Hi Toastie,

Looks great! What's the round thing attached to the pump (pump inlet?) in the second picture in post 819?

Its a system like you would use in a home, inside the 1.1 gal. blue tank is a blatter, keeps a steady stream of water at 40 psi, great for very low water pressure at rv parks. Here is a link that will give you a description.

In the picture that is a built in inlet strainer, come with the pump.

2840 Series 2840 Series Water Booster System > ITT Flow Control - Engineered for life.

The little Things

Your work is so ......thoughtfully practical... for lack of better words.
I so enjoy your posts and pictures.
One thing though, in my trailer, the pump and water heater, close to the bed, wake me up way too often. But I always know when the water is dripping somewhere.
Hope this is not a problem for you like it is for me.
Some sleep over the air conditioner, forget his name, great work though. White noise, I think it is called.
I used to be able to sleep through anything, old age and kids did me in.

Thanks FastRob, I will not install anything if I can’t service it, for instant, the below tanks can easily be replaced without disturbing the inside, I can change a tire without opening the trailer or TV, installing a new AC, just slide out the old, slide in the new. All rv, and in your home there will always be noise. My 1965 Airstream Caravel Dometic's Penguin I would say its 30% louder then my 1955, putting AC on top a 1955 Airstream was never an option. The pump has 1.1 gal storage tank for those get ups at night stops, plus there will be 8” of foam on top, I will guarantee no leaks here. We I always sleep with a fan on when not camping, see no problems here, very happy.

Nice! I am probablly going with the same setup. Is the white cap (to the right) a clean out or is that for a grey hose adaptor?

How necessary is the clean out? Doesnt look like it would get in the way, but is it over kill? Why not on the waste line ( assuming the one in the picture is on the grey line)?

The reason that I put the clean out in was I only had a T fitting left and wanted to finish the job that day. Overkill, yes, but then you never know. When I open the gray line there is a straight shot to the waste line.

I have a question too, is that a sanitary Tee or a squared off Tee? Is there a sweep or hard 90 degree turn in that Tee fitting?

Very Nice find - probably that much aluminum there for someone to have foolishly sold them for scrap. The price is great.
