wow, Dino, that's a pretty good dumping. How did "Windy" fare through the storm? You have her covered, right?

The day I went to pick our RV up for the first time, it snowed 5 inches for the drive home. Not something I wanted, but at least I know she's sea-worthy!
Got us home safely.

Yes, Windy was covered, as a matter of fact, she is getting her awning replaced as we speak!

Wait...did I miss something? What's up with your awning?

The elbow on the right side of our awning broke off and damn near hit me on the head when I was deploying the awning a few months ago. We have an extended warranty plan and the awning is covered. We just have to pay the deductible and that is that!!! I think the awning was broken when we got the RV it just took this long for it to finally snap and fall off.

Glad to hear that this didn't happen while you were out in the middle of nowhere. That's the same arm we had an issue with while driving across New Mexico a couple months ago. Guess I should get up on a ladder and check for any stress fractures.

Have a blessed and merry Christmas, everyone!

UPDATE: Windy is back home. The arms on the outside awning were replaced and were covered on the extended warranty program we have! Happy camper here!!

Valterra Black Universal Gravity Fill Inlet & Lockable Hatch (RV Fresh Water)

My latest modification is complete! I installed the Valterra Black Universal Gravity Fill Inlet & Lockable Hatch (RV Fresh Water). You cannot put a square peg in a round hole so I had to modify the opening of the original gravity fill so that the new hatch could fit. I used a jigsaw to cut the rectangular opening. It wasn't that hard. Make sure you use Plummer's putty and clear silicon to properly seal the new hatch!!

Don't worry about it. I have covered mistakes with 1/8" polished aluminum and stainless steel plates, or bolts and washers. They look like they ought to be there. Use 3M-5200 to seal out the water.

I reused the original soundproofing after reinstalling it and added 1 sheet of dynamat to the doghouse. Put a second sheet on the bottom of the floor area.

YMMV

Hi Dave! Go ahead and get it done. Make a template of the new hatch opening and you will see that you will not have to cut as much as you would think. I did not mention this earlier but I also used painter's tape around the opening to protect the fiberglass when I made those cuts!!
