Our local RV service & repair place has one and it looks to be a very simple installation. The unit is about 4 X 4 X 8 inches and either end has three openings (white, black & green) and you just cut your existing cord off about 8 inches from the grommet that fastens it to the interior wall, bare the ends of the wires where you cut off and insert and secure the wires in the marked openings. The only real hard part is remembering to put the unit in line with the wire properly oriented for the power in plug and the coach. There were four mounting lugs to secure the unit to the interior wall and once installed nobody would know it was there. The unit I was looking at was very similar to the second one on this page RV Surge Protection

You can tell them no you won't turn it off....it's technically not a fire. If that were the case you wouldn't be allowed to light a bbq

I'm from BC as well. A forest ranger or park ranger or park facilitator has absolutely no authority. If you tell them no, there isn't anything they can do about it short of calling the police. And the RCMP are smart enough to either not take the complaint at all or tell the park person to spend their time more wisely.

For the clear adapter do you want a 90* or a 45*?
Our last two DSDP's have had built in tank rinsers, even so I can count on ONE hand the number of times I've used them and that's 12 years. If you wait to dump the tank till it's full (or add water to that level) you should never need to rinse it out.

They don't, and neither does Coach-Net, which is what we have.

Suggestion, don't store your potable water hose in the wet bay. The only thing I store there is the sewer hose and my sewer hose weights, nothing else. I also cap my water hoses prior to storing them in a separate compartment.
Remember that once bleach is mixed with water it's life is measured in hours. The health dept here requires restaurants to mix new bleach water for sanitizing each day and throw the old away.
I use peroxide straight out of the bottle, it doesn't go bad and sanitizes just as well. It's also cheap and I just buy a new bottle at the beginning of the season.

Agreed!
We use Kirkland (Costco) and have for years now. The only time we've used the special stuff was when we got a starter kit with a new rig.

I leaned that sometime around 1957 or so when my parents rented a TT, then bought a '58 TT!
Now the only thing we move out is our clothes and food (well the six cats too). Even the DVD's stay in there and the crock pot. Crock pots are great for dinners if you have electrical hookups, not so good if you have to run the generator for 10 hours!

First time was during the fire ban year before last and we were at Englishman River Falls and the last time was last year and we were at Pine Grove on Lake Cowichan (name may be wrong but its right across the lake from Gordon bay) In both cases rather than rock the boat and make DW crazy we just turned off the unit.

Used Sam's Club Member's Mark in my 5er for 11 years and have been using it in my Breeze for a year with no hint of blockage. I used 1/4 roll of the starter kit before switching. You have to use 2-3 times as much of the single ply junk.

Replacements for your light bulbs and appliance bulbs. Batteries for flashlights. Sense of humor, patience and enthusiasm.
