Was looking at the water heater today and found the hot air discharge completely blocked. I guess it's a good thing I had already found out the water tank had a leak. Electric water heater on list.

Clean Roof

Today I cleaned and conditioned, with UV protectant, the rubber roof on the MH. I can't believe the difference it made. Tomorrow I start the install of my 400 Watt solar panel system. I am excited to get it done!Click image for larger version

Please tell me what product you used and what time you are coming to my house to do mine. Looks great.

Yeah. It's only a 3in. tube. And it's a 1993 with about 12,000 miles. So they had plenty of time to hire an architect. Organize sub contractors. Seriously this is not the worst I've seen. When I took out the old Norcold I removed at least a dozen wasp and hornet nests. I have used bug bombs more than once when buying long stored vehicles. Especially when buying from out of state.

After some sage advise I managed to solve a nagging problem with my HWH system.

What brand did you use for your rubber roof? Mine needs something, no leaks and in pretty good shape for a 1998, but can't get it white anymore.

Fixed both Fantastic Fans. Fixed the front door latch. Now have a working entry door. New tail lights installed. Two new steer tires installed. Had it weighed too. It was a busy weekend for sure.

I went over to the storage yard and ran the generator and roof A/C for an hour. Both of which I seldom use but I want to keep them in working condition.

Plus I got to sit down in the cool air for an hour!

Walked past it several times, then loaded my tool kits and a few items in the refrigerator for our weekend trip that begins on Wednesday.
