Thanks for the basin wrench idea. I fought tight space for an hour getting the toilet out. Today is reinstall day. Your tip will help with that horizontal connection. I was mystified until I discovered tool marks on the PVC. Lousy engineering, for sure!

I just keep the tool and an extra plastic plug in the compartment next to the heater.
That's why I used a small dab of anti sieze. Dissimilar metalls can usually be a problem via galvanic action. Usually aluminum and steel are a bad idea - think an aluminum cylinder head and a steel spark pluk, i.e. a Ford V10

New pump housing/switch, new valve for water fill and new city water valve. Water pump does not try to endless loop the water tank and no water out the city water Valve now. Still have new check valves for hot water tank and when I winterize in mid October I will change them.

All the best
Terry

My tiny bathroom is made even smaller by all the stuff Istore inside and on the door. It's one of the monkey proof areas of our home. The door was always a fight to get it to stay open until I added this handy, can’t get lost doorstop. One of my favorite upgrades!

Thanks for the idea. Our bathroom door won't stay open when the RV is level. I like getting ready for the day with the door open and the bedroom door closed because there is more elbow room. I thought about a cute door stop but then that is one more thing to secure down while traveling. While this isnt as cute its certainly more practical lol

Today is our wedding anniversary. For DW's gift I went to Home Depot and bought a new toilet seat and then installed it on the Thetford Aria Deluxe II for her. A man can't love a woman more than that!

When we both were very young newlyweds and basically broke, I duct taped a cracked toilet seat together for my young bride. She still ribs me about that 48 years later. I have a feeling that your story will be retold many times in the future. BTW, Happy Anniversary to you two.

A sense of humor is probably the best way to get through life (and forums). We have been together for only 29 years so far, but somehow, she appreciates how to make life fun with someone like me.

Today I pulled the trigger on a new set of tires for the RV. I ordered online a set of 8r19.5 Advance GL283A 12 ply rated tires. They are scheduled to be here Tuesday.

When panels are mounted with an air layer underneath they last longer and create great shade. I can feel the difference inside my rv on the ceiling temperature.
