Frank- Did you use self-tapping sheet metal screws or did you use a bolt?

Thanks, Rick

OK GUYS, HERE ARE SOME MORE DETAILS/ANSWERS.

A LOCAL FRIEND/MECHANIC/ALPINE OWNER (JOHN SCHROEDER) MADE SEVERAL OF THE PROPANE FLOORS. ALL I HAD TO DO WAS INSTALL IT, WHICH WAS RELATIVELY EASY EXCEPT THAT THE COMPARTMENT IS NOT SQUARE. I USED BOLTS AND SELF TAPPING SCREWS I THINK. THERE IS ONLY ONE ROW OF LOUVERS AND AN OPENING AT THE LF JACK. FROM THE "CURRENT USED LOOK" (I.E. DIRT) THERE IS LOTS OF AIR FLOW. I DON'T RECALL HOW THICK THE METAL IS; HOWEVER IT ISN'T CRITICAL AS IT FASTENS TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PROPANE TANK SUPPORT BEAM AS WELL AS AROUND THE EDGES.

THERE IS A GREAT SHEET METAL OPERATION HERE THAT CAN MAKE THE FLOOR - AND JOHN MIGHT HAVE SOME MORE; HOWEVER HE HAS MOVED TO McMINVILLE, OR.

YOU ARE ALL WELCOME TO SEE MY STUFF ANY TIME YOU'RE IN YAKIMA OR WHEREVER WE MAY MEET.

Frank - My water is great. I haven't had any problems with the RO System or filling.

Too bad you haven't planned some time for ACA in Quartzsite - Our Apex is in a mobile home park in Ehrenberg, AZ - We will be heading out there about Jan 16 & probably going home the 27th. Maybe we will stop and look for you at ODR coming or going. We were out there 2 weeks ago & it was windy & freezing cold!

Merry Christmas to you & Cathy!

WELL TRIS,I HAVE TO HAVE SOME TIME TO SKI A LITTLE, SO WE'RE STICKING AROUND HERE TO DO THAT.

WE'VE HAD YEARS WHERE IT WAS COLDER DOWN SOUTH THAN UP HERE - I HOPE THIS ISN'T GOING TO BE ONE OF THEM.

GLAD TO HEAR YOUR VAGABOND SYSTEM IS DOING WELL.

CALL US BEFORE YOU HEAD TO EHRENBERG SO WE CAN GET TOGETHER.

AND A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TWO!!!

the weather in Indio has been much much better the last few days...was 78 in Palm Springs yesterday and 76 here in Banning... will have to see how it is with this passing rain storm.

Hope to see you all at the DRR!

Hrhuggie,

Where do you stay in banning? My mother lives at Sun lakes; we usually spend a couple of months in the area each winter. I have been on the waiting list for several years for a spot in the Sun Lakes RV storage. Unless we go to Palm Springs/ Indio we have not found any nice RV parks.

Wayne,
We have a house in Banning and our storage is close to the airport. Our house is the next 55+ community to the East of Sunlakes off Sunset.

Palm Springs really does have the nicest RV parks in the area. There are a few others in the area (near Idlywild and off 79 heading for San Jacinto) but not nearly as nice as most in PS
