Thetford Porta Potti Curve

I bought this today. I was pondering installing a black tank system vs. a composting toilet and came across this Thetford Porta Potti Curve. At $155 with free shipping, I thought I'd try it for awhile. Can't beat the price.

Long awaited axles finally arrived yesterday afternoon and today was the day to install them. Oh Boy, what fun that was...but got it done, took 2 of us about 10 hours. These are 3700# Axis Axles with 12" Brakes and the fit was perfect.

I got a coat of Aluthane (aluminum filled moisture cured polyurethane) on the new AC shroud we picked up last Friday at Inland RV... tomorrow if it doesn't rain I'll get it on the roof.

While this is an old post but a reminder for those who have new/older style taillights. I bought these for safety reasons after following a trailer whose brake lights were barely visible as the sun hit the back of the trailer. A good investment for all. I bought these from Airstream.

No template needed all the aluminum used was 11.5" X 52" pieces. I just overlapped the aluminum and it creates the curves. The center piece is 11" X 52". I will start a thread and post some pictures to make it easier for you to understand the process. I will call it "Aluminum Interior End Cap" so you can find it easily.

I'm curious to why you used the Pledge to clean the area.

I don't like white fiberglass on top of my Airstream ... and a good coat of paint will help protect the fiberglass. I have an open can of Aluthane and the gel coat isn't perfect on this shroud, either, so I wet sanded the rough spots before painting. It was spitting today, and I'm dealing with pinched nerves in my shoulders so I decided to do some other projects rather than climb on the roof.

I converted the porch light to LED with a MR16 LED bulb I had left over from the inside work; photo attached; I sealed up the top of the light housing with aluminum gutter seal to help keep dust and rain out.

It's a great cleaner and protector for the zolatone. Leaves a smooth clean surface, not sticky or tacky.

Rob put a dishwasher in ours today. It looks great and works so well and so quietly. It should save us a lot of water and time-- we have a large family and a lot of dishes!

I presume you camp mostly with full hookups? Which one did you get?

Can you post before and after pics?
