see the water level in the tank next to the valve or slide a panel between the benches and see level also.

That's an awesome project - what I like best is that it looks like original Airstream design. It doesn't look like a DIY job.

Your post inspired me to get off my duff and complete my own magnetic board, which I have wanted for some time because there are next to no magnetic surfaces in the Interstate (and I'm guessing the same is probably true of trailers). A before-and-after shot below, with instructions and sourcing in the blog post, including two caveats for would-be magnet fans.

I have not bought anything in a while - just had a long weekend of boondocking in smokies with old friends and still no itch to buy anything - which is pretty nice

Not for the trailer, but for the tow vehicle-
Front receiver hitch to carry bikes on the front of the truck-
Easy install-
The bumper looks like it was designed to have a front hitch-

Another roll of Supernight LEDs for the top of my belt line. I guess I need some goo-b-gone to get rid of the old sticky tape 😕

It was definitely the strip that failed at that joint. The underside of it was corroded together 😕

Odds are good this not a long term solution but for now - I'm ok 😁

Are you sure that is legal? Seems it could impair your vision and the effectiveness of your lights???
