I'm looking for a replacement bulb of the hallway night light. The ones on the floor and some are covered by a hood. The one I bought is really bright. I'd swap them all out for LED if I knew the replacement for them.
Thanks!

Thanks, Steve & Jim.
It has been an interesting adventure trying to get the RV protected. This darn Texas sun just beats the snot out of the thing. I started with going with a portable car port, but city rules prevented that. Then it took me 4 months working with the city to change the laws & get them to pass an increase on detached garage size (now no limits).
The painting should be done this week along with shingles. It's been a long process just to protect my investment, but well worth it. Once complete, no more winterizing as both garages are climate controllled.

Here's how she looks today:

LED REPLACEMENTS FOR WALK WAY LIGHT, DOME LIGHTS, CHANDELIER
Some as low as 1.76 each...yes actually $1.76 each
Just use their conversion tables for current bulb# you now have. AND we have learned that the Floor Lights look good in COOL WHITE, But if you have wood paneled walls WARM WHITE is better for reading.
VERY WELL PRICED And quality, as they burn 50 to 100,000 hours.

Hi we bought our 2011 40kt new in Texas and drove it back to Vancouver Canada. We try and spend winters in S.Cal. And sometimes in Ariz.

I have a question regarding the sewage connection. I don't think the guy who designed the sewage connection for my coach had any idea how the dump hose connected to the rig! I have had to cut a larger hole just to get the connector to meet the rig outlet. The connection point is a) too low and, b) situated such that I could not twist the connector to the rig outlet....very frustrating! Has anyone else experienced this problem?

We have a 2008 and it is always a challenge to hook the hose up, the hole in the pan should have been in a slightly different place. One of the many small items I have yet to fix.

I will take a picture of the fitting I use...it is about a half inch deep on the flange that goes into the stinky slinky...makes it much easier to connect/rotate down for exit to the discharge port...but there is no doubt the whole configuration is not a very good design...but I understand why Damon did it...its all about gravity and space utilization...

I couldn't agree more. Who ever designed the waste hookups was really not thinking. I have found that it's best to hook up before dumping your air and levelling. I bought a 135 degree elbow which points straight down and connects to the exit valve prior to connecting the slinky. Unless your site is very flat and level there is no chance of using a hose support. The designer must have believed that you know what really does flow uphill. I have friends with Winnebagos and Tiffins and their outlet valve is a good 18 inches above mine. Although the waste tanks are mounted on top of the fresh tank it doesn't help much. I hope I never get a leak. The black tank sprayer has become blocked and I have been told that the ball valve in the inlet fixture seizes after a while. Just another fun job for when | have nothing else better to do. Has anyone every replaced the inlet valve on the black tank?

NEWEST Stinky Slinky

We just purchased the newest Stinky Slinky from DrainMaster.com
I am now waiting to see if it fits the basement opening as well.
I would Rather not do any enlarging since it would be hard to make a good cover.

see here Polychute
