So we did blog posts on RV Tank Use and hoses that included a CAM Lock Hose System and then we did one on Electronic Dump Valves. We mentioned that we put in the electronic dump valves so we did not need to go outside each time to dump our gray tank as we leave ours closed. So that blog post and video opened up quite the conversions here and elsewhere dealing with keeping the gray tank open or closed when you are parked. NOTE: WE DO NOT PROVIDE THE BELOW SERVICE….WE HAD IT DONE!
We treat the gray tank like the black as it does have solids that get into it from washing dishes. You also have grease from cooking, not that you dump that down the drain, but it does get in again from cleaning. Don’t forget the washing detergent, shampoo, soap, etc and so on. Remember it is not just water going down the drain, these items can and do collect on the bottom of the tank and on the sides.
Yummy! Thanks for sharing. What did the black/grey water flush cost? Can we ask for the OOB discount:)
Good question…It was $190. As far as a discount…If you came to this park and have the same guy do it, I am sure I could work something out. But then again…I did not even get a discount for the promotion. LOL But you know us…it’s all good and we are happy to help.
No comment. It wouldn/t do any good. Now go get your anti bacterial soap..
Thanks David! We will be in area in a few weeks and I’ll give him a call. All the best, Denise
Hi Dave, loved Brenda’s captions at the bottom of the screen. Lol i know it’s you. Happy New Year guys. I know i’m late.
Always enjoy your videos. We will be leaving our tanks closed! Tanks for for info!
“Tanks for for info!” – Ok, now that was funny! :)
Do they cover San Diego?
Only YOU (and Brenda) can take a topic like that and really make it educational! Good show! Nice work! Cheers to you both. Kristi & Jim
David – as always great article. If you have not tried Borax as a intermediatery step I would highly recommend it. This has made a huge difference in keeping our tanks clean. We are headed toward the Tampa RV Show and I hope to pick up some of the electronic valves you bought. Thanks for sharing. Here was our article about using Borax – http://mhrig.com/2016/05/plumbing-ewwww-whats-that-smell/
Oh my gosh! You have no idea how helpful this video is for me! Hello!
I just purchased a used 1993 26ft Sunnybrook travel trailer. The woman I purchased it from had a family emergency and left town. Her sister sold it to me however she wasn’t sure if the tanks had been drained before it was towed to her house. After the tow to my house, I can safely say there were not. Pee yew! It smells like rotten egg sewer gas in the bathroom. I was looking for a way to have the tanks professionally cleaned and started my search with YouTube. I watched your video and didn’t even realize you were in Az. After watching the video I decided to google a business to do it here in Peoria. Your blog post came up and I saw the tag for Az. Then I realized his truck had a 623 area code! YES! Calling him tomorrow!! Thank you!
Hi…Thats great to read. (How you found us, not the bad smell.) Be sure to say we said hello. We are back to that park each December.
