Ok will go for a new one. The one that is on there is in real good shape, enough so that I think I can skate by for this camping trip since I am leaving on July fouth for two weeks. Let my DH know that when I get back the gasket should be in so we will need to remove add new gasket and reinstall. Needless to say he is not thrilled, but I can't get it here before leaving with out paying an arm and leg for shipping and since I am about $800 into this (minor..ha ha) job, funds are not there for that right now.
Thanks for all the advice.
