RE: Water line burst

Thanks for so many helpful responses. We were lucky that it was a T fitting that came apart in the water bay. Not easy to get at, but at least it wasn't inside the walls or in the slide. Fixed at home in the driveway in about 5 hours (We work slow). While apart, we found another fitting that was leaking. And, the 110v outlet in the water bay (domb to install one there) was sealed on the front, but the box was not sealed at the back. All fixed now. I ordered a $50 Camco regulator with a built in gauge. Not sure if that qualifies as a "good" regulator, but the next better at Lowes was oversized, $100 plus gauge and fittings. The extra cost and install time didn't look like a good way to go.

Water line burst

We never use those little brass water pressure regulators. They cut to water flow too much. Been RVing for 20 years and never had a problem. This week when I hooked up, I noticed that we had "really good pressure", but I didn't give it a second thought. When we got back to the RV today, there was no water. Checked the valve and found that (a) someone had turned off our water, and (b) water was pouring out of the RV's water bay once we turned the water back on. So...no water. The upside is that the break appears to be in the water bay, so with any luck there is no water damage. But, finding and fixing the break could be a challenge. We can still get "emergency water" by running the pump, but half the water dumps out into the water bay while the pump is running. We will be home in a few days and can do the repairs then. Going forward, what is the best option: a) Continue without the regulator and pay more attention when pressure is high. After all, it worked for 20 years. b) Fill the tank with campground water and then only use the water pump. I hate putting "strange" water into the fresh water tank. c) Use the regulator/campground water for most things and then boost the pressure with the pump when taking showers. What are your thoughts on this? Paul

RE: Add in Cabinets

We set up an enclosed trailer for a side by side and dirt bikes. We needed storage for helmets and other gear. We used plastic cabinets from Lowes and added 1/2" plywood tops to make a light duty work bench. It worker very well.

RE: Why have I dealt with this charger for 13 years?

"I have not seen anything like that, with a few different brand converters so far" Pretty easy to find examples. A quick search revealed a Diehard that claims 1150 peak amps @ 12V!

RE: Why have I dealt with this charger for 13 years?

Mordicai81 has a good suggestion. Keep in mind that oem converter is only as good as needed to get you to buy and make it through the warranty year. And, if you are usually using hookups it will be fine. If you are off grid, you need the charge time to be useful. A good 60 amp charger should run on your 2000i Honda. Bring the "good" charger and gen when you need, and use the built in converter when you have hookups. But, be careful shopping for a charger, they advertise peek amps that are unrealistic. Some say 80 amps and are really only 20.
