John, we usually go to the May race at Dover. Last year we went to Charlotte for the All-star week. Not sure well make it to any this year though. Plan to stay closer to home this season. We always have a blast at the races.

Don, good job on the crapper-flapper. It looks factory. I have to get me one of those multi tools. I've been eyeing them for awhile now but have been holding out on getting one. I'm redmodeling my basement and I have a lot of trim work to do and that looks like it would make things a lot easier. Also liked the bailing wire tool.

I keep it at a storage facility and had brought it home to do a few more things to it. I level it to run the slides out.

However, when I had my Outlaw at the house for long periods with the jacks down, I would spray them with silicone spray to keep them from drying out and possibly rusting.

Leak? I don't see no steenkin' leak!

I bought the Multi-tool just to install the new floor registers. I was told to get a corded one because they can kill a battery pretty quick. That thing punched straight through the floor for a nice square cut and no over run of the perimeter.

Slide....Slide....Turn left....Turn Left... Wall.... CRAP!

Crapper Flapper rev B. Added a backing plate with stainless steel threaded inserts and will use 10-32 stainless steel threaded flat head screws rather than the big brass wood screws. Never have I been so excited over a Sewer project!

I've got a Dremel, RotoZip and Rockwell SoniCrafter and they are great tools. Wouldn't do home remodeling without them.

Touche' on the Wall my good friend.

Don

I am "almost" going to feel bad running crap past that work of art. I recieved my flapper today and removed the old elbow. Funny we are talking about leveling jacks. I kept seeing my right front jack had puddles on the pad and on the ground. So today I ran my genertor for an hour and jacked the rv up and spun the tires a little bit. (flat spots) anyway I noticed a little seepage on my pressure line at the actuator itself. I put a wrench on it and got almost a half a turn onI wiped down ran it through a few times and it looks fine now. Simple fix I know but I still thought I would pass it on. Don sending you a PM.

Don't install it just yet. I just sent you rev B which includes the backing plate and screws. You'll like the look of it much better!

I'm glad to hear your leak was a simple fix. The Outlaw guys were experiencing failures on their leveling systems pretty regular. I was fortunate and never had a problem. I hope I'm as lucky this time around.

Don maybe you should contact Thor as well as other manufactures and start selling them. Its got to be cheaper then the way they are doing it right now. Just don't forget us little people when you start collecting those checks.

If they went back to a simple plastic threaded ring and cap it would be cheaper! That's what was on my Outlaw and it was perfect. Threading the plug into the ring was a bitch and many times it cross threaded but who cared. The Flapper is pretty simple but I doubt cheaper!

I do have one more completed assembly left and no one else has asked for it so I'm thinking I have a limited audience.

Thanks you two!
