Ok, here is my completion of a planned project- making a nice mattress- organic cotton cover, solid latex with memory foam gel topper and coir bottom and cotton pad- The pad is rectangular thus, the messy curvature.

A hole in the roof!

Actually, found the 'pan' was cracked and 'patched' in several places... This shot is toward the bow.. I had to "carefully" use a razor knife and pliers to cut out all the 'extra' sealant...which was 'gluing' the AC to the PAN.. and PAN to the AS!!!

Took 3 hours to get to this point.. all from inside the AS.

NOTE: you will find lots of water and slimy junk inside the PAN... it is a terrible, terrible place...

Tomorrow my son and a friend will assist applying the 'fix' as Lewster recommends...

It's not a problem to modify the cord for a variety of connectors. Mine isn't a Viair, but I used Anderson connectors to make connectors for battery clips, the power feed on the truck side of the umbilical connector, and the Anderson connector pigtail from the trailer batteries which is normally used for my suitcase solar panel input.

A European cassette is a totally different thing than a portopotty thst we use here. Outside access being one difference, but still a good alternative to a black tank.

Very happy with ours. The little green light is an LED, wired in line with the on/off switch, all installed where we grabbed the power. Sometimes the connection between the phone and router wonders but is resolved by turning the app on again. It has become a must have just like a cell phone. JimClick image for larger version

Had an impulse buy over the weekend.
I already own a Milwaukee 18v drill and flashlight.
I decided to purchase the blower unit that works with the same battery.
It seems to work great. I intend to use it for blowing dirt out of the back of the truck bed, cleaning up the campsite and cleaning debris off of the Zip-Dee awning before rolling it up and countless other things. My 6 year old daughter found out how much fun it was to chase the cat with the blower
My next purchase for this tool kit will be the Milwaukee 18V fan.

We installed a two pole twist-lok receptacle in the 23D refrigerator compartment with 12Vdc power. I cut the alligator clips off the Viair compressor and put a female two pole twist-lok fitting on the clips.

I made a 25' 10-2 extension cord with male and female two pole twist-lok fittings and put a male fitting on the cord coming out of the Viair. I can now air the trailer tires or the tow vehicle tires.

The female connectors were Hubbell HBL7506C Locking Connector, 15 amp, 125V, L1-15R and the male connectors were Hubbell HBL7545C Locking Connector, 15 amp, 125V, L1-15R which can be sourced from Amazon.

I see people purchasing the Viair compressor, which model as there several. I had purchased the #70, but found it was for small trailers and had a 25% run time (10 minutes). I returned it.

I don't own a 12v compressor yet but I would get one that has a 100% duty cycle. If you have a truck you may also consider putting a tank up under the bed of the truck.

450P - unlimited run time, fairly quick to top off 4 trailer tires. I like it!
