Discovered something new today about the water system

You all know how when with no city water connected, water pump is on, and you turn the water bay control know to "fill" the water pump runs?

It is drawing from the water tank and pumping water back into the water tank via the line from the fill valve to the top of the tank.

I found I could set the water pump on, turn the knob to "fill", and then put the winterizing line into a 5 gallon jug of water and it was drawn in and delivered to the fresh tank. Was pretty fast, too drew in 5 gallons in less than 5 minutes.

The higher you can set the jug the faster it will draw in and fill.

Wow, no I didn't know that. Now I'm thinking that may be a great way to suck up a chlorine-water mix to disinfect the system. Presently I have to perform the "pour some bleach into the fresh water fill hose" to get it into the system.

Powercat ras did you connect into an existing satellite radio antenna for your portable connection or use the antenna that probably came in the kit?

Yes I used the existing OEM cable from the Ext. Sat Connector in the basement and attached it to one side of an A-B switch, the other side has the cable to the roof dish. It's not right on the back of the receiver it goes to a little box called a Hybrid Duo Node that allows for a future 2nd viewing location using a Joey.

I had a residential Fridge put in my 06 Tour today. I had it done at RV Services in Ashland, VA. They did a great job. They were able to take the old one out and move the new one in though the passenger side window over the couch. They had to trim the fridge space opening frame just a small bit. They widened the front frame by about an inch and the height by about 3 - 4 inches. I will add a piece of quarter round trip on the right side but overall it's a done deal. Wife loves it. Definitely won't have any problem keeping the beer and soda cold. http://www.irv2.com/forums/images/smilies/dance.gif

We are using a luggage strap wrapped around the handles. I'm still looking for a better solution. I have seen a locking device that THOR uses on their new RVs. Have not seen it online any where yet.
