the anode did not need replacing. Also today I had to replace another string in one of our day/night shades. I have replaced all the strings at least once in all the shades and some twice. They get a lot of use.
I have enough string to replace all the strings for as long as I own this RV. The other day I did the oil change that came due while on our trip last summer. Since I run synthetic I wasn’t worried that I went a little over my normal 3000 miles. The next item on the list is to fix the water leak at the water heater bypass valve. It is not bad, just a slow drip but is annoying. I wanted to get all this stuff done before we head over to California in a little over a week.
