Figured It Out



Doing The Plumbing

5am - When I woke up this morning and thought about Scampy's propane plumbing, how to do it just popped into my head!
  • Buy copper tubing 5 feet long
  • In the middle of this tubing, install the brass tee
  • Using a tube cutter, make a clean cut on the existing tubing at a convenient place to the right and left of where the brass tee will be installed 
  • Plumb the ends of the tube with the new tee into the existing propane line
That's it! 

7pm - Bought everything!
Everything needed was bought at Home Depot. Didn't need too much:
  • [1] roll 3/8" copper tube
  • [2] 3/8  x 3/8 compression unions
That's it! All that is necessary now is to install this stuff. Was doing some errands this afternoon or I would finished the job today.

No rush. Tomorrow is a good "project finishing day!"


11pm - Tripping with Baby Boid
Scampy and I are getting sooooo close to being ready for our BIG trip! Excitement is mounting! 😛

We were thinking about not taking Baby Boid on the camping trip to
San Diego. But Baby Boid gets such a kick out of tripping in Little Honda's passenger seat, that we just could NOT say, "No" to him.

We are going to set-up Boid's cage so that he can be high up. Boid loves it when the view is really good!

  2. It is best to use Double Flares on propane fittings, as I describe in this post http://popupbackpacker.com/our-trailers/2006-fleetwood-niagara/niagara-replacement-refrigerator/

    1. Hi Mister Ed,

      I will answer, in this way:

      If I were your English teacher in school, I would mark your papers:

      Ed,
      Rewrite this paper and use half as many words.

      Respectfully,
      Your Teacher

  4. Respectfully. I think George was referring to proofreading for spelling and punctuation. It is very difficult to read your comments when periods are practically nonexistent.

    Go with baby aspirin a light does anyways?? Hard to make sense.

    1. Hi Rose,

      Me thinks that Mister Ed does NOT proofread. If he did proofread, I would be able to understand ALL of his comments. Not just some of his comments. 🙄

      [1] 81mg aspirin per day, is what I'm taking now.
