Installed a new kitchen faucet. When I went to unwinterize last weekend, the old faucet was leaking heavily at the handle and wouldn't stop. Of course since BB loves flare connections had to come up with transitions to the new stuff, and also added in shutoff valves. No clue why there were none to begin with, that's a pet peeve of mine.

Default Kohler 12.5 KW Genset with Yanmar Diesel Coolant Thermostat replacement.

This past winter while Boon-docking in Ann Arbor at the Big House for the Michigan vs. Michigan State football game. I was a block down the street eating dinner and having a beverage when my generator cooling fan belt broke, the Yanmar overheated, the emergency shut off worked and shut the engine down. Unfortunately, the thermostat was baked in the process and hasn't worked since.

Fast forward to this week, I replaced the thermostat in the Yanmar Diesel Engine for the Genset. Went to the local Yanmar dealer in town and of course it was not a stocked item. They ordered from Yanmar and it arrived the next day. Yanmar part number 129155-49801 price $27.80 plus tax and freight cost. Yes, that is the thermostat i removed in the photo.

Once I replaced the thermostat and gasket, I ran the generator for 30 mins to ensure the temperature remained steady.

Just replaced the old 4 foot baffled muffler with a straight thru 2 ft MAGNAFLOW. The original was full of soot as well.

I saw increased performance when I replaced my soot-filled stock muffler with a Magnaflow. Hope you do as well. Some have even deleted the muffler all together.

When we bought the SP from Chip he had removed the side cover for the rear CRT TV. Since it now has a flat screen there is a very handy shelf above the drawers. However with the panel removed it looked unfinished. I took the original panel to a counter top place I use and they cut out an opening and trimmed it with laminate. It looks much better and allows access to the shelf.

I'm replacing all the sewer dump line and valves. We hit a 'gator on the last trip back from Atlanta last year and did some damage to the line an both valves. I patched it up so we could live in it while we rehabbed the new (to us) house. We moved in the house last week so now I'm working on the bus! LOL!



I'm replacing everything from the tanks on. Using cable operated Valterra valves. got rid of the air operated ones. I hate having to air up to dump the tanks. Also, the Valterra ones are less expensive and easier to replace. Replacing the macerator pump too.
