and such tomorrow. Need to work on the 5th wheel camper tomorrow. Water heater has a leak at the back where the water lines go into it. They are plastic and it got left on in the electric mode a year or so ago at Bear camp. It got hot enough to deform the plastic. Due to my problems last year I wasn't able to get it fixed. I believe I have a fix for it that woun't take very long but I have to remove it to do so. I also have a problem with the slideout pump not retracting the the slideout. I have called the pump company and they sent me some info on what to do without having to replace the whole unit. Will tackle that after the water heater, Wife says we can camp without having the sldeout out. I agree. I need to seal al the seams and check the rubber roof again this year. had some leaking and water damage that we got stopped last year, just want to make sure it is not leaking again this year. Put new tires on it two years ago so I think they are good to go. Sometime this year I will need to grease the wheel bearing but that woun't take long. Will need new brakes next year.   Can't complain we have owned it for 14 yrs. (second owner) and it has served us well.    Need to get this done so I can get the tractors ready for use here in a few weeks.    Thanks.

Roger.

Good luck on your repairs.
Have you ever used Sharkbite connectors?

Good clean cuts, no jagged edges inside or out... No problems anytime I've used them.

Those sharkbite connectors are great to use. A bit pricey tho, but so easy.

Seems like campers are a lot of work. My friend bought a 37 foot toy hauler camper 5th wheel and he is constantly fixing water lines and such. He does live in it awhile we are stationed in WV for work.
