No I haven't Bill, but that is something to look at. Thanks.

It took more time to remove the factory curtain than install the Shub Screen.

I had a guy last year tell me if I went to a 5-10 micron filter they wouldn't need changing as often. I politely told him I preferred cleaner water and that if I was concerned about filter changing/cost I would not use them at all.
I know what you mean regarding not wanting to lower your quality of water. I was referring to adding a higher micron filter before your sub micron filters only to protect them from what you are experiencing on Florida's Gulf coast as opposed to swapping with one of the filters currently in your system. In any case it sounds like you have a handle on it and have better point of use water quality than most in the whole RV park.

Bill, Ceramics are a good option however, due to their sub micron filtration capability, they would suffer a similar fate in the case of extreme sediment exposure. Of course the cost would be better overall because you could simple clean the ceramic filter upon load up as opposed to constantly having to replace the depth filter cartridge each and every time they load up. I'm just a firm believer in appropriate pre-filtration mainly due to the fact many of my former commercial and residential customers demanded longevity.

We have X-chocks, still have a little bounce when someone walks through the rig, but I believe it is due to how long our 32 is. Plan is to buy another set of scissor jacks for the center.

Not sure if that tv will tow the rig though! Lol

What led bulbs did you buy?
The JT's are heavy but there are 6 of them, I was hoping the X-Chocks would yield the same result.

The tv pulls just fine but we are only 10 minutes from the lake anyway. My truck on the other hand will not pull it (haven't tried but know it won't..lol). It's a Tundra with the 3.4L v-6.

The bulbs have to be the short ones or they won't fit, I ordered the 192's in LED but they were too long. These are what I ordered that fit perfectly:

Sanitized the water system and loaded up for our first full blown 'test camp'. Only going 7 miles down the road, which will be quite a bit easier to run home for anything we forgot vs our planned trip next weekend @ about 200 miles away.

For those that were discussing the vent covers, about a month ago (Post #3474), I installed the Fan-Tastic vent covers today, replacing the MaxxAir II over the bath fan, and putting one over the dining/kitchen area fan.

Having installed both, now, I can say that the Fan-Tastic product is far superior. The mounting is perfectly aligned, because it mounts to the existing flange holes on the fan. No drilling necessary. You just need to bring a screw-gun and a tube of caulk to the roof with you.
