You MUST Inspect Your New-2-You Rig THOROUGHLY!

DW and I just bought this coach less than a month ago, and - as expected - there have been a few issues that popped up.

The latest is a .59 piece of plastic plumbing that finally gave way under 50 psi of water pressure. It was a small but constant drip-drip-drip kind of leak that soaked only a small area of our bedroom carpet. It was not a huge ordeal - I was able to repair the issue in less than 30 minutes.

But it occurred to me that was should check all the carpet in the bedroom - even under he bed - just to be sure. So, for the first time since we owned the coach, I lifted the bed and checked the carpet. It was all fine, dry as a bone, but... wait a minute - What's that red box over there under the corner of the bed?

A little hidden treasure left behind by the previous owners

Had you cracked the bottle , before the " Hawk " incident , or after ?


Over the years, working at a dealership that dealt in RVs , and doing the required propane system , re-certifications , I found enough ; stuff ; to outfit , my cabin and RVs , some items , I've managed to hang onto, to the present day.
The treasure you've found would not have lasted too long.

Maybe left on purpose by the previous owners?
