I like that sewer/water hookup. Do you have more details?

-----------------------------------------

I thought if a water supply was within 10' of the sewer drain it had to be marked non potable.

Maybe that's only in parks though.

Since I'm the only on using it I keep it clean and don't allow the two to mingle. The sewer hose isn't disconnected at that end. I disconnect from the RV, cap the hose and leave it laying on the floor when I leave, second hose in the RV to be used on the road.

Garage is 49' x 52'. Heat and AC. Two 50 amp plugs one inside one outside for guests, water and sewer. Ceiling is 18' in the RV bay wired for four ceiling fans if the AC and heat have trouble keeping up, so far not an issue, it's in the 90s and the garage is 70.

Seemed like it was going to be too big during construction but I now wish i had made it just a little big bigger.

I've rarely seen 10' separation at campgrounds but not often that close.

Does anyone have an official source of the regulations?

For those of you with a shop that doesn't not have climate control.... Do you leave the ACs on in the RV (set to 75-80 or so)?

Curious if it would make sense to do this and place a bucket under the gutter drains.

Not unless someone is staying in the RV. You're just moving the hot air from inside the rig to inside the shop, and making that environment hotter. Since the shop becomes hotter, the RV AC then needs to work that much harder.

I set mine at 85. I have a ridge vent and 5X5 exhaust fan in the barn.

Same here, we keep it at 90 and have a 12" exhaust fan in the RV tent. We do put buckets under the gutter spouts.

If it is not to late I would highly recommend that you consider a 14x14 door.

Door

I have 14x14 doors on my building. I have to agree that you may appreciate a larger door if you can still make the change. If you cannot then you will be glad you built it long enough for any coach. The construction process is looking good. Post more as progress is made. I enjoy watching the progress.

Agree on the larger door. If you do you should get a new engineering design to account for the reduced wall area. Increasing the door size on a short wall will need some extra bracing for stability. Could be a simple as applying thicker sheeting for extra strength.

It should be fairly simple but if your garage is being inspected the inspector will not allow the change without an updated drawing.

We added a man door to the end and as a result had to sheet the inside wall with half inch sheeting instead of 3/8. The wall is 36 wide and has a 16' wide door and a 6' wide man door that I could drive our garden tractor through (until we bought a tractor with a wider lawn mower!!).

Too late. We are 130 inches wide (mirror to mirror) so that leaves me approximately 7 inches on either side to play with. Will definitely be taking it nice and slow when parking or departing
