Hopefully it will work out, I picked these up in Florida in December. If the guy can do it and needs to order the valves I can call and set it up with him.

Got curtains

My wife did the curtains for the front room and bedroom. The gaucho is out for reupholstery in a grey and black pattern. We added some color with the curtains.

New gaucho covering

We got our gaucho/ coucho back from the upholstery shop. He did a nice job as he always does, and we selected an automotive grade fabric that is kinda retro.
Grey and some black, very herringbone & tweedy. Next we will add some pillows to put in more of the curtain color. Also have to recover the Leg-o-matic chairs.

Dropped my Worthingtons off to get new opd valves...thanks KevinB for helping me get that handled locally.

Back on the PEX plumbing tomorrow and hoping to have most if it done this weekend.

(the little spot is in the photo not on the couch)

Finally got my aluminum LP tanks done. OPD valves in and ready to go. Repaired the plastic cover over the vent pipe in the shower. Added a few missing rivets here and there. Soon I will be able to hit the outside with some clear coat stripper.

What was the cost of the OPDs? I went to get one of mine done last fall, and the quote was kind of ridiculous....like, "just buy a new tank" kind of rediculous.

85 for both installed, re-certified and filled with gas. Pretty good I'd say.

Got the dual regulator on , opened the lines and checked for leaks. The stove fired right up. After 20 yrs of sitting idle that was good to see.

I know Shannon will be happy. You have done a lot of work in a short time. Can't wait to see it, and you!

I got the rgulator off Ebay for half the usual price. I do need a bit longer hose on one side though. These are 12" I could use 18". But it works!!
Sold my copper pipes this morning for 75 bucks! That pays back almost all the money I spent on Pex.

finally finished the PEX. tested it and no leaks...but the water heater tank is bad. I thought it was ok, but it has a split at the very bottom. AARGH.
I am gonna put in a shut off for the input on it and worry about it later. Camping this week with cold water is better than no water like last time.
My PEX at the back end looks like a mad scientist's project. I will post a photo so you all can laugh.

I am thinking of the Marey tankless water heater I saw in Scott's Spartan.. For us it would work well.

Pex humor...and one more leak

Ok here is a the rear access door shot of some of the Pex. The rest is straightforward and looks ok. This part is kinda crazy...go ahead laugh....

The second pic shows the valve on the Thetford that has a little drip.l tightened it but it seems to be coming from the boxed part where the screws are. Can this be replaced?

Used the trailer for a 3 day campout in the mountains.The tiniest leak I was able to fix, so it was dry and everything went great! Enjoyed the fruits of the labor.
