Very true, read occasional tales on here about gray tank over flowing thru shower drain due to a trickle in a sink or shower. Cheap insurance is a $10 water alarm setting on the shower floor.

Installed a new faucet and drain in the bathroom sink. Boy, is sure is hard finding a drain that will work. All sinks now seem to have an overflow basin, and of course, my MH does not!

My old Chevy P30 uses 1995 Ford F-150 headlamps...they were yellowed out and cruddy, so i picked up a new set and installed them this afternoon, along with a set of 55w driving lamps....I will now be able to drive at night...and not by braille.

All I have to do is look at mine and wait for our trip to Artisian Springs next weekend. She's washed/waxed and all has been checked.

A new motor

I have added to the list .... when I turn the water off at house, and electrical is on, I now turn off the icemaker in the fridge.

EXACTLY ... and if you really want to spend time looking, try finding an oiled bronze finish in a non-overflow drain.

Installed a new hatch with combined shore water and fresh water tank fill ports. Had to cut a pretty good size hole, but it worked out ok and covered up the old holes nicely! No more leaks, and for some reason I feel better having a locking door to my fresh water gravity fill!

Greased the chassis. Started at 07:30 while it was still only 82 degrees. Finished by the time it hit 93 ...

Thanks for the info. this is the first time on any forum for me and It's great
I'm assuming it's a n/o switch and comes on between 85 & 100 degree, can the fans come on at a cooler temperature or will it affect the boiling point of the system

Replaced all the fuel fill rubber with proper ethanol resistant stuff. There were signs (and smells)of leakage.
