RE: When impatience hurts!

I don't blame the 18-wheeler driver one bit. It's obvious that he swerved to the left as much as he safely could to give the motorhome more room and was also braking his vehicle. Note that he got stopped behind the wreck location. This accident is 100% due to the RV driver's impatience and poor judgement.

RE: Priming the water pump

I agree with the new pump only that price seems high (But then it's been some years since I replaced one. One make sure fresh tank is FULL Two.. open faucets. Kitchen and bath before turning on pump. 3 Insect lines for valves and holes. I just paid $72.50 for a new SureFlo pump on Amazon. I also bought a new replacement valve assembly for the old pump for $13.13 so now I have a spare pump.

RE: Priming the water pump

For about $70 you can buy a new Shurflo pump on Amazon and be done with your issue,,,just saying,,, And for an additional $14 you can buy new valves for the old pump and have a spare. (I just did this).

RE: Kentucky's Bluegrass Parkway.

That rough section of the Bluegrass Parkway is going to be repaired and repaved starting at the end of May. It's had it rough spots for awhile and those of us who travel it often know to drive the left lane through that stretch.

RE: tow with all wheel drive?

Check the tow rating of the vehicle you are considering. That should answer your question.

Finally fixed toilet odor problem.

About a year ago we started noting a bad odor from the toilet. No amount of additives or cleaning would help. The bowl was holding water so I knew that the seal on the ball flush valve was okay. I even did multiple flushes of the black tank but the odor would still come back. I also checked the vent stack to make sure that it was open and it was okay. Yesterday, I pulled the toilet up off of the floor and replaced the seal where the toilet bolts to the mounting flange. The old seal had a grove that fit onto the toilet and the seal was still attached to the bottom of the toilet when I lifted it from the flange. The new seal didn't have the groove and was flat on both sides. I added sealant to both sides of the gasket and to the mounting flange and the toilet. I also replaced the mounting bolts and nuts. Before tightening the nuts, the toilet was sitting about 3/8" above the floor because of the thickness of the gasket. I tightened both sides a little at a time to compress the gasket. We now have absolutely no odor in the bathroom! It appears that the original grooved gasket had lost its seal and was allowing sewer gases to leak out of the tank.
