With the san-i-con, I crack the grey tank first just to insure it's working and no leaks (don't want the black tank leaking  Grin ) Then I open the black tank and turn on the macerate to get rid of the solids; next turn off the macerator; then open the grey tank and wait until both tanks equalize. I turn the macerator back on until both tanks are empty.

I used to use the sprayer after dumping the black tank; but, by letting the soapy water from the grey tank clean it, I seldom use it.

By doing this, aren't you just cleaning the bottom half of the black tank? I would suggest you still use the sprayer to clean the top half of the tank. I do like the thought of cleaning the bottom of the black tank using the gray water.

Phoenix does not put a compartment for the sewer hose on their motorhomes. Some people add a home made tube or use one of the other compartments.

Mine has the 6 and 8 inch valve extensions on the rear, which one should check the tighness on the valve stem as well as the four cores. The front has the half inch valve caps that allow adding air without removing them. One should remove them and check the valve core also. I do this every year, but some say I am anal about stuff like this.

 2Frazzled had it done at the factory during the build. Hopefully she will see this and explain it in more detail.

Thanks, Charlie the GSD likes to watch the world go by.
No way was I going any where Near Gettysburg during the mass of people at the 150. Hotels and campgrounds were booked up for 50 miles around. Parking was a nightmare. It only takes me an hour to get to Gettysburg, but not that week.

My top hinge is a hex head with a slot for a flathead screwdriver. The bottom hinge is a large plastic pice that rest on a metal plate. It must be the newer design I read about. I had a door break many years ago (1997 or 1998) but none since. I think the only people that need to worry about this are those who have models older than a couple of years ago, 2009 or before. Just my guess.

Holly, You might want to call Camping World ask for an estimate from them before going with your current estimate. Last week I saw the SMI system installed in a Jeep Grand Cherokee and it was real nice. Nothing to do inside, just hook up and go. For full timing it might be a better system. He had it installed along with the tow bar & plate at Camping World in Hanover, Pa.

Did you get your noise and counter top fitted?

Sparky, after I retired the first time, I went to work selling RV at a small dealer here in Maryland because i was not really ready to just sit around waiting for my wife to retire. I am now fully retired. At one of the shows for RV dealers there was a rep from Michelin and he was telling everyone about the added oil compounds in RV tires and why they add them. I hope this helps in deciding what to do. I am just passing on what I know and you can do with it as you see fit.

Barry that is a great post for RV tires. RV tires are made differently than truck tires including light truck tires. Our PCs come with light truck tires on them. Mine are Michelin LTX M/S LT225R16 with a DOT date of 1511 (March 2011). We picked up our PC on 11/11/11. My understanding is that because motorhome tires are expected to sit longer than LT tires, Michelin adds more oils to the compound. As one drives these oils work there way to the surface to keep the tires from drying out. When motorhomes sit for long periods of time they tend to dry out and crack. All this being said, Michelin does not give any advice on LT tires on a motorhome, just motorhome tires on a motorhome. Again all this being said, I plan on following the advice that you gave in your post.

P.S. Those who have PCs made in 2012 and 2013 should look at this Michelin recall notice. http://www.michelinman.com/voluntary-safety-recall.page

A buddy of mine went 12 years on a set of tires. Then one day the left inside rear blew going down the highway. The flying tread took out both his gray and black tanks, the tail pipe and part of the side wall. He could of bought several sets of tires for what he paid in repairs. I don't think he will ever go over the 7 year mark again.  I know I won't go pass the 7 year mark.
Penny wise, pound foolish.

Welcome to our merry little band.

In 2013 when we ordered our second PC, the backup monitor was part of the Mirror. I had them install the older style 4" monitor where Ron's use to be. I don't seem to hit it the way a lot of people do.
