My understanding is the hose just bypasses the pump. If you open the gray valve with the hose connected to the sewer hole the gray will just run out and bypassing the pump. This will keep the gray tank from filling up with out running the pump. You can leave it this way for days if you are staying in one place.

To equalize the two tanks, just open the gray valve and then the black tank. The pump has nothing to do with this procedure. Or you can hook up a 3" hose to the back hole, open the valve by it and open the gray valve.

I modified my system and posted it under http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,465.msg2708.html#msg2708
It works great but just don't forget to close the valve afterwards or the next time you use the sani-con you will get a surprise.

Hi John,

    Welcome to our merry band and thank you for the great posting.
    Could you post more information about your "special" meter and maybe include a link to the company. I did a Google search for "sure test" and could only find meters that cost hundreds of dollars. This is a lot more than I can afford just to test campground post. Do you use this in your work also? Thank you.

I am looking for a meter to use in and around the RV but I don't know much about them.

In the back of the refrigerator (outside) there is a tube with a 90 degree bend in it. The gas must travel in this tube to get to the part that lights. Spiders and stink bugs love the smell in the tube, so they build a nest or web in it, stopping the gas from flowing. Try taking a small screw driver and clearing this tube. There is a small brush on a spring handle for this purpose. You may have to remove the tube. There is only one screw holding it on. Hope this helps.

I had Bilstein HD put on both my 2350 and my 2552. The last set was the new, at the time, silver ones. They are also used on most ambulances. The Bilstein customer service told me the HD would be best for a mini motorhome. At first they would ride a little stiff but after about 6k miles they get softer.  I have put about 14K miles on this pair and I am still happy with them.

When I bought this pair, Koni had the FSD shocks but not for the E350 or the E450. The reviews from the class A groups were very good for the FSDs.

You might want to do a search for "mice" on this forum as there was a long thread on this problem and how we got rid of them. Use the search button on the header at the top.

Please fill out your profile as this helps other with your questions.

What is wrong with Ford E-series lights?

Sorry, I meant to say E-series fog lights.

It is heavy and would need two people to move it through the door.

Bob I use the bolt that Phoenix used, without the clamp. I bought a small dog collar, put the bolt through the "D" ring and secured it to the floor. We run the dog collar under and over the chair's base ring and snap the collar shut. It is much easier than the clamp as you have some play with the position of the chair. As heavy as the chair is, I think it would take a lot to make it a flying object.

Ron, when the chair is secured it sits real close to the wing and the wall. One can sit in it but to lean back requires the chair be moved. It just slides on the floor. Then you can lean back and extend the foot rest. On my 2350 I followed your lead and replaced the barrel chair with a captians chair. I think the Euro chair is much more confortable than the captians chair and it can be moved where ever I want it.

OK, the question came to me, do you secure the Euro chair to the floor when traveling, and how?
We use a small dog collar that is bolted to the floor. I don't see anything moving around and I am wondering if I really need to bolt it down. I realize it is safer if I do.

I don't have the in dash nav, instead I have a Garmin RV GPS mounted to the dash. My main reason for doing thie is cost of map updates. My Jeep nav cost $140 a year while Garmin is free, and they update their maps four times a year. Garmin is pretty fast and easy to operate.

Interesting to see another person going from a 2350 up to the 2552.

We use plastic clothes pins. There is generally a hole in the pin that you can tie a note to in oder to know what the clothes pin is for. Put it on what you want until needed, then move it to the gear shift. One for the TV antenna is up, one for the mouse bags, maybe one for your husband,so you don' drive off without him.
 LOL

Judi, we stay at Flory's Campground. http://www.floryscamping.com
It the most convent campground for all the shopping, eating and sight seeing. You will be between Rt 340 (road to Intercourse and Stolfus Meat Market, a must find place) and Rt30 (shopping centers, Millers restaurant $$$ and Diner's restaurant $$.) The Bird-in-hand market is just down the street from the campground.

If you like cheese, take the half hour drive to September Farm. It is owned by one of our members, David Rotelle. His wife makes some grat cheese that they sell there. Also get sandwiches for lunch.

Tell them that I said Hi and that I sent you and I said to give you a good spot under the trees. They are very nice people.
