Installing valves




Sealed





I mess up the positioning of the faucet oh well it’s going to be pressurized anyway, shouldn’t impacting the water flow too at all.



Pressure gauge, I’m planning to have the pressure at 40 PSI.

Pilot the angle before mate all PVCs











The system is holding at least 3 gallons, enough for quick showers 2 or 3 and washing dishes etc.

My plan is to build the system that allow me to add expansion tank in the future.

Painting



It’s so darn hot here in Houston. I’m gonna take couple hours break and let the paint dry.

Very cool! I had an idea to do the same thing and run a small pump on a thermostat switch and lines to my unused transmission cooler on the radiator to get hot water as well.

Nice diy mod!!

fyi...not sure if you do any snow camping or not...but freezing temps. will turn your water supply into a block of ice.
One of the fellas that I wheel with installed a small submersible heater in his shower water tubes. It doesn't make much difference when the temps. get into the twenties, and below.

Cheers

Finally got the ladder!



Unboxing



Installed



Done!!


I really like it, very sturdy and it is a lot easier for me to get up there.

I’m a big guy and trying to pull myself up on the tire isn’t the best option. This is one of my favorite mods so far.

So... do you have a part number or where to get it?

The window surround moulding is easily removable with a plastic trim removal tool. The moulding itself is attached with plastic clips that connect the moulding to the body. There are five or so behind the side pieces and 8-10 behind the top piece. Chances are the clips will be brittle from age and many will break when the trim is removed, so plan on finding some replacements.

I think $73 is a fair price for new trim, I payed about $30 for junkyard trim.

Good luck.
I am looking for the part number for the windshield clips upper body-side. I got the moulding with clips in it. However, the body clips are brittle and I want to replace it.

Attaching the pic. Thanks.
