Another Mod checked off on the LE Mod list.
Seperated the tanks today. I now can fill either one or both and use either one or both or drain either one or both. That about covers it

The Parts were $35.00 at the local plumbing store.
And the finished product



I caped the front tank water outlet and moved the line to between my valves. Now I can pump water from either tank or both.

I like it! And now you can attach a hose and drain the tanks water to somewhere other than around the rig. Great job!

HB I thought of that in the planing. First time I pulled that 2" gate valve it was like a fire hydrant.

Yes I put two 45 degree elbows on the 1.5" comming out of the tanks to lower the whole assemble below the frame and then reduced the 1.5" drain from both tanks to 1" and installed two 1" ball valves. Used a 1" four way tee in the middle and PVC to 1/2" pipe on the outboard side so I could spin the water bib on. Then 3" X 1/2 pipe fiting on the inboard side for the water pump pickup to screw on to. put a small ball valve there also for GP. I think its gonna work great. Just gives me the option to do more things with the water supply if I feel the need.

Don. as I said it's a great Mod. Just one thing I would add is a water pump converter right where the black nipple adjoins the original water feed. The kit is less that $15 and then if there is ever the need to winterize you'll be ready. But either way it's a goodun.

HB couldn't I just use a old cut off garden hose and stick it in a 5 gal Bucket that I have poured 3 Gal of the pink stuff in. Close all my valves except the water inlet and pump it through? Of coarse I would do the Hot water bypass first.

Yes, Don. You are absolutly correct; with that mod there should be no need for a pump valve. Jusy connect a hose and pump from the antifreeze bottle.

OK...I'm perplexed. Why wouldn't you get pour the pink stuff down one of the drains? Why go the enema route?

Griz-
Very impressive (even for someone who really isn't sure what she is looking at ). I am sure Rod will be very excited to see your latest mod. Keep up the great work!

xoxoxo,
Deb

PS
"Hi" to Jen for me.

Deb How are you? Have you started school Yet? My kids did YEAH! So how is that LE doing? Any Mods from a womens point of view I should suprize my wife with?

Sean You pour 3 or 4 gallons of pinkstuff in the tank and you might only pump 1 or 2 of it. bottom of the tank is flat you will never get every last drop. Pumping it from the bottle is the best way. Of course its only $3-5 dollars these days but I remember 25 years ago when it was very $$$ $8-15! You and I will never need it down here but if you ever move north.....Knowledge is power!

Don

Somehow Don, after meeting you, I'd be very surprised if Jennifer was surprised at anything you do!!

This is what is perplexing me...are you talking about the challenge of getting rid of it all after de-winterizing, or is the challenge to get it mixed within the whole system?
