  1. Not strictly about storage but more about space-efficiency. And, besides, I started this thread and it has been roughtly since we were talking about "shower beers" since it has been offtopic. 😜 So when I was full-timing I never really did come up with a way to handle dish drying that satisified my. I ended up stacking 2 drying mats on top of the the open area next to the sink with a bit of overlap over the stove cover. 2 mats because it helped soak up any wetness and keep the counter + stove from getting anything beyond moist and *not* a catch tray because I didn't find one that would store well. Today while watching a video on re-seasoning cast iron I stumbled across a video where I spotted this.... : https://www.amazon.com/LLygezze-Large-Stainless-Drying-Kitchen/dp/B01HRJ5HI6/ref=sr_1_5 There are similar work-alikes on the site. I ordered one for my kitchen though I will definitely take in on trips with the trailer too to see how this compares.
  2. Ha ha! No dumb questions. For sure. It's one of the first things I looked at when I wasn't getting the expected results. You know what I didn't check though? If the hose or the filter on the inlet port somehow clogged after getting enough fluid to flush the cold in the kitchen. I will have to check that when I get back out there today. I can't imagine how it could have since the hose is quite short and was inserted directly into a fresh A/F bottle but...
  3. That's the interesting part. It went down to about half of the jug and that's when I got the cold water winterized in the kitchen. Nothing else has moved the line in the jug. I'm rather flummoxed. I'm considering just taking the trailer to low-elevation NV for the winter(It's not far...lol).
  4. Yes, sir. I actually never changed it back after sterlizing the system a couple of days ago.
  5. I've been through the winterization YouTube video at least a dozen times and so far I've only been able to get any anti-freeze into kitchen sink via cold water. I never get any pink via kitchen hot water and nothing at all through the bathroom sink or the outside shower. I thought perhaps the faucets were aerating the water in such a way that it was not apparent that anti-freeze was coming in so I captured the water into a cup to look for color and still nothing. I get almost no pressure to the faucets even if I let the pump run for well over 2 minutes. Thoughts?
  6. I have half a mind to just slap industrial-grade velcro on everything since I have it handy. Gotta sanitize and winterize this weekend first. Gonna get cold this week.
  7. There's not a lot of top-clearance between, for instance, the water pump and the hull. I liked the metal plate idea due to it being thin. Kind of a bummer that this is even a problem. I'll have to think about this a bit...
  8. Do you by any chance have a link to the Starboard? When I do a search I get back a surf board brand.
  9. Does anyone know how those platforms are attached to the trailer? I just went out to measure thickness and it certainly seems like they are glued/epoxied on. Might have to come up with something other than ripping them out and installing marine-grade plywood. Perhaps a metal plate as shown above which it then itself epoxied to the MDF-like thing that's already in place.
  10. It seems like RV solutions always end up at marine-grade just as old motorcycle solutions always end up at aircraft-grade. 😉 Thanks for the suggestion.
  11. I had to replace the water pump and I've been in and out of few other panels and whatever MDF-like material the factory uses for mounting the water pump and various electrical gear doesn't hold up to vibration and/or moisture. I don't think there's a single screw for those items which has actually held the equipment in place over the course of the last 2 years. There's not a lot space in these areas to drill new holes into the existing mounting platforms and so I'm looking for something more robust, water-proof, and better able to hold a wood screw than the OEM materials so that I can just replace the mounting platforms completely. Anyone have any suggestions? I'll take some pictures later today to give you an idea but the platforms are currently made of MDF-like pseudo-wood which doesn't hold a screw and the hole just turned into a gray powdery crater in the platform.
  12. I'll check and see if I have any of the packaging from when I picked mine up. I ended up just taking one into the local NAPA and eye-balling it.
  13. Thanks, John. I've read a lot of your posts and I know you put a lot of thought into this stuff. Also, I'm so glad you mentioned the foam. I was really struggling to get them all in the machine. I'm 200 lbs and they just won't compress! (That's a joke!)
  14. Hey, folks. I'm prepping my '19 EII for sale. What does everyone advise for a nice thorough clean of the cloth upholstery? I've cleaned it pretty regularly with a hand-held steam cleaner/vacuum and special upholstery soap but I'd like to give a very thorough bath before selling. Dry clean, tub with upholstery soap and hand wash, clothes washer on gentle? I looked at the manual and not much there. Also looked at other RVs and they mostly mention "professional cleaning" which I take to mean some kind of dry clean. Maybe I stink at the forum seach but I didn't find anything here though I expected I would. Thx!
  15. I've been using the pinhole reset about once a month. But always because BT has stopped working. I should try it the next time I get these audio drops and see if it changes anything. Thanks for the idea.
