Bill, we came back from Rocky Mountain NP/ Grand Lake, Co via I70 through the tunnel and through Denver on a Friday afternoon. The PC run in "D" the whole time and kept up with the traffic. Love this motorhome.

ragoodsp, Welcome and keep them coming. I wonder how far I am away from you (Maryland to NH) and if you would be interested in looking over my PC someday. In the mean time I guess I will just have to follow along here.  Wink

Our 2010 PC came with a Samsung DVD with surrond sound built in. I wanted a Blue ray DVD player, but Stuart could only find a Sony with the controls on the front with an up charge of $380. I did not want it that bad. The player needs to have the surrond sound built in to power the five speakers already in the rig and the controls need to be on the front in case you misplace the remote. Only a couple of player meet these requirements.

I would try to fix your current unit. You can always use my grandmothers way, give a good wack.  rolling on the floor

Ron, you missed the new state/location field that Aimee just added today. It is at the bottom of your profile and it displays in each reply. Really cool.  Wink

Thank you, I now have change my information and put in the new state field that Aimee just added.  ThankYou

 Ron, all that info you got is readly available, even in the phone book. Some of what you got was old info and is now incorrect, other is correct.  I am not to worried about the bad guys, as I just might have an alarm system, who knows, only the shadow knows.  Cheers Thank you for the information.

Why don't people fill in the location information in their profile?  shrug At the very least fill in the city and state. Sometimes the gender and age part could be helpful when replying to a question.

DJM, Why did you winterize this early? We were up in Jim Thorpe and Hamburg this past Saturday and there is still a lot of fall left before needing to winterize. In two weeks our Good Sam chapter will be headed for our annual trip to Lancaster area.  Then there is the Tanksgiving weekend. Acutualy we will take the whole week off and head south to either Williamsburg or North Myrtle Beach. It is not time to put out PCs away yet. I will drain and blow out the lines between each trip just to be safe.

For those who did not get or have not added the anti-freeze pickup tube, You can always pour the anti-freeze into the fresh water fill hole into the fresh water tank. Then just turn on the water pump and run each facet until the pink comes out. This will take more anti-freeze as you can never get all of it out of the fresh water tank. In the spring when you sanitize your tank what is left will come out. Remember to turn the hot water bypass before turning on the water pump and to drain the tank by using the drain plug on the tank.  The pink that comes out of each facet will go into the "P" trap and winterize them. I have not tried to winterize the sani-con pump yet, but I guess I will just put some anti-freeze into the gray tank and pump it out throughthe pump onto the ground. What a waste of aniti-freeze. If anyone knows a good way of doing this, please let me know.  Help

There are some bug based cleaners and enzymatic types that do a great job for end of year (winterizing)  tank cleaning that pretty much take care of the sludge referred to in the original post.

L. G.

Could you provide me with some product names and if and how you use them? Thanks

I store our motor home in our heated garage which happens to be under our master bedroom.  We sleep all year long, about 3 feet away from our PC waste tank vent with a house floor in between.  In an effort to eliminate any "potential" for RV sewer gas, at the end of every RV season, I pour one bottle of bleach down the RV drains & toilet, let sit an hour in the traps, then continue to fill up the waste tanks through the sinks, shower, and toilet until both tanks are full.  I also run the mascerator pump briefly to get the diluted bleach solution in that system.  Then I let it all sit around a half day, then drain both tanks into the ditch next to the driveway.  This thoroughly cleans the tanks and mascerator system, elimiates sewer gas odor, and "I Hope" cleans off the waste tank sensors.

BTW: The bleach also does a very nice job of cleaning the toilet bowl and trap door there.  I fill the toilet bowl to near top with water and a little bleach, and let that soak too.

Ron, I was wondering what size bottle of bleach you are using. I have heard that to much bleach can hurt the seals in the valves. I have used /14 cup per gallon of water to clean the fresh water tank but never have I used it for cleaning the holding tanks or this new to me sani-con system.

I like the new description area.  ThumbsUp
Only question is what happened to the options? They do not show under my name. Would it make each post to long?

I stand corrected. It was very early in the morning and the large trees cast a large shadow in the forground.   And I thought it was how dirty the motorhome was. Thanks for explaining why it did not make the home page.  ThankYou

I really like the look of the forum.  Cheers
