Glenn Use Locktite blue if you ever want to take it apart again. Use Locktite Red for a very long term fix.

Thanks guys. I'll price out the Locktite, but as things stand, it gives me an excuse to unsheathe my Leatherman.

Hope the tear water leak faced by the OP must have got resolved by now & all is well.
Are you referring to the screws that mount the water heater to the body of the trailer?

In the 17 when you get the Drivers side rear bench top off, the Screws on top of the Pex Tubes need to be tightened.
I can show you the screws next month at the Scamp Camp in Sebring

Are you sure someone in your family isn't loosening them again as a prank? Trying to make you think you're loosing your mind? I once had a co-worker who would pull pranks like that. He'd leave hints so people would catch on quickly. All in good fun. We thought his pranks were annoying, until he retired, and then we missed them.

I have an IKEA chair that does the same. One of these days maybe I'll get around to putting some locktite on them. Or, if I sit down one day and the chair collapses, I'll definitely get around to doing it.

I did that to my son in law with a kitchen counter chair that I should have reglued the joints well before he sat in it. I'm pretty sure getting even is why he gave me this puzzle for Christmas. It was a bear!

Thank you! Found them on Amazon and may have to try a few. I have most of the Tavern Puzzles (https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&ke...sl_9toin7w3k_e) and thoroughly enjoy them. Took my son two hours to do Patience; took me two weeks. (Well, not two solid weeks.)

It was a hole in the pipe. Just a small hole. How, why, or when it got there is a mystery.
