I thought it was closer to 7 weeks!

OK, I'm now looking to Dave when I have statute of limitations issues. Repairs limitation is three camping trips without a repair or mod. Redneck jokes is 7 weeks. Got it!

Even so, they run concurrently. So it's 7 weeks from the last one. Evil or Very Mad

That could depend upon who the judge is. He could run them consectively. Shocked

That's why I'm letting Dave be the judge!!! Instead of you, Tim!!!!

Don't forget, our bantering started when you "called the cops" on me a couple of years ago over at ETNCC.

OK, what it a water heater bypass, and will I need one on my PUP when I put in the water heater.

I've decided to just put the pink stuff in in the winter, and flush it out good in the spring.

Here's a link to my water heater on the Manufacturer's site: http://www.americanwaterheater.com/products/pdf/lpe70.pdf

and this is the owner's manual
http://www.americanwaterheater.com/support/manuals/tiny-titan.pdf

Now they are here if I lose the printed ones.

New and Improved Shower Plan

Post  Richard on Sat Feb 06, 2010 3:25 pm

I've found a much simpler shower plan. Photos are here.
http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/139603881agYkwF
The guy even has a viking camper (not exactly like mine, but close) and an earlier model of my same water heater. He hooked his heater up temporary, but Mine will be mounted and plumbed inside the cabinet, as I have no hesitation about putting holes in the PUP. I'll also likely use a laundry sink or a "Muck Bucket" to catch the water. Figuring out the right "shower pan" and drain through the floor will be the hardest part. I like this guy's idea for a drain hole with a cover. I love the idea of just having it where the table goes, and of using it for privacy when using the portapotty. I'll still do the PVC in the fashion that allows it to slide into itself and store smaller. Ideally the whole curtain, rod, shower head/tube will fit into my shower pan for easy transport.

I didn't call the cops on you, it was Chuck. You then went on talking about the nice shiney bracelets you got. Mad

Yeah, seems like it was Chuck.

I also got a free ride in the back of a nice car, and a room at this big (though shabby) hotel. They even offered to let me use the phone to call someone. They introduced me to their friend the judge, it was quite an exciting night.

I was going to go and check the back posts but figured it would take to long, so I'll say it was Chuck that called the law on you Rolling Eyes

Thread type for sewing the Vinyl Canvas?

Post  Richard on Tue Feb 09, 2010 7:40 pm

Is there a special thread I should use for sewing the vinyl seams that are starting to come out? I've got two corners that are leaking a bit where the thread is missing from the bunk corner pushing against it. I have a pack of upholstery needles and some nylon thread that is pretty strong. Still, I don't want to have to do the job twice.

I also have to find my "seam sealer" to put on the seam after I sew it up.

Richard I used fishing line and 100% cotton outdoor thread it was $12 a spin. You can use the nylon but i would get the outdoor spin. This is used for out door furniture covers. You can find it at Walmart and or my favorite JoAnns.
Good luck with that. I went through a lot of needles my hand and using the sewing machine.

I'm hoping to be done way before then, but thanks Dar. It's only about a five inch seam that's loose in two corners. I'll get teh thread from walmart and sew it with my upholstery needles by hand.

I found a plastic tool tote at Home Depot (also known as Richard's "Camping World" wannabe) that looks like it will work perfectly for the shower pan/tub, and it was less than $7.00. I've cut a hole in the floor and cut down the height of the tool tote to fit under the fold-down sink when installed and popped down. Now if I've got the drain in, and it doesn't start leaking, I'm in business. I'll use bigger pipe for the drain, and just put the smaller pipe down in it. I'll add photos when I'm done. To cover the hole in the floor when the shower is not in use, I put a cover for a round electric outlet on the floor, with just one screw. It lays really flat and covers the hole pretty tightly when closed.

I've pretty much got it figured out, It didn't fit where I first planned to put it (under the dinette seat) but I've got it in the cabinet under the sink area. it sure does eat up a lot of that cabinet, though. I haven't worked through the exact plumbing scheme, but I have a good idea. I just have to make sure I'll be able to readily access it to winterize.

Glad to hear that you are working the problem out. Maybe if you drew a diagram you could figure out how to do the plumbing.
