General Discussion / Re: Toilet light
« Last post by SeilerBird on Today at 04:36:33 AM »
The topic title reminded me of a tent camping trip to Lake Mille Lacs. On a middle of the night trip to the outhouse, I saw a glow inside the vault toilet. Someone had dropped a small flashlight in it. Made it easier on us using it the rest of the night. :D
That reminds me of the first time I went tent camping at the Grand Canyon. I arrived at Mather campground in the middle of the night and I set up my tent. I was feeling sick and eventually I had to use the bathroom. It took me a while of wandering around to find the restrooms. Then when I was done I had no clue where I parked my tent. I must have wandered the campground for a half a hour before finally stumbling into my tent.

You'll probably have to cut the handle off that yellow one in order to close the cover on some panels.

On my new trailer that we bought two years ago that is how mine is.

 On the black one, I wouldn't worry about it being in a dry area. With the panel door closed it is in a dry area. Think about the breakers and receptacles in that  panel.

The shallow old work box can be found at Lowe's or Home Depot, along with a good side screw outlet.

From the responses I gather the best thing to do is keep the sewer line connected to the septic and leave both black and gray tanks open.

It would be better to keep the Black tank closed until it's at least half full. I know it's a guessing game due to gauge not working.
If you leave it open you will have a major problem with a poo pyramid. Not something you will want to deal with. I would recommend maybe leaving the grey open most of the time but a day or two before dumping the black tank close the grey tank and let it build up enough to help flush the black water out of the hose.

You may want to explore repairing the gauges. The RV is not that old so you may be able to get parts if needed.

Thanks!  I may have the serial numbers somewhere in this "stuff" from the factory.  If not, I'll have to crawl around to get them.  I have to measure depth of cracks anyway, and check distance between duals for Toyos if that's what I do.  Storage garage is pretty far away from our house so it's always something we wait until we have a list of things to do.

 Don't use any product containing silicone. All that does is make the situation worse,


Why is silicone bad?
