Saturday we moved Shasta from the pole barn to a heated storage unit closer to our home. Many details still needed before we go camping, but the first tow went well. Below is a picture. A few more pics on our website, www.currin.us.
Gone Kayaking: An informal camp out sounds like a great idea.
Well, on our first outing I found a leak in the water system. It occurred where the fill spout entered the water tank. I wasn't sure how to definitely fix this. That, along with Shasta being tongue heavy and desiring the cabinet storage above the sink, lead me to install a new water system. Also, the high tank did add top heavy mass. I move the batteries back under the bed and put a new water tank (with pump) under the street side dinette (where the batteries were). I now think we're ready for a Great Adventure.
Does anyone know what years used the gravity feed water tank above the sink? I've seen it on our 1955 and I think a 1954. Should be visible in pictures via the valve in the cabinet above the sink and the high side fill spout on the outside. I'm curious how many years they used this.
Thanks for coming along for the ride, Happy Trails.

We just returned from a trip to Arizona, March/April. Shasta was up for the trip and had very few problems, less than I expected. Quite a site, sitting in the midst of oversized behemoths in may RV parks. We liked the out of the way National Forest camps better.
I think I have the old galvenized water tank kicking around somewhere. If anyone wants more pictures of it, or if you'd like to obtain it, let me know. I do like the new water system, it works well and frees up the primo storage space above the sink.
