Got a Berkey shower water filter for Xmas. Going to try it at home to see if I like it enough to put in the MH.

Also got a 30 amp extension cord.

Tired of fighting the stiff old Camco fresh water hoses so...
3 new Flexzilla hoses. What a difference.
Also, a new plastic funnel for my Anderson Ultimate Kingpin Adapter.

One of these air leak detectors! So much easier than soapy water, and I don't need to dodge the water dripping anymore. Why didn't I buy one of these 5 years ago? Probably because I didn't know they existed. -Bill

I know, not very exciting.

We put our coach into storage for about 4 months following our return from fall travels and before a trip south for part of the winter. I try to have the DEF tank nearly empty for that storage. In anticipation of departure in a few weeks, I ordered 4 jugs from Walmart for delivery to my home.

4 jugs exceeds the minimum purchase to qualify for free shipping and is sufficient to nearly fill my DEF tank before departure. A few mouse clicks on the Walmart website and less than 24 hours later, they're on my porch.

Take care,

I was checking the oil level in my 1998 Pace Arrow. I felt a slight burning sensation. I looked carefully and the coolant recovery tank had a tiny leak. I have a new coolant recovery tank on order. I also have a new grey water tank valve ordered.I got tired of finding my sewer hose full of grey water when I went to hook up to the sewer.

Installed a 12v tank heating mat and lighted switch so I can charge my LiFePo4 at sun freezing ambient temperatures. Also installed an acrylic barrier to protect components in my pass thru.
