Busy here too. I'm trying to rework the plumbing around my water pump with some extra valves so it will suck water out of a transport barrel and into the fresh water tank. Of course that required me to remove half of the bed platform. The first cut is the hardest.

May have an RV tech lined up soon, in AZ.
The motor does enough charging while on the road for overnight 12V use.
Camping has come back in style! A 110 line from the pedestal allows cooking-by-wire.
Stay busy, Muties. We wouldn’t want anyone to go crazy

wow... is your water pump external to your fresh water holding tank? mine is inside the fresh water tank.

Are you going to use a tent there in AZ? I'm wondering if the winds are going to be problematic with that. That and snakes... maybe put your truck platform bed into the tent? Snakes will eventually hibernate... but not until it's pretty cold at night.

I sleep in the truck full time now. Tent given another owner. Cot gone too. Got pretty wet in Texas. All dried out and heavy sealant applied. Of course you know it means zero precipitation for quite some time, now that I did that. I have invested in a very nice shower/emergency pottie/changing tent. Very challenging to pull up ones drawers while crouching. Showers are nice!!$

Just so ya know what yer missing: (pics).

Lessons learned since Sunday:
1. Watch where ya are walking here. (Ankle wobble dance.)

2. Do not apply silicone while wearing your favorite outfit. Even though it says it dries clear.. cuz when ya was it... it will be sticky and bright white.

3. Wind is deceptive in the desert. It’s stronger than it seems. Stuff blows farther and faster than a Walmart bag in a Minnesota parking lot in January.

4. Some folks think that “potable water,” means it’s not safe to drink.

5. Don’t have to wring the clothes too hard out here. Still dry amazingly swift. Heck! I could do several loads!

6. Desert folks are stupendous!

7. More Mutants on the rise over yonder.

No more stepping on errant socks at 4 am, in the nude, in the dark, near a desert wash. Truck for perspective.

Yes, my Seaflo water pump lives in a bay next to the freshwater tank. I assume your pump is submersible. If it ever dies you might want to switch to a different type of pump.

It's great to have someone around who speaks English. Companions who only speak Capuchin and Canine leave lots to be desired conversationally.
