I had been using a Gilmour Brass 2-Way Restricted-Flow Water Shut-Off for water to my 5'er. The restricted flow finally got to me so I "upgraded" to a Gilmour Plastic 2-Way Full-Flow Water Shut-Off. Note the word upgraded is in quotes. I should have known better than to buy a plastic shut-off in the first place. Yesterday morning when I went outside I heard water spraying. Yep, the upgraded shut-off had failed and water was running everywhere. So.......Not being able to find one anywhere locally I ordered a Gilmour Brass High Flow Connector 13HF from eBay. It included FedEx shipping and will be here Friday. I had to install my original restricted flow shut-off, but it does at least hold water. But my shower is "slow".
Never again plastic for water valves. I did take the failed unit back to Lowes and they gave he a full value store credit so not all was lost.

Took my cabinet doors off today and glued all the face panels to the frame. Reason being when you open the doors you hear a vibrating sound and it sounds cheap it me. I did just 2 last year to see if I might have a problem with the frame separating from the movement of the face panel but to date all looks fine. Got this idea from a fellow camper we met at the RV Park 2 months ago. It dries clear so you don't see the glue.

Another thing I did today was insulate behind the panels and walls that are exposed to cold air from the outside access doors. We do late fall camping(November) and that door, wall and shelf above are just as cold as the outdoors. I used the 1" foam and glued it on with a hot melt glue gun.
Don't know if it will do any good but I got to work on the TT today and that makes me smile.

As it turns out. The Honda 2000i does drive the AC with no problems. I guess I was impatient when testing it as it appeared that when the compressor kicked on, the circuitry in the trailer was overloading and kicking the compressor back off. I was basing it on the sound of the generator. It sounded like it was under load for a moment then back to a standard rev. So, it does appear to drive the AC as well as a 32" flat screen, DVD player and a few lights. I haven't seen the overload light kick on so I guess its all within the range of the generator. Very pleased!

I believe your 154BH has a 8,000 BTU A/C which worked to your advantage....., with the standard 13,500 A/C units and a 2,000 watt genny all the right stars have to be in-line

Coming from a cabinet maker, you should not glue the panels in place they won't be able to expand and contract with the glue. Therefore causing cracking in the door. You would be better of using a Brad nailer and shoot a couple pin in the back to help with the vibration. Or a couple small beads of clear silicone on the back. At least with the silicone or pin nails the panel will be able to expand and contract .

How much did you say new cabinet doors cost?
