Starting on the list…

…the list of things to be fixed.

There are a number of small issues with the RV that need addressing.  Some need to be fixed quick, others are on a to-do-in-the-future list.  The first one I tackled was the plumbing. 

We had a rather nasty surprise on our first night in the RV on the way back from Texas a few weeks ago.  We turned on the water pump (which provides pressure to the shower and faucets when we’re not connected to city water) and found water gushing out of the bottom of the RV.  Needless to say, we turned it off and used city water instead.  We had an outside sprayer (like a sink spray nozel) installed in one of the bays and I suspected that was the culprit.

I crawled under there today and found out that the installer had used a bypass valve instead of a cutoff valve.  The bypass wasn’t hooked up to anything, so it sprayed all over the place the minute the water was turned on.  I simply capped off the bypass and all is now well. 🙂  The pump pressurizes the system, water stays where it’s supposed to and the outside sprayer works.

One job completed successfully!

The second job was just discovered today and it pretty much trumps everything else.  Our house batteries don’t seem to be charging.  More on that in a future post when I figure out what to do about it. :S
