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

I would call Kermit at the factory and ask him what to use. The best information is from the folks who built it.  Grin

PJ, the 85 lb dog is a 11 year old Labrador Retriever named Bonnie. The 124 lb dog is a 3 year old German Shepherd Dog named Charlie. Charlie loves his milk bones with all those vitamins. He stands 30" at the shoulders. You can see a picture of them on the "Adventure Anywhere" page. It did not make the main page as the motorhome was really dirty that day.  Between the PC's size and looks, and this big shepherd, we get a lot of comments from people passing by. It is amazing how many people stop to pet him because of they had a German Shepherd Dog at one time or just because they think he is a "real" dog. Like you said, there are a lot of really small dogs in some really big rigs.

I weighted my 2350 on the way home from the factory pickup. A lot of stuff from the old motorhome, that ended up in the shed, was still in it. The E450 (an upgrade on my 2350) rates the front for 4,600 lbs, mine was 3,600 lbs. The rear is rated for 9,500 lbs, mine was 8,160 lbs. Gross weight is rated at 14,500 lbs, mine was 11,760 lbs. I had me (235 lbs), my wife (weight unknown), a 85 lb dog and a 124 lb dog all in the motorhome.The water tank and LP were both full but the gray and black empty. This left us a pay load of 2,740 lbs to spare.
I should reweigh it now that I have settled down with what I normally carry for a trip.

I am trying to post a picture of my mod to the sani-con hose. It allows me to break the water vacuum in the hose after dumping to clear the water out of the hose. It will work for winterizing also.
The instructions of how I did this is above in a previous reply.

I hope this works.  shrug

DJM, as you look at the map of Yellowstone, you will notice the roads are in the figure "8", pointing up toward north. The right side is the eastern side and the left is the western side. The top half of the "8" is called the upper and the bottom half is the lower. West Yellowstone is on the left and the mid-point just outside of the park. The road from West Yellowstone to Old Faithfull and down to the south entrance would be the "the lower western loop to Old Faithfull" or the left side, lower part of the figure "8".

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, but we were out camping this past weekend and did not have an internet connection.
1018  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Fridge door fell off on: October 18, 2010, 07:19:46 am
Our door also fell off because the bottom hinge broke. I crazy glued it and was able to finish our trip. When we got home and opened the door to unload, it broke again. I called Dometic and they asked how old our door was, the model number and if the inside was smooth or quilted. I told her that it was three months old, I bought it in June and this happened in September. She said she would sent me a new door with instructions on how to remove the front panel from the old door and put it into the new door. I got the door two days later, but no instructions. After playing with it for a while, I finally got the panel moved and installed the new door. No charge to me. So call Dometic if you are still under warrenty.

DJM you don't say how long you plan on taking to get to Yellowstone, how long you can be at Yellowstone and how long to get back. Yellowstone is my favorite place to go. I go in the spring, summer, fall and winter. Love it in the snow, but not for everyone.

    On the way out I would suggest stopping at: Mitchell, SD to see the corn palace, the Black hills to see Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park, Cody, Wy to see Buffalo Bill Center and the rodeo (take Wy. rt 16 accross the mountains, not rt 14 or 14A). From Cody, you can enter the parks east entrance or take the Chief Joseph Hwy to Cooke City, Mt and on to the northeast entrance, through LaMar valley to see all the buffalo and elk, then to the Mammoth Hot springs and out the north entrance to Gardiner. Coming back into the park, go down the east side of the loop and see the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone including the upper and lower falls. Cut across the middle of the loops and go to West Yellowstone, Mt. There you will want to go to the Grizzly and Wolf center to see them up close. You have to be really lucky to see them in the wild. Coming back into the park, take the lower western loop to Old Faithfull, stopping along the way to see the many sites, springs, mud pots etc. After Old Faithfull go out the south entrance toward the Grand Tetons and Jackson, Wy. These are just some of the many sites to see. You could spent weeks in Yellowstone and not see everything.
