The trick would be for several of us to visit Wayne at his home - on the same day - with our coaches - without telling him ahead of time. Has anyone done a Google Maps search of Wayne's address to see how many coaches we could park along his street at one time?

With the Aqua Hot turned off when we were traveling it stopped. No water pressure to the lines as we only turn the pump on when needing it traveling.


At the house, and at the advice of an expert Aqua Hot technician I found the leak. It was either the inlet or outlet connector on the Aqua Hot.


Those connectors are like a water hose connector, plastic and only require hand tightening. Of course Winnebago could not put the access hole in a convenient place and my are would not twist to get pressure on the connector.

My neighbor was outside and much younger than me, isn't everyone, and he was able to put a good half turn on all the connectors. No more leak.


Just a sayin'


Thanks, Wayne!
My issue is likely the same cause. Iíll be looking for a person with very tiny hands!

Dave, that was my problem. The connectors are at the bottom left of the AH and the small opening is at the upper right of the AH. Like Duh! I wonder what smart craftsman designed that idea.

With that said, if I ever have to access that area again there will be an additional hole.
Also need someone with strong hands, not arthritic, to turn the connector. They do make it easy though. They are the connectors like on a garden hose with little thumb wings on them.

Yep, the Barberly Hillbillies arrived on our glorious 1.03 acre of land in the middle of nowhere, AZ. There is no one around for miles. I've yet to even see anyone drive down the main road south of us.

So many decisions to make - and fast! The winter season is coming to an end and it will soon be too hot to stay here. I'm buying a used 40í shipping container and trying to figure out the best place to set it to get some shade from it. As of tonight it will sit with the 40í side facing southwest. I'll park the rig parallel to it at 8í distance so I can put the 8íx24í shade cloth I already have between the 2 so we'll have shade on the driver's side wall and a cool patio underneath. Of course by morning that plan may change.

Lily and Sena LOVE it here! No more leash for Sena. Lily is a runner so she has to wear the 30í leash until I can get the fence up. All the new smells have her busy all day.

My biggest challenge is cell phone reception. It's best at night with 2 bars, but during the day I'm lucky to get 1. I'm working on getting a signal booster.

All Muties are invited to join us. Just be aware that as of now there are no hookups and it's 2 miles of washboard road to get here. I hope to remedy some of those next year. Or if you'd like to be nearby, there's an RV park 2.5 miles away that charges only $150/mo for full hookups.

Did I mention that I'm having a blast? I can do just about anything I want to do here. I can tinker to my heartís content.

Way to go Barb! You've found a second home place.

Does that CG 2.5 miles away have a rally room?

Are you thinking a Barb coordinated GC for next winter?

Umm, to avoid further problems with a certain person I'm not saying on an open forum because it would give away my location. I'll email it to you.

It's in Yuma County.
