New washer for sink faucet to PEX pipe fitting. But I didn't really buy it...........

Fitting was leaking. Bad washer (worn out) Found out by accident. Getting black tank treatment from under kitchen sink - wet carpet!

To Ace Hardware - no washer to fit.

Lowes. Found a new fitting. Associate tried to find washer - none for sale. He pulled out a fitting from a returned faucet and gave it to me.

Used washer from fitting to replace my worn out one. Leak stopped.
Now drying out carpet/wood under sink!

WTH do the manufacturers think when they put carpet under a sink?

Had to repair my front leveling jacks on my fifth wheel.
It was a sheer bolt. $2.17 at the hardware store!

Last time I had a leveling issue with my coach I just sold.
It was a failed hydraulic jack. $1726 at the repair shop.

I love owning a 5th wheel now!!!

It is just like carpet on the shelves - keeps things from sliding around when you travel. This piece is out, cleaned (bleached) and going back in today.

Time to replace that oddball faucet. You don't want a faucet that you can't find washers for. Just a matter of time before it leaks again, maybe on the road somewhere. Get a faucet commonly used as a household one. They are nicer, cheaper and easy to get parts for like the Pearless.

Good News... I got a heck of a great deal on a Roadmaster Towing package. All the arms, legs, covfers and hookups to go along with the above and a towing brake system with all the wireless hookups included.

Bad news... wrong baseplate for my unit.

It is a residential style faucet. The issue was the washer in the PEX connecter on the rv PEX piping. THAT washer was worn. Either replace the fitting (no excess pipe length) or find a washer. Found a washer.

Free "new" fitting and old washer.

I bought something similar to 382 Piece O-Ring Assortment from our Princess Auto and boy is it nice having all the various sizes in multiple. For the money it is worth having just for such events, and the box is small enough to store in my tool bay.

I bought two O ring assortments, one metric, one SAE. Over 150 in each and super cheap. Good old Harbor Freight. Good for hydraulics or water. Overhauled all my jacks. Just can't use on air conditioning systems. You need the green ones for that and they sell those too.

I got a Roadmaster auxiliary rear sway bar for my Coachman RV. Got it for $150. Slightly used but it's all there. Too bad I have to wait til warmer weather (called spring) to put it on.
