ROTFLOL!

Well, at least it's saying something that you think you can drag your project all the way to Vienna! I don't think ours could even make it out of the driveway at this point. It does sound like removing the tub is much easier, thank goodness. However, you know these things--I'm sure something that's been remarkably easy for me may end up becoming your next epic adventure!

Up early, ready to go to the lumber yard, boat store and Harbor Freight. If you are still in the area, maybe you'll be there, too!

Mary

Hi Mary,
Actually I am back down in Richmond now until at least August, I hope to be able to bring the AS back with me in a couple of weeks so I can at least work on some of the small stuff in the evenings. I haven't been very good about taking pictures of my progress...or the lack of...but Buttercup's pictures are very similar as to what mine would/should look like. I am just glad they did theirs first

Aaron

Glued down?!?

That would be horrible! Our tub was not glued to anything except the vent pipe.
Our tub sat on a platform that only sitting on the floor. It was not even fastened down. All in all it was fairly easy to remove it. Lets hope that it goes back in as easy!!!

Hi all,

I have question. When I run my water pump in my 75 TW I have a steady flow that comes out of where the water hose connects if I had hook-up. What needs to be replace? I am at a loss. My pump is forced to kick on every few moments as the leak continues. It is a pain to have to keep turning the pump off and on. Thanks in advance for any suggestions/remedies. Bob

The pressure regulator that limits the pressure from the city connection is also a 1-way valve. Some years may have had a different backflow preventer, but to the best of my knowledge, the regulator serves both purposes. On my '73, it is under the bathroom sink, and too the right, toward the streetside corner. very difficult to access, and for that reason, the quick/simple/cheap repair is to get a threaded plug for the city water hookup. costs a buck or 2 at any RV supply store. keeps bugs and crud out of your city inlet...but can also be used to make a water-tight seal.
