Smile Hello all

I would like to thank this forum and all that I have read over the last past 3 weeks or so, it helped us greatly on our new purchase a couple of days ago, One of the nice things about these forums is that people are giving advice or opinions on real stuff "been there done that sort of thing" without the slamming of different manufactures, Models and so on. Great stuff that has worked for them or people they know personally.
So Hats Off To all You Guys.
We look forward to meeting new friends and fellow rv’ers

Thankyou
Warren & Amy

Well thank you all for the kind words
Some one said if I have a question to just ask.Well here goes
- my old rig had the drain hose in the bumper what the hell do I do with this 2 mile drain hose I have now?
-also purchasing a used unit I would like to clean & rinse all tanks plus sanitize my potable fresh water tank & lines .question is in what order and what chemical . I just want to get them ready for us to put are own mess in them Lol don't know much about the black tank cleaning system either.all I know about the black tank is to make sure the gate valve is open when I put the water to it, found out the hard way :((

These are just a couple questions for now

thank you

Warren & Amy

it's an 07 Newmar cypress 38' 5er 4 tanks 2 grey ,black,potable lots of storage ,just don't no where to put the dam drain hose couplers and so on

I would start first with fresh water tank. Not sure what size it is but if you put about a half to 3/4 cup of bleach in it and fill it. Run some through all your lines and water heater and let it sit for a while and then drain the tank and fill with fresh water.

For the black and grey tanks I use liquid laundry detergent and you might want to add some water softener. Fill the tanks almost full and if able, move your 5er to slosh it around a bit and let it sit, maybe until you go camping and dump them.
