Agree, I have a dometic and had to make sure the drain was clear;

also, the one time I had a problem was the connection of the water to the back of the toilet, the plastic connector cracked and I had replace it. And the water did show up in the bedroom first, not in the bathroom.

Meyer's are sweeter, not quite as sour. Makes great Lemonade!

Barb and Steve.
You have named 2 other things I do not have or need.

We have a Shark vac.

But I admit to caving in and buying a Porter-Cable 150psi compressor.

And I did buy a hibatchi charcoal grill for 23 bucks, that I DID want but NOT need.

They are just being kind enough to make sure you wake up and not stumble.

I do not have or need a shark vac because I have a built in vac. I do not currently need a wet vac, but as Herb found out today, one could be handy. I do have a Porter Cable and sometimes need it. I do not have a charcoal hibachi - but do have a smoker. I might get a charcoal grill one day. Hibachis are cute!

We bought a little Shark Vac and it sucks. It does a great job and is small and easy to store.
Happy New year to all you Mutey's from RVM 59. May 2014 be prosperous and healthy for all!!

Let me assure you I need more than a shop vac because the carpet in the entry to the bedroom and the carpet strip on the slide under kitchen counter is soaked. Shop vac got a little but I think I'm gonna need a commercial steam cleaner to suck up the water. We laid down towels and walked on them and the were saturated and carpet is still very wet.

Fans fans and more fans, best way to dry it out. Our condo flooded from a cracked toilet water feed line. Ran fans for two days to dry it out.

Attachment 52893
Looking at this and thinking it looks pretty neat, I assume that is a plastic cover??
I am not too sure how one would make it up if one were to fall... or how would one brace oneself if you were heading toward earth...
My concerns, since I seem to find the slippery slope to earth a few times in the winter... probably why I have dents in my scull .... also I don't text, so that will save a spill or 2...

Found some Lemon Heads today. Get this; they were $1.01 total. The guy at the register gave me $18.99 in change for a $20. What a jerk. I hate myself for not speaking up and asking him if 1 penny would break CVS. Actually, when I got out to my truck, I had 98 cents in change. Either I dropped a penny or he shorted me.

If RO is unsafe for routine drinking, what good, other than washing things, is it? What are you suppose to do, have a separate spigot for city water? Inquiring mind needs to know. Not that I will ever give up my city water, just curious.
glad I can't drop pennies anymore... we don't use them (only on paper, not in real money) so I will be the one losing a nickel or a dime.... (starting to get expensive, will have to look down more often, our streets may be paved with silver when all the snow has melted!!!
