We passed a giant hurdle this past weekend.
For those of you that RV, you understand. For the rest of you – tanks that hold what they are supposed to hold are THE most important aspect of a camper.
Except for tires. But those will come soon.
The black tank, the gray tank, the water heater, and the freshwater tank are now installed and have been tested. No leaks!
Hubs used residential PEX to create a complicated system of valves that can be shut off easily if any plumbing fixture begins to leak in the future and will still allow the other fixtures to be used. Oldest will be able to walk into any home improvement store and get new parts and install them in minutes. All the lines can be drained for winterizing the trailer when not in use. PEX won’t freeze and burst but Hubs mounted it to the underside of the future bed to keep it in the heated interior.
We also installed the toilet. Never has flushing brought me so much joy.
There might or might not have been a fifteen-minute period where the three of us stood around the kitchen sink turning the faucet on and off.
Just because we could.
I also finished filling the hundreds of holes in the wood walls this weekend and completed the priming of the walls and cabinets.
The only complication? We decided to change the floorplan of the kitchen and bedroom.
And by we I mean me.
I know. I know. But, as I reminded Hubs and Oldest when they rolled their eyes at my idea, we haven’t started building the furniture yet. So it’ll be easy.
