RE: One Question About Fresh Water Flush

My fresh water tank can be seen from under the trailer & it is a translucent white. in hot weather I have seen it turn green inside when not used for 3 weeks. In 3 weeks time it will not look like your lawn, but is taking on a green tint. Of course when you run your fawcet you will not see this. This isn't what I want to be drinking or showering in. Because of this I do add bleach if I know the next outing is over 2 weeks away. Many will disagree or argue with me but for them I say, whatever floats your boat!

RE: Jayco and travel trailer quality

What year and model Jayco was that that had the shower drain into the black tank? I'd like to investigate this. Airstream also sets the floor on the chassis and then the entire fuselage is set on the floor. Not a design flaw. Even our house is built this way. Just curious. It was a 2004 Jayfeather 165. It was our first hardsided TT purchased new. It's a design flaw when it's left exposed to the elements and without any type of water barrier. Houses have siding to cover it. This had nothing. Just exposed edges of particle board flooring. The edges were painted black so not to be noticeable. I realize it was an entry level TT, but these issues are inexcusable not to mention a serious health hazard with the tub issue. Imagine draining the tub with your 2yr old sitting in as you grab a towel. With a trailer that small, I bet it only had one small holding tank. There are still some around. It had a black tank and a gray tank from the factory. The only way to fix the tub problem was to add a second gray tank to which the tub then drained into, then pipe this new tank to the drain for the main gray tank. Also required a new separate vent line for this additional tank. To dump both gray tanks, I first dumped the main gray, then open a second valve allowing the second gray tank to dump thru the main gray valve.

RE: Jayco and travel trailer quality

Bought a new Jayco. After 2 yrs one third of the floor needed replacing because of a design flaw where the walls were set on top of the floors but then the exposed edges of the floors soaked up water running down the outside walls, like a sponge. You could literally see the edges of the floor standing outside the unit. Jayco ignored our request for repair. They had also plumbed the tub directly to the black tank which was directly below it. Imagine how happy I was to be taking a shower and have the black tank backup into the tub where I was standing. I forced them to add a second gray tank just for the tub and away from the black tank. Would I buy another Jayco? NEVER!!! Bought a cheaper Dutchmen. Love it, no issues at all.

RE: Looking to upgrade to a TT after hybrid for 14 years!

Best outdoor speakers have a cord and fit in your ears. Can't understand why people feel the need to entertain everyone in the campground. I like the "radio free" sites. X2

RE: Shower draining to black?

I had a Jayco that had the tub drain to the black tank. Imagine how happy I was to have the black tank backup into the tub when using the tub. I made Jayco replumb it since that is a major health hazard.

RE: 2014 Silverado 1500 4.3 v6 - towing questions

The ecotec 4.3 V6 was first introduced in the 2014 model year. As has been said, the only thing this motor share with the last generation 4.3 v6 is displacement. Not the ideal motor for towing the camper you are speaking of, but will work. The tow pkg includes a transmission cooler located inside the radiator, but keep an eye on the transmission temp displayed in the instr cluster.

RE: Rest Areas Closing in Many States

I guess for those w/o an RV, you just pull off the side of the road & take a piss next to your vehicle.
