Insect prevention in black tank

My wife and I are currently living in my Keystone Outback in central Florida awaiting our house to be completed. We are living in it full time. I travel for work, so when I am gone I leave the front (shower) and rear kitchen) grey water tanks valves open. the black water tank is closed, as she will not even hit 2/3 of a tank in the week. I dump and flush them on the weekend I am at home. We use orange black tank enzyme packs. My wife is advising there are gnats that live in the black tank, and sometimes fly out of the tube going to the black tank when she flushes the toilet. She does hold the pedal down for a bit to ensure enough water to keep the poop pyramid problem from happening. I have not seen the bugs yet, but am wondering if she could add some sort of insecticide to kill any insect life in the black tank: but not turn the tank into a bomb or damage it. The upper ball seal in our Domatec 310 is leaking a little and the bowl will dry out over night. I plan on replacing the seal this weekend. I do have a "dip" in my dump hose that holds water to make a P trap for the shower grey tank and kitchen to keep sewer gas at bay from the park sewer line. Has anybody addressed this issue? Thanks for any assistance.

What is the best way to deal with snail mail?

My wife and I have sold our stick and brick house and are relocating to Florida, our house will not be done till late June. I travel for work, but in short stays covering long distances, logistics of getting a work truck and tool trailer moved prohibit moving the TT moved as frequently. The current plan is to park the camper near Wichita Ks. till mid March, then move to Tifton Ga. (my next work site) for several months, then moving the camper to Punta Gorda Fl. till our house is completed. What would be the best method of dealing with snail mail when we are bouncing around the country? Thanks for any help Erik

RE: SRW Tires

Always check your rim capacity also. I bought a SRW F350, I checked the tire capacity of Nitto 20" tires, it is 3750lb each. The rims that came with the truck were rated at 2640lb. I did not know this until I had cracked a rim (weight or off road hazard). I now have 4 k rims.

RE: WD hitch setup with air bags

I am using an Anderson WD hitch and I set it up using the recommended settings and installation procedure. I do however have wildly fluctuating weights in my camper and the bed of my truck, between fresh and waste water and fuel, over a thousand pounds of weight plus or minus. I have found that by using the airbags after the trailer is hitched and WD hitch hooked up, I set the bottom of the hitch to the same measurement as the original set up elevation. The weight transfer is good and the trailer tows like a dream. I have scaled the truck several times, when the tongue weight gets heavy the weight transfer is effected, by unloading the front but I can still get close to unloaded weight on the front wheels. The bags do not effect the weight transfer, but do keep my headlights on the road.,

RE: Towing with a dually or single?need help please

I have pulled heavy fifth wheel campers and trailers for pleasure and work. The percentage of having a trailer hooked up to the truck has gone down to towing a trailer 3 or 4 times a month. I switched from DRW to a SRW one ton truck, the only time I miss the DRW is in high wind towing. I did worry about the safety factor of drive tire loss while towing, but got over that over the years. IMO the convenience and cost reduction of the SRW (when not full time towing) make it the best choice for me.

RE: RV without a WD hitch

I was exactly the OP. I bought a 39' TT after pulling 5th wheels. I knew my truck was more than capable, (15 F350CC 4X4), I towed it home with just a ball in 35-40mph crosswind. what should have been a 5 hour trip turned into a 7 hour trip at 55 instead of 70mph. Before we took the trailer out again I got an Anderson hitch that is not super great with weight distribution (that is not a necessity) but is great at sway control, and super easy to install, hook up and get correct adjustment for sway control. I have put over 7k on trailer since and I am very happy with my set up.
