Any home sewer clean out at a home goes into a sanitary line. Some houses have a storm drain at the curb of the property, but I'de like to believe that all of us would know the difference!
No, not a storm drain - a storm water management system on my property consisting of 2 underground dry-wells and an overflow pipe that runs off into the edge of my front yard. It consists of buried 4" white PVC pipe with three 4" clean-outs over a couple-hundred-foot run. I didn't know any of it was there until I started pulling the caps off of the clean-outs. The plumbing is identical to my sanitary sewer line, including the clean-outs, and also in the same general area.
My point is that a white cap sticking out of the ground may not necessarily be a sanitary sewer clean-out.
Ok, well there is an exception. However I would like to think if someone went through the trouble with that kind of system then they know what they have. Or if they bought the house it was explained to them. Our storm water drains at the curb are marked "drains to river" with a picture of fish on them.
So, do we agree that "a white cap sticking out of the ground may not necessarily be a sanitary sewer clean-out"? I would think that conducting a simple test as suggested by Turbojimmy before discharging the waste water into the drain might not be a bad idea.
I don't think they exist. I have the 70A and asked at the service dept. and they said there were none. The other 2 drain the tank fine. There are a couple of FB groups that have ERA in the name and have been helpful for these kinds of questions.
Thanks for the help! That was my suspecion but couldn't be sure. I will check out the FB groups when I get a chance.
In preparation for winterizing my new 2016 ERA 70A, I have been reading up the Winnebago factory operation manuals. While everything seems pretty easy to follow, one thing that puzzles me is that I am unable to locate two of the waterline drain valves (four total) that are described in the manual as located "beneath bed cabinet (driver side). Remove top panel to access".
The manual also described that the hot water tank bypass valve could be found in the same location "beneath bed cabinet (driver side), accessble by removing the top panel". When I followed the instructions and removed the top panel beneath the bed cabinet, I did see the hot water tank with the bypass valve there but could not find any drain valves.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks!
