Put a fresh pail of Damp Rid in it. Stuck my head in the camper and seen no signs or smells of mice.

I swapped out the stock incandescent tail lights for LED ones from Optronics. They're exactly as wide and only a little shorter. They still cover the original drill holes. As a reminder to everyone. When you're sealing new lights to your camper, do not use sealant on the bottom of the lamp bodies. If water gets behind them somehow (and it will eventually) it needs somewhere to go. Preferably not inside your camper.

I also built and installed a little folding table by the fold out couch. About 12" x 12". Perfect for a cup of coffee while you're reading.

I had unhooked the battery on the TT but instead of bringing it into the shop I left it in the TT and undoubtedly either old age or the weather killed a cell in the battery. Going to get a new one tomorrow at Rural King ($69.99 type 24 Deep Cycle) best price around for batteries and other items.

I replaced the toilet flush seal and base seal. Water in the bowl would slowly just lead down into the tank. Hopefully I'll be all set now.

.........Opened the Pup to check how it held up over the winter - no "observed" water; or other visible issues. Drained the antifreeze; greased the whiffle tree; Lubed the axle bearings; replaced the cracked and VERY brittle fresh water fill tube; replaced the Group 31 battery I "somehow" ran dry over the winter...while on a good NOCO smart charger!!; Installed a digital thermostat; Replaced the LP regulator with an auto change over type in an effort to repair my "failed furnace" issue.....the HP regulator on the Niagara made that interesting work.....I decided it was easier to leave the HP regulator tee'd off the primary tank to avoid a "Frankenstein" plumbing nightmare. Will have to wait for a nice day to open it back up and test the furnace and run fresh water through the system and check for leaks. Waiting for the campgrounds to open back up here in the MD/PA area.....Getting anxious!!

Was this on a Thetford toilet? Did this solve your problem? I'm having the same issue with water in the bowl slowly leaking in my Thetford toilet/shower combo.

Worked great. But Mine's a free standing porcelain top toilet.
There's a video on youtube showing the replacement procedure. You need to remove the toilet from the floor (It makes the replacement way easier).
Here's the seal kit I bought. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005G20GOC

Installed the new canvas from Bear Creek. Fit like factory, just terrific workmanship. No bloodshed and almost no cussing. Now, off to Missouri and points north. E7B81715-B918-40D0-A9F6-D5BD9B430F22.jpeg
