Well I don't know if drinking beer and doing roof is a good combination bill lol .... As for me just got the two middle stabilizers installed on mine and am picking up water filter,90 degree hose connector, and pressure regulator, then have to install pump silencer kit .... Trying to get ready for the first time we will be somewhere with full hookups, I have never had city water connected to ours yet hope it doesn't leak

I had removed the strut piston from the door, was driving me nuts. But the wind would sometimes grab the door, I had an elastic strap to hold the door, and it would bang.

Added a rubber bumper to the door, problem fixed.

Will update with my decision.

But first, I need to open a new beer...
Bill, don't forget to take a chair up with you, have a seat do a scrub take a sip and call it done.

By the way, here's the one I installed. It was a perfect fit with no modification to the holes or PEX tubing. Pfister Pfirst Series 4 in. Centerset 1-Handle Bathroom Faucet in Polished Chrome-G1427000 - The Home Depot

Update: Went ahead and scrubbed the roof clean. Paintinfool3, I limited my beer intake while doing the roof. Tunce-man, good idea about the chair, but I did it all standing on my ladder. If I fall to the ground, I'd rather fall from ladder height than roof top height.

After the roof, I got out my bucket and Maguires wash/wax soap and washed the all the tin on the trailer sides/front/back. More beer was flowing once my feet were firmly on the ground.

After washing the TT, I dumped the fresh water tanks and refilled them with fresh, chlorinated city water. I try to do that every month or so to make sure critters don't grow.

After filling the tanks, put away clean clothes (went to laundromat this AM), went to Fred Meyer and bought some fried chicken (and more beer, Haha!).

And now it's time to relax. I'm beat!

Made a stove cover with ideas from this forum and a bamboo cutting board DW had. The "chair rail" vinyl border was looking pretty shabby after 13 years so, I removed it at the entry way. Also TRIED to adjust entry door. Looks as if it had been pried open at sometime. Fit is much better now but still not perfect. If I get up enough nerve, I may try more "adjustment" in the future !!!LOL!! DW put up a new clock with thermometer and hygrometer. I like !
