Front storage access pics

I opened up the front storage walls to locate a slow drip, turns out it was a loose connection at the fresh water inlet. Thought some might want to see what it looks like.

Looks like a mess!!! I'd be taking it all apart and making it straight and clean.

That's Jayco's "Get Acquainted with Your New RV" program. You get to dive into things like this, trace wires, tighten fittings, vacuum up debris.
I pulled that wall between the storage and the living room area and untangled, shortened and rerouted wiring. It seems funny to hear over and over about how all RV manufacturers save a penny here and there on things yet must waste miles of wire over a year.
Another odd bit is, no matter how thoroughly I vacuum in this area, more metal pieces and shavings appear. Eventually I'll reclaim some weight with this.

That's why they stuck that paneling in front of it.
It's a "no see" area.

Yeah I could have bought a nice steak dinner if I would have recycled all my Metal shavings.

I thought about redoing it, but heading into winter full timing it I figured I would wait.

We took a tour of the Keystone Montana production line last year. I found enough to screws, connectors, scrap lying on the floor to fix all the stuff wrong with my 6mth old Cougar. I asked the guy giving the tour if I could pick up some screws as I needed or would need them and he said sure take all you want. My wife got my 8yr old son a mason jar and he filled it.

I have this space above the generator and between the two propane tank doors. With the generator below it I wouldn't want to store anything super flammable but what about folding chairs? Barbecue pokers?

Be thankful you had an access door to the furnace and water lines on the front storage wall. We had no access to our hot water heater what so ever behind the front storage wall. Thank goodness the control module went out under warranty as the dealer had to cut an access hole to be able to pull the hot water heater out to replace the control board. Now if I have to get in there, I can remove the front carpeted panel and the plywood wall behind has an access hole already cut in!

I am still finding screws laying around in places you would never expect them to be. When we first picked up the TT, DW and I had to vacuum all the storage areas because of saw dust and wood chips, we also collected over 20 screws laying around.

Probably the same person that does the final clean up is the same person that puts all the stickers on the side of the TT, none are straight all are on angles.. needs new glasses

Haha. I noticed that to. Would it kill them to put stickers on level?
