Question, are you opening the over pressure relief valve on teh front of the water heater when you turn on the city water? It takes a few minutes and an open hot water faucet or the pressure relief for the tank to fill (It fills from the bottom).

I didnt have the trailer power pluged in I was just using power to a power strip but when I pluged in and used the trailer power the hot water flowed so being hooked up to just the faucet I really dont need the pump so thats good, couldnt get the hot water tank to light or the furnace its a bit rusted so maybe its just needs a cleaning did hear and gas going to either one , I did get the stove burners lit, the piolet to the oven lit but the oven didnt come on, since its getting cold here I just went ahead and winterized the system for the winter and installed a by pass valve to stop the flow of water to the hot water tank so its back to working on the celing again, so almost everything is working now and repaired just using a little space hearter in there to keep it warm when I am in there working on it posted a few more pics of the hot water tank and its componets not sure which has to be cleaned to get the gas flowing again, not sure on the furnace either what to clean or uncloged 1974 Coachmen Cadet pictures from outdoors photos on webshots

You have done such a fantastic job! You should be very proud of yourself and your accomplishments. I haven't posted in awhile because I forgot my password and then had trouble resetting it and on and on. Anyway, what are your plans now? Teri

The anti-freeze doesn't go bad, but, its always good to pump a little extra in in the event that the lines lost some. How are you getting it into your lines with out a water pump? Or are you just blowing out the water lines and using the pink solution in the traps?

ok I will pump a little more anti freeze wasnt sure if it went bad or not, I didnt get water going through it this year at all at least not so far, as far as the water going through it when I hook a water hose to it and open both hot and cold valves and have the trailer pluged in it just flows like it should guess its all about the presure of the flow comming in the trailer but its nice not needing a water pump or tank at all, just have to be hook to a water and electrical source, havent gotton around to try to light the hot water tank this year either

If its an all metal roof like a mobile home, scrape off what you can on the seams and edges.

Get some black (wide) butyl tape w/ paper backing.

Spray and wipe the seams with a solvent (starting fluid ) to remove oily residue.

Then take a propane torch and heat up the seams and apply the butyl tape so that it sticks down.

You can run the flame over the tape a little to melt it in. Then kool seal on top of that.

Make sure you do the edges as well.

This will allow for the normal expansion and contraction of the seams during temperature changes.

Wait for the inside to dry out.

It may take awhile because you have plastic membrane up there that will hold water for awhile.

After its dry, spray the areas that are intact with straight peroxide to bleach out the water spots (repeatedly).

After about three or four applications, start using straight distilled water to re-activate the peroxide.

The areas that are ruined need to be pulled down and replaced with ceiling tiles.

Make sure you put some replacement insulation up there.

I left out one step.

Wash the roof with Tri Sodium Phosphate after you are thru scraping, before applying the butyl tape.

This will etch the metal to give your sealers a better grip.
