Water heater drain

Not a recent thing, but Texas Jeff wanted a couple pics of it, and I can't figure out how to send pics privately.

I put a brass 90 degree elbow on the drain, and the ran a stainless long elbow through a hole in the bottom of the cabinet and a stainless ball valve on that.

I don't know why, but the pics are rotated 90 degrees.

We have a 1988 Corsair Travel Trailer! Have replaced just about everything in it that isn't part of the frame, but wouldn't trade it for anything.

Here is the link to the tank I used. They show them out of stock now.

https://www.usplastic.com/catalog/it...lickid=popcorn

In hind sight if I were doing it again, On top of these tanks are two circular thicker areas of plastic on each side that could hold a bulk head fitting. The cap is vented but not enough so I drilled a hole just a bit smaller than a 1/4 “ hose diameter and forced it through the thickened circle to act as a vent hose. What I would do now is I would also drill the other side and slip another hose down to the bottom and connect that to the radiator overflow. That would get rid of the loop of hose going under the tank to the nipple and make the hose 6-8” shorter. The tank without a bottom nipple is also $10 cheaper

Made it to PEI, not an epic voyage but 4 hours on the road and all well. Next stop New Brunswick for a couple of days boondocking before headed home. Repair list is already in the making for next season but will get a few more trips this summer in the old beast.
Since purchase 4 years ago so much changed but so much easier to drive, gas mileage better by 50% too, needed these days....

Just installed great set of mesh drawers

We installed a set of these mesh drawers That couldn't have worked out better..
After we saw how well they worked in our friends RV we decided to give
them at try.. We found them on the Container store.com website.

They come in different widths, depths and heights.

The only problem I have is that I just wanted them to organize things. When we finished we found that we had a lot more useable space.. Which means the we'll end up filling the empty space with more stuff!!

I have those same shelves.

I might recommend a strap to hold them in. They WILL slide around and force the door open.

I found webbing/clips on Amazon of course, but a tv retention kit would likely work too.
