RE: Black tank flush system leaking

Not all that uncommon. Black tank flush systems have an anti-siphon valve - back flow preventer (some times called a vacuum breaker). It is usually located inside a cabinet inside. Mine is under the bathroom sink. It can leak if the water pressure is high or it can leak if it fails or it can leak just if it wants to leak.. Mine doesn't really leak, but sometimes it "weeps" a little. I just put a towel or dirty shirt from the laundry under it and all is good. This is an example...it's not mine. (found the image on Google) http://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=36635&d=1375324678 height=350 Well now, there you go Biscuit..you beat me to it again.. Is that picture that I pirated YOURS???

RE: Weight Question

I Might be confused also...but if each axle carries 6000 lbs then you have 12K capacity on the axles alone...also doesn't the hitch carry about +- 20% of the weight?

RE: Storing your "stinky slinky"

Here is my version of the pvc fence post.. I strapped it to a frame cross member right next to the dump valve.. http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t280/oilchange/RV%20Tech/resizedsewerstorage_zpsfb84441a.jpg height=300

When was the last time you drained your water heater?

RE: Our Honey Bucket Console

Interesting, unusual and useful mod...a toilet and a cup holder all in one...and in a handy location. You can use it for both purposes even while you are driving... Bottom line: it certainly is nicely done.

RE: Another Tire Question

Maxxis 8008. ...as suggested. Since you are in WA, go to Les Schwab or Discount Tire and have them order them for you...takes about 2 days to get them and have them balanced and installed. Maybe you can talk the dealer into a switch out as part of the deal, but I doubt it. Schwab and Discount may try to talk you into what they have in stock...insist on Maxxis. They will do it.

RE: Tongue Weight problem

Remember...the tongue weight number you posted is probably the "dry" weight... When loaded up trip ready, that number will go up a good bit. Check the PAYLOAD rating for your tow vehicle and start subtracting the weight of the passengers (except the driver), all the gear loaded in the vehicle, the hitch weight, and the LOADED tongue weight of the trailer.... This way, you can see if you have enough left over payload.

RE: check my wdh numbers please

Looks good to me..also your numbers look good...Were these measurements taken when loaded and trip ready? Just a note...make sure you fully retract those rear stabilizers..in and out of driveways, fuel stations, etc, they could drag. Nice looking rig.

RE: GMC Canyon & 30' Airstream

Have to agree with Ivylog above. I have seriously checked out the GMC Canyon and really like it. But, not for towing a fully loaded 30 foot RV.

RE: Anti-Sway Friction Control

First: Welcome to the Forum Second: Don't take anymore advice from the guy who gave you the no sway control for a long bed truck...baloney. 33 footer: Yes, sway control for sure. There are a bunch out there. If you want to start from scratch and do it right look at Equal-i-zer brand hitch or my choice, Reece Strait Line Dual Cam hitch. (Google them for lots of info) If you want to spend about $2500 and go all the way...Look at Hensley Arrow.

RE: Mobile repair vs Dealers?

Also with a mobile guy, you can stand right there and watch him work. You can ask questions, learn and immediately inspect what kind of job he is doing... Often with a dealer, customers are not allowed inside the shop so you really have no control over what and how it is being done.

RE: Putting Black Tank Chems in Grey Tank?

Won't hurt a bit. But, the traps under your sinks and shower should prevent the odor you are reporting...

RE: Please help... im not sure what to do

Maybe get it "snugged" up as tight as you can by adding a couple more screws and then cover the entire joint top to bottom with a strip of Eternabond Tape...4" size.

RE: Travel Trailer Purchase order

First...welcome to the Forum. Question: how long after you ordered and deposited did you try to cancel the deal? Probably the dealer had placed the order with the factory and was now on the hook for it... If you canceled just a couple of days after you ordered, that's one thing, but if a good deal of time passed, you may be out of luck.. Like already posted, look at your contract. The hard facts are in the details written in that contract.

RE: Replacing water heater bypass valve

Just guessing, but the bands you are seeing are probably PEX crimps. You can just cut them off or cut the tubing and replace the connections with "Sharkbite" fittings from Home Depot.
