That's what I think. I did all the lights in the trailer for less than $30.00

Just returned from a trip from Bend Oregon to Sacramento CA. and now have developed two new problems. The gray water has a leak at a point about 3/4 full, and my AC power was intermittent when I was connected to shore power, and tripped the breaker at one point. Does anyone have a video of the gray water tank removal?

I removed the gray water tank and found two cracks in it. Removed the Thetford valve and replaced the gaskets and plastic welded the tank. The belly pan was is such poor condition I was unwilling the reinstall it so I took it to my local sheet metal shop and had them make a new one using the old one as a pattern. I tested the welds by filling the tank with water installed the tank, valve, and belly pan, after checking for leaks.
I'm still not sure why or what caused my power issues.

Where does the time go! Over two years since my last post. I just purchased a new 120amp Zamp solar panel to help keep my power requirements in check. It's a portable setup and I'm planning on trying it out for the first time this weekend, then I'm going to move the battery to the tongue . Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Wire size? Route?

i swapped out my bulbs, kinda $$$ but nice knowing the draw is so low, hard to ever drain the battery.

How's your bathroom holding up.

Hi Derf, I've enjoyed reading about your trailer. I was just curious about your bathroom. It's been a few years since you painted the fixtures. How are they holding up?

I'm thinking about doing the same with my 77 Sovereign and am exploring paint for plastic vs. epoxy kits some folks use.
