We went through this with our Greyhawk 29mv. I learned that those windows have a "ceramic frit" around the edge which protects the adhesive from deteriorating in UV light, so while a local shop...

Another thing with respect to the shower is that when the hose is filled with water it weighs more than the screws can hold on a bumpy ride, so just leaving it on the floor helps prevent the holder...

I fill the hole with Gorilla Glue, let it cure overnight and then drill a small pilot hole in the glue. It allows me to use the original screws in the original location and has held up well.

If you think grammer is bad, try telling pilots that your plane is in a hanger. :)

I'm guessing that accidentally leaving the on-demand hot water heater switch on is no big deal, since there should never be any flow (anti-freeze or "air") sufficient to start the burner?

You hook it up through fresh water fill, and just open the faucets to let air replace the water.

Compared to repairing plumbing an air compressor and pressure regulator is a good investment. Plus...

My spin is that there is always some water left behind, and some condensation of air in the lines as ambient temps drop. If that's enough water to collect in a low point then you do risk pipe...

I did nearly the exact same in our 29mv, also adding a toggle switch to the 12v line to disconnect it when not in use. I just put the Jetpack inside the cabinet for best wifi reception within the MH.

I do question how much water gets lost by "siphoning" rather than simply spilling out through the tubes with movement. After all, once air enters a siphon tube the siphoning action stops. On level...
