Thanks for the help Don, I think that is something I can handle, That is great info. I just want it to work right, so I think it will be worth the work. I also had alot of problems with our motorhome when it was new. I am definitly getting my warranty work done before my time is up. I did notice that my brake pedal feels really hard when trying to stop, I wonder if I might need to do the same?

Ok Don
This is still on the list to get done. Just keeps getting shoved back. Hopefully will get a chance to work on it soon.
Sounds like you had a nice trip. We had to cancel out big trip up North. How was the tour?

My Southwind 36RS is currently at the dealer for this very problem. The tech inspected it and found it to be a defect. The tech contacted Fleetwood and they are aware of the problem but aren't going to do anything about my problem at this time. They are supposed to be working on a new tank (without the shelf) to install in the new models but I don't know if they will replace my tank or those of us with this problem. Sounds like to me it's a defect and it should either be warranty or a recall item.

I've read the fix on page 1 and am not sure I'm ready to pull the toilet off and try that repair (my wife too would have a heart attack). At one point I broke a stick off in the shute and had to take the toilet off to remove it and couldn't see into the tank at that point either. When this above repair was made was made did you happen to see if the shelf could be cut out to allow a straight drop? If I knew this I would pull the toilet and the platform it's on and dremmel that shelf out.

As of now I still haven't fixed this. The wife being nervous and all that. I have not had a re-occurance of the problem, If you fill the bowl when flushing seems to generate enough water. My concern with doing this, is that we boondock and if we have a lot of people, we will fill the black tank. Which I guess in a way would make this shelf wet and stop the plugging, but at the same time. Mean we have to stop using it. I am basically waiting till either that happens, or it plugs up again for her to change her mind. I am confident I can handle the change. Just have to overcome the desire not to cut big holes in the floor
