Never, in my wildest dreams--well, maybe only there--could I attempt to do something like that.  But it sure does help to expand my understanding of one more mechanical mystery in my motor home!  Thanks for sharing  all that, Ron.

I read somewhere that when you fill it to the point that it flows out of that other fill spot, that it can create a siphoning situation and the water can continue to get sucked out for awhile, especially when moving.

I was at the factory today to have a few items addressed, latches being one of them, before my warranty period is up.  Bob gave me a few extras and replaced the one that sticks the worst.  It wouldn't hurt to give them a call and see if you can get a few extras to keep on hand for any that break and to replace any that chronically get stuck.  He said that the ones they used prior to these wouldn't get stuck, but instead had the opposite problem, popping open occasionally while underway.  So they changed to the ones they use now.

By the way, I highly recommend visiting the factory if you have a list of items that needs work or looking at.  After the warranty period is up, they only charge $60 an hour.  No one knows your rig better and they are an awesome bunch of people.

Thanks for clarifying that, Don.  I am looking at the packaging that I saved (CyberPower 150 W Power Inverter) and it indeed does not specify pure sine wave, even though it says it can be used to charge PCs, phones, tablets, etc.  I specifically asked the salesman at Best Buy, and he said it was pure sine wave.  Guess I should have know better than to listen to him.  Angry

I know there are a few active, well-populated RV forums out there, and those would probably be worth visiting to see if they have a section to advertise RV related items for sale.  The one I am most familiar with is the Escapees RV Network.  If you go to their forum, towards the bottom there is an entire section devoted just to the sale of Toads and stuff.
Good luck--both with the knees and the sale!

P.S. Another thing I do when dry camping is I do not plug my PC or my cell phone into an outlet to charge unless or until I am either using shore power or the generator.  The inverter that powers the house plugs is a modified sine wave inverter, as opposed to pure sine wave.  Shore and generator power both provide pure sine wave.  I have seen debate on whether or not the modified sine wave can damage sensitive electronics.  Bottom line for me, though, is if they are wrong and the modified sine wave does not do damage, then no big deal that I am changing my routine somewhat to avoid it anyways.  On the other hand, if they are right that it does do damage, then there's a big cost associated with ignoring that.  Another charging option for the sensitive electronics is to use one of those automobile inverter/adapter things that plug into the dash board while you drive.  Just my 2 cents!

Hmmmmmm.... maybe I've been doing it all wrong....  I just finished a week of dry camping and definitely had the inverter on so that I could keep an eye on the battery's charge.  I could also look at the panel for the solar system on the bottom of the kitchen sink that shows the battery voltage, but the inverter panel is looking me right in the eye when I'm at the dinette.  In fact I've never turned the inverter off.  Maybe I should?  Also, I don't think the alarm for low battery voltage will sound if the inverter is off.  Plus you would;t get the codes telling you what the alarm is announcing--could be anything from low voltage to too high of a voltage. 
Would love to hear some insight and tips from other PC dry campers out there!

Great idea Amy.  If I venture into any of those types of places you speak of, I'll try to remember to take a photo and send it along to you for future use, if needed.  Good luck and thanks for your hard work!

Welcome Jim & Wendy!  Maybe Earl in his spare time can embroider your testimonial onto a sampler for the wall of his office.  Great post!  Heart Shower

Nice details, Ann.  Thanks for posting it!  All I can say, though, is I am surprised that it was the passenger side that weighed a tad more, given the size of those humongous, beautiful dogs who ride behind the driver's seat!

Congrats on your new-to-you PC Lakedog!

And, Ann, that ramp is awesome.  My doggie isn't in need of a ramp yet, but your point about the black step is excellent.  Her eyes aren't what they used to be.  Thanks!

If I am in the area at the time, it would be cool to meet other PC'ers and see their rigs.  I'll just keep my eye on the forum and if it works out to be there, be there I will.  Smile
