Ah! Edumacated person. Barb, Chuck's answer is correct, I dont' know about your MH, but if I look behind the toilet in mine I see that connection from the wall to the toilet. Might not be the same as a riser in the house, but I'll bet with all the hair spray (not me) and bumping when cleaning, etc., it needs to be checked and changed. I wonder how long PEX is good for.

The tour guide was extremely upset but the tourists got a big kick out of it. The riser can be seen just below the seat in the center.
I was there beginning in 1994. The hose is very similar to a bidet. Good for cleaning tools and such.

It's amazing how much YAK mileage we can get out of a toilet. Everyone on the mailing list knows what YAK is.

I learned that the riser was the pipe in the center of the tank and what you are calling the riser, I was taught to call a fill tube or fill pipe. I suppose like many other things, toilet parts are called different things in different parts of the country.

Where are you traveling - what are your plans for the spring / summer. We have mutants moving toward Arkansas - and then some are off to who knows where... Then there is the PNW Midi-curiosity in the works. Your RVM family can't buy ya a coffee or adult beverage if they don't know where to find ya!!

Share your plans and maybe meet another mutant or two. Mini-Cs are Grand - ask anyone who has participated in one!!

The attached covers the big one. We have our annual Easter Weekend, no rules campout coming up and hopefully I will have video so you can see the noisy fun we get up to.

I grew up in the Montreal area and Eastern Townships and my sister lives in the country south of Montreal, so we will also see her. A city lights tour! Also considering heading south to Florida in late October and storing the trailer for a few months there, returning for a month or so in the winter, perhaps with daughter and doggies. We shall see! I am hopeful.
On our first Gaspe' tour we were in Quebec City for three days. After putting up with the rude Quebecians, I decided we'd never take another group of tourist back again. It made the tour so much more pleasant. I don't envy anyone going to Quebec. Maybe they treat Canadians better then their southern neighbors.

I assume you will do some railfanning while covering all those beautiful miles.

We had a gorgeous double rainbow yesterday:

The northern end was squarely over the house where I grew up.

And the southern end was clearly attached to our farm.

So since Universe is closed, we have not one, but two -- count 'em -- two rainbows to use.

Cheers!

You betcherbooties we will. That train bridge in Lethbridge is a couple feet short of a mile abutment to abutment and needs to be taken in again. Also there are miles of parallel track / chose highway route to enjoy. 4 of our chosen campgrounds have special location requests for "as close to the rails as you can put us." We get annual steam fixes with our local 100 year old Mikado hauling passengers to McLean's Mill but if you want more than six cars at a time we have to go off Island.
