shhhuuuuuushhhh...he wanted to get his own small welder - but I was able to find someone to do it way too cheap! It put us a bit behind DH's schedule- but it has worked out okay.
(I will probably let DH get his own small welder once we actually have a garage for him to keep it in though. )

Fridge Front Blocks

I worry about silly stuff- including the fridge sliding forward- so DH has done something to help relieve my worries -


The fridge base plate should be back on by Thursday.

More photos on the blog

Mr. Willard,
The part numbers are SCRAP-L and SCRAP-R depending on which side you need.
I don't think my DH will charge too much if you need a set.

jimbo- the exterior needs some work to it but I will get some photos of the exterior next week. (It is hard to take any photos where it is sitting right now, but we plan on moving it next week.)

Water Leak Almost Cancelled Vacation!

I am sure glad we put the water lines under city water pressure today- otherwise we could have had a big problem at the first RV park that we stayed.

Here is a photo of the repaired water lines.


You can see more about this on the blog.

You can also rent the crimpers from a tool rental store.
I don't think I would trust hose clamps on a plastic connection.

Diva -- I worked in the Park Model business for years, & have seen many waterlines with missed crimp rings -- Some not discovered for a long period after the unit was put into service -- I was a outside service "tech" for a RV dealer, & one Christmas morning, I recieved a call from a customer, that her Park Model was flooding -- I found that a pipe under the bath lavy had came loose -- It had never had a crimp ring -- This unit had been in service for almost a year -- After the pipe goes over the barb fitting, it`s hard to pull it off, so a hose clamp will work just fine, but crimp rings are better --
Looking forward to meeting your DH -- He seems to be very talented -- Maybe he can help me with some of my problems -- Is he bring his tool box ? William Willard
