It's crazy cold here in Danville because winter swept in overnight. The current temperatures outside are 24° and the wind is blowing about 20 mph so I'm figuring windchill in the single digits. Much too cold to be working outside unless it's an emergency so I'm staying inside to work on our new fresh water tank.
Ian provided the motivation to abandon the scummy internal slimey water tank that was almost impossible to clean. Using Ian's instructions
, I have used a five gallon cooler that we already had but weren't using and modified the valve to include the brass fitting that'll allow a connection to the external water supply line on the side of Ziggy.
With Dale's help from Central Kentucky Hardware
and Ian's advice (thanx again, Ian) I was able to complete the modifications and have a posted picture of our "leak check" for you below. It'll be a while before we get to test this out in the field but this project is done. What's next?...
