When i step on the toilet and it burps,
I know it's time to go dump
The water gauge works, and i can open a compartment door and visibly check the fresh water

Why do I press the button at all?


Question: Do you go to Church?
related: Do you believe in Miracles?

You push the button to see if a Miracle has happened and the sensors are working as they should instead of as they do.. Of course they are not. but hey. Faith springs eternal they say.



Why the need to slam God and His children by comparing them to your cheap and broken black tank gauge?

A very accurate way to determine when it's time.


If God didn't want us to eat cows, he wouldn't have made them out of Steak and Cheese.

Life is a lot like a baseball pitch. Sometimes you get a fast ball down the middle of the plate and sometimes you get a curve ball in the dirt.

DSDP Don, I have to think if a 40 or more gallon black tank only lasts 2.5 days, you need to cut down on the beer. ??

I was thinking something similar. For two of us, 33 gallons is about 5 days.

My TT sleeps 10. I'm lucky to make 2 full days. Plus I have told them all to use plenty of water

Mine quit working completely . They don't even light up. I really don't care. I can open a compartment door and see the level of the fresh water tank. I can look down the toilet and see the level in the black water tank. And, as just a weekend camper I've never gotten the gray tank to full.

Oh, and, I have a gauge the I plug into an 12 volt outlet to tell me the voltage in the batteries.

So now you know it is full while staying overnight at Walmart, then should we do a Cousin' Eddie sewage drop?

Hook up a hose and macerator. I'm sure the garden department would appreciate the free fertilizer.
