Dumb question alert !!

I need to replumb my Mobile home at the lake. I want to take out ALL of the copper and pex fixes and replace with all pex.

I have a 3/4" feed line and then it goes to 1/2". At the faucets it's even smaller. I know the down sizing is for pressure build up...... wait for it..... wait...... Can I just put 1/2" throughout the whole trailer?

Yep, Most of the trailers and park models I have worked on are 1/2

inch throughout.

IF you ahve a mobile home, not a RV or Park Model, i believe code says you have to run at least 3/4" if there are 3 or more fixtures(faucets,toliets,tub,ect) being run off that line? im not 100% positive but thats why it branches down, so you have enough volume first off, then pressure. if you are using more than 1 fixture at a time with only 1/2" you might have volume issues.

Any idea what pressure I should be running the water at?

I am doing a temporary fix until I have time to replace ALL of the piping.

It seems that when I fix one split and pressure up the water I get more.

Currently running at 35 psi.

    • Good idea but I have 1 multiple feeder so that’s where the ground birds are. I tried wiping the post down with the repellent but that stunk too. Might need to do two feeders. 
    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
