First official trip in our new Hurricane 35m. I finally found the water heater bypass which is behind the water heater in the inside. Still canít get any water out of the faucet on the kitchen sink. I am guessing there is a valve somewhere but I have searched and canít find it. Any ideas?

Try unscrewing the aerator on the end of the faucet to see if itís clogged with newness debris.

Greatly improved driving, especially in crosswind conditions. We normally tow a 6000# enclosed, double axle race car trailer, and weíre getting blown around a bit. I recently towed from CA to Austin, TX for a race and those winds in the TX hill country were no fun. No problem now.

Also insulated the dog house and under the passenger and driver areas with RattleTrap, which really reduced engine noise transmitting into the cockpit.

Nice job...keep up the good work!!!!

shut the water off an pull the hot water faucet valve and make sure no debris is preventing water from getting to the faucet - junk in the line could be blocking the valve. You never know how the line was pulled, it you don't want to do that, unscrew the feed line from the faucet under the sink and pump have some one turn thee pump on for a minute - if you have water in the hot line, it's the faucet or valve. just be ready for water with a bucket when they hit the pump switch.

Shower Mizer Water Recirculation System

After boondocking several times in Albuquerque, NM at the Balloon Fiesta, we decided to install the ShowerMizer!! Phishing the additional water line was a real booger bear but I got it done and the system works as advertised. We no longer have to collect water in a pitcher or bucket in the shower stall waiting for the hot water to come on. Just flip the switch and the water from the fresh water tank is recirculated instead of going down the drain.
