chip of the old block

Recommended Posts

i Just came home to north Georgia from Destin Florida and when I was preparing to winterize the trailer again (third)

 

as I was opening the hatch where the water controls are I found this “brick” . Apparently it had “moved” from its spot which I assumed was under the bed.  I emailed Jason today and he said that the block is supposed to be under the floor It isn’t secured as it must be removable if there is a need to access or service the tanks. If it is sliding under the floor it’s because it has too much clearance and moving around freely could damage the water lines. He suggested that I should put a shim to make it a tighter fit. fYI

Mark  it was banging around because it was not secured to anything as I mentioned  it is pretty heavy too. It’s a brace for what I believe is the side of the bed as it fits underneath the outer side of the twin bed.

 

The advise was and I quote “it will probably require a shim to make a tighter fit “. So I guess I will put sone wood shims and hope it doesn’t be some loose again

NO wood shims, you want to use non-rotting materials that can't trap water.

 

Good luck.

You can get plastic shims that are used to level fountains and bird baths. I think I got mine at Home Depot. Mike

I've seen those blocks floating around at the factory and always wondered if they were temporary supports for something or permanent.  I guess they're permanent.  Or not.

If anybody inspects theirs and also finds cigarette butts and empty beer cans in the maintenance spaces, please don’t tell me. Rrrrr

How about drugs or stolen weapons? Those might be OK....

As long as they are older S&W and Colt…I’ll take ’em. HOPEFULLY no drugs…jeez John, you’re helping me out here with my quality control hang-ups. ????

 

It was the rats running around down there that got me.... Poop everywhere...

 

I hate rats

 

 

Just kidding :)


Happy Camping,
