My tech completed the re installation of the black water tank which had suffered the effects of a good Samaritan last week- Our fresh water inlet hose ruptured during the overnite hours and a good Samaritan turned off the ruptured hose- Unfortunately, he also turned on the black water flush valve- The tank overfilled and broke loose from the supporting brackets- The tank made a large bang when it slipped down which got me out of bed to assess the damage- Fortunately, the tank did not rupture and the tech was able to re install the tank- A good thing because replacement tanks must be ordered from the factory- It takes a minimum of 4 weeks to have a new tank manufactured [ there is no inventory of replacement tanks because there are too many tank shapes and outlets]- LESSION LEARNED- Do NOT leave flush hose hooked up- JMHO- DD

Noticed a small puddle of water under one of the low water drain hoses that comes off of the bottom of the grey water tank, removed plastic fitting some teflon tape reinstalled and done.

Replaced the BBQ that came with the Greyhawk. It wasn't a very good unit to start but lasted 3 years before I pulled the plug on it.

Replaced it with this from Walmart
Better Homes and Gardens Premium Portable Gas Grill - Walmart.com

I pulled the old regulator valve and was amazed to find it could replace the new valve on the new BBQ.

I also drilled out the rivets for the holder brackets and trimmed them down and installed them on the new unit so it still fits in the old holder that mounts to the side rack on the rig.

Haven't had a chance to cook anything yet but ran it to burn off any excess chemicals and it reached over 600F.

BBQ tomorrow nite.

Camper bob, I don't know if I am savey enough to post pictures here but I will try to write something up. It was a pretty simple project and not expensive. Being our Jay Flight had seen 12 years of service before our purchase, the area we covered was beyond cleaning well enough to suit me. It may take me a bit to post this but I will try.We purchased the materials we used at Menards but, other stores carry like items. If you Google "Faux Metal Back splash" you will probably get a better idea of the steps. Travel safe, Dave

We received a shipment today from Amazon of the Anderson leveling blocks (2 sets). There should be another shipment tomorrow with the Cipa strap on tow mirrors. Yay!

Hooked up sewer connection and flushed black tank several times after not flushing it for the past 3 months when dumping. I only dump when the tank is full so there wasn't a backup problem, but I do feel better after a real good flush.
