Today I replaced the toilet flush valve. A couple of times the old one didn't close all the way and the water kept trickling into the bowl, filling it up. Luckily, I caught it both times before the thing overflowed onto the floor.

The job wasn't that bad. I shut off the water and held down the flush pedal to relieve the pressure. Then, removed the water line from the valve. Next, removed toilet and place it in the tub. Removed seal at base of toilet (new seal came with valve kit). Then removed old valve, installed new one and fitted new gasket in position.

Next, after cleaning up the floor, I positioned the toilet back over the flange bolts and re-attached the water line fitting. Then I carefully tightened down the flange bolt nuts, turned on the water and all was well. No more leakage. Should be good for another couple years.

The original lasted 2-1/2 years before it started leaking, so I'll probably throw a new one in every couple of years as regular preventative maintenance.

I bought a new shank for my WDH, my trailer has the electric power jack on the front, and currently I cannot open my tailgate, as it hits the top of the power jack. The new shank is 4" longer and will allow for the tailgate to open while the trailer is coupled.

This will allow for our dog to be loaded in and out of the back of the truck when the trailer is attached, much easier than lifting over the edge of the truck or tailgate.

Mounted a new sewer hose storage container on my TT made out of a 5" x 5" x 8ft.lg. plastic fence post...., my 4" x 4" bumper housing was just a little to snug for the new sewer hose. Mounted the new plastic housing below the existing bumper housing with a couple of modified square bend U-bolts.

What Did You Do To Your Jayco TODAY?

Finally installed my LED awning lights! Installation was a few months in the making as I mulled over how to do it. I settled on a different track than most people have taken and decided to install the LED control box in the awning motor housing (after weather proofing it of course) and running power to the control box from the camper switch panel inside the front door and through the wall where the awning power goes. I know at least one other person tried to get power this way but couldn't due to issues pulling wire through the wall and ceiling. Thank God my awning power wires were free so I could use one to fish the power for the LEDs. It ended up being a tight squeeze to fish two more 14 gauge wires, but I managed to pull them through. Success!!!
