It was laundry time and also time to use/replace the water in my fresh water tank. I like to keep this tank full so I'm prepared when the park has a water main break and the water is off. So I switched to internal water, washed all of the dirty clothes, took a couple of showers over a couple of days and just generally used a lot of water. Then filled the tank back up when it was close to empty. Replaced the incoming fresh water filter with a new one and switched back to shore water. All is well again and I'm ready for the next water crisis in the park which happened 11 times last summer.

Roof maintenance

Tried ProTec Rubber Roof Care System for the first time to clean and UV-protect the roof...which is always a big job.

Original batteries were leaking. What a mess. Cleaned out battery box compartment and installed new sealed AGM 12 volt batteries.

Replaced the manual crank tongue jack with an electric power tongue jack, new tires all the way around including the spare. I need to install a battery disconnect switch but have been debating where to locate it until I saw mark.nowak's install in the battery box lid.

Checked out everything this morning for upcoming trip next weekend to Top Sail. One of the light switches in the bathroom no longer toggling! Thank goodness for Amazon Prime. Ordered a new switch and had it delivered about 30 mins ago! I know what I'll be doing tomorrow morning before it gets too hot!!

The new one is 6 inches longer than the original one so it will light up more of the counter area, it has a multi level dimmer controlled by a switch on the fixture and it is LED. Hopefully a quality LED so I don't have to do this again anytime soon.
My new LED fixture arrived late yesterday and I installed it immediately. What am amazing difference. No more F8T5's for me. This fixture is made by Thin-Lite, but they don't make it easy to find. Their catalog number is DIST-LED616P. It is dimmable and the attached picture is at about half brightness. On high it is "very bright". Great Product so far.
