Riverton, Utah High 88 Low 55
I've had a project that has been waiting on me since we went to Panguitch. While we were there we noticed that every time we used the kitchen sink, we could see water coming out from underneath the fifth wheel. I almost decided to see what the problem was while we were there, but the burrs in our spot were bad enough that I decided to wait until we got back to Riverton. Now I'm glad I waited.
Meanwhile it has been so hot that I really didn't want to work outside at all. It finally cooled off enough, and I'm all caught up with quilting Cindy's quilts, so I decided to tear into the under-belly cover and see what was going on.
It was a lot of work getting the bottom cover off with out tearing it, which would be hard to do anyway, but I had to cut around some hydraulic lines and a brake line.
I was hoping for an easy fix, but no such luck. after I got the cover down, I could see some cracks in the tank, which meant take it out. There are sensor wires and I knew the intake pipe had to be disconnected, but I didn't know about the vent, which gave me fits getting to it so I could cut the elbow out of the top enough to get it down. This later made for a lot rougher time putting the tank back, but I solved that problem by using plumber's couplings which use hose clamps around a stainless band around the rubber coupling (in case it ever need to come out again).
