Well, if he headed for the hills, I hope he's still in the Brave. They are really fun! I've had mine a month now and am really enjoying the honeymoon
In the meantime, I'm still looking for an answer to why the new waste hose I purchased does not fit my 73, 24' 440 Winnebago Brave.
It's obviously close in size, but the hose and cap I purchased are both too small.
Where do I turn next to find a fitting hose so that I can pull into the Park this Saturday?
I'm scheduled to move into for monthly tenancy, so they will be performing an inspection of the RV. In so much, it needs to be sound.
A second issue I face is a small crack in the holding tank. It appears that someone, some time ago either plastic welded it, or maybe applied marine paint -to "bandage" it. Regardless, it's started to crack and has a small drip with when the water is running through rather than holding. I don't want to find out what type of leak I have in the closed position!
So, after much thinking, my "McGyver" solution is to apply a Bondo seal tomorrow. I've emptied the tank and will pray the CA Bay Area is dry so that i have time to put on the two coats to make the 1/4 seal I desire. I was going to apply a fiberglass patch, but thought I'd run the risk of a reaction with the plastic and epoxy. The Bondo is a latex based product, so this should work.
I'm sure many of you have sealed leaks in these RV's before.
Any advice on capping that leaking tank as well as capping off the second tank under the bed would be appreciated.
The smaller of the two holding tanks is leaking and because I'll be using city water, I'm in no need of capacity for holding. Therefore, I've decided to cap the leaking tank and just use the larger. Should I expect any problems -like losing my water source altogether because the leaking tank is plumbed to run the RV? I can't define which send water throughout, so I'm looking for experienced dialog.
As I stated in the above post: I'm a "can-do" single woman. And this RV is in near perfect condition save for the few little things that need doing. I've owned a custom Porsche 993 Wide Body show car for 10 years now and although it's now for sale, have spent hours of loving labor on it. So, although this beast will likely be a knuckle buster compared to the 993, I'm positive I can do this!!
Any and all advice and words of wisdom, as well as starting a dialog based on experience is avidly welcome!
Happy Holidays from
