We had a bit of snow yesterday morning, and later on I heard a faint "drip -- drip -- drip". I thought a faucet wasn't quite shut off, but when I checked it out I saw that water was dripping from the edge of the skylight over the tub (best place for a roof leak by far!). I assumed I'd find that the sealant was cracking but instead saw that the outer section of the skylight was broken! There was a 4" crack on the flat rim that lies against the roof.

Luckily I had some self-leveling sealant on hand. I must've used half of the tube on that little crack, so I'm pretty sure it won't leak again.

I may regret having done all of this today, but I was finally able to get my 5W from the storage lot. Upon getting home I greased the wheel bearings and then washed the roof. Still on a high from having my RV in the driveway I went ahead and washed/waxed the sidewalls. Whew! I'm gonna need a massage and a whirlpool tomorrow. Pass the aspirin, please!

Today was a busy day. I finally moved everything that I moved out of the old trailer in January into the new TT. I installed my maxxair vent, and a keyless entry. I highly recommend the keyless...works great and very easy to install!Click image for larger version

Perhaps they are and the photo viewer on your computer is auto rotating them? Just a guess....

Water System is marinating 50PPM bleach water...................cant get the %^&$#**&#@ propane system purged (I think my regulator went bad over the winter)

......and I made this quick mount for my new water system. This way I can change the filter with resting anything in the dirt - and hopefully eliminate a lot of the dirt splash from the rain as well. SSSHWEEEEEET...

Always had problems with the Kitchen Holding tank dump valve, it has always been hard to operate and does not close all the way.

Had a Jayco Dealer look at it when they were doing a slide adjustment.
They said nothing was wrong and Jayco would not pay them under warranty to take it off and look at it.

Finally had some time today here in Texas with a nice concrete pad, so I took the valve off to inspect it.
What I found was what looked like large piece of plastic material from the manufacturing process that was stuck in the valve.
Cleaned it out, checked the valve for other debris, now the valve works fine.

Not a fun job, that is why I have been putting off.
