RE: Unusual discharge from grey water tank

We often sit for several months and leave the grey tank open. Knowing that accumulation of debris from dish washing occurs, when we prepare to move I fill the grey tank with as much hot water as the WH can supply along with a 1/4 cup of dawn dish detergent and hit the road. I usually take a FHU for our first nights stop and dump the grey tank with a Flush King hooked up and watch the gunk flow out, then give a reverse flush and get more gunk out.

RE: Looking for working water hookups in late Oct. or early Nov.

Even if there is no water at sites private campgrounds that remain open should have at least one water supply available and some have freeze proof hydrants, just don't leave your water hose connected overnight.

Drove 15,000 miles from South Texas to and through Alaska and back since April gas has been on the whole time.

RE: Anyone regret full-timing?

We're on our 6th year and have no plans to stop, though that day will come one way or another. Our thing is volunteering. Without a purpose fulltiming would lose its appeal in short order. We only travel about 3 months broke by stays at various state or federal areas that need volunteers. Besides staying in some very beautiful and unique areas we really get to soak in the history and culture and spend enough time to appreciate it.

RE: Fixed my "Warm" hot water

Become a fulltimer, remove the bypass valve and stay where it's warm.

RE: Water line

What size is the water line that goes from the fresh tank into the pump? Mine looks old and I'd like to replace it.... its flexible and kinda looks braided but not a braided metal line.... its held on by hose clamps... How old is your RV? Mine is 11 years and I have no plans to replace things that don't need it.

RE: Repairing underside of bed slide (roller damage)?

Others have done similar repairs where the roller takes the weight of the slide and over time deforms the substrate. Wouldn't hurt to use a adhesive as well as screws to secure the reinforcement.

RE: clogged gray water pipes

I've disconnected the P trap and an accumulation of grease and coffee grounds were the culprit. We do wipe grease and other bits from pans and plates but I guess we don't get it all.

RE: Leaving batteries connected during long term camping

We fulltime and are plugged in 99% of the time. The OEM converter died and was replaced with Progressive multistage and I have only had to add water once in three years where I had been adding water every two weeks. I do check monthly just in case.

RE: New DISH Subscriber With Questions

We've had our share of problems with first line CSR's. We now just go through the menu till the tech number comes up. They always get it right the first time.

RE: spray on liner

Line-X 5 1/2 years outside in all kinds of weather still looks as good as new. Well, it could use a wash.

RE: Who is going South this Winter?

This will be our fourth winter in Fl. first was north central, as we are from northern IL a few nights below freezing was fine. After a winter in TX we returned to FL but south near Palm Beach, running the AC was a near every day occurrence second south winter was the same. We did TX again last winter too much freezing rain in the Hill country back to south FL this winter.

RE: New to RV,when traveling how do you know what areas to avoid

Really cracks me up how much of a jerk some people are.. I spent 22 years as sheriff in Californa and was active military as well as Army reserve ..so yes I have insight and knowledge of reading signs of trouble, but what a crack up that you can't ask if there is some app or other ways available to help plan a long term trip in areas a person has never been in without some people making stupid remarks.. There is an app for that it's your experience. Born and raised on Chicago's South side and worked in every neighborhood that's all the experience I need. Oh and common sense.

RE: Heated tanks/under belly?

I know the duct from my furnace runs down directly over the enclosed dump valves.

RE: RV Repair Time-Frame

I spent the most of 2 weeks replacing the floor in the main slide 3'x11'6" but then I'm not a RV repair shop.

RE: Extra 50 amp extension?

Even though we have 50A service in our FW, we only carry a 30A extension cord and appropriate adapters. Rarely do we have to use it, but it's nice to have. If we need to use it, we run only one AC so we don't overload the system. The 30A cord is MUCH easier to handle and store. +1 Have used it on overnight stays when gravel pull throughs are chewed up and I rather pull up or backup to level and still have basic electric without handling a heavy cord.
