Frankly John, your videos are about the most helpful tutorials I have found recently and my nose has been stuck in the internet daily since we picked up our DP a little over a month ago. These are exceptionally well done.

That's really great to hear! Thanks!

Funny... the motivating factor for creating these videos was that friends of ours just bought a 2005 Newmar Kountry Star (as a matter of fact, they are still enroute home with it right now)! So far, they are loving it. Hope you are enjoying yours as well!

Wow! Talk about PERFECT timing!
I am a newbie, (I acquired a 2006 HR Admiral SE 3 weeks ago, my 1st RV ) and I was planning on emptying both my black and grey tanks tomorrow and I was a little concerned that I might not get the black tank fully cleaned or completely empty but now that I watched your vid on you-tube I now have the confidence to do the job right! Thank you so much John for your vids! I have watched 4 of them so far and found them very informative! I look forward to viewing all of them in the future.

P.S. please let me know when you want to trade in your current RV so that I can snatch it up before anyone else out there gets it! It has to be the cleanest and most well maintained RV out there!

Well, you obviously are a man of impeccable taste! How long have you had your HR Admiral and what do you think of it so far?

John....great video(s). You have inspired me to flush & clean my hotwater heater....however my Coach is not equipped with an antifreeze system. Any ideas on how you get the vinegar in to the HWH?

Jack,

Thanks! Glad the video(s) was (were) helpful.

As for the water heater... hmmm... that's a good question. The only option I can think of would be to also remove the over-pressure relief valve and use a long-nozzle funnel to pour the vinegar into the water heater. Reinstall the over-pressure valve and turn the city water back on to finish filling the tank.

Maybe someone else here will have some more input/ideas?

John.... I asked the same question on the Class A forum and the general consensus was to remove the pressure valve and funnel pour the vinegar. Do you really put 50litres of vinegar into the tank?

Getting bleach into the fresh water tank without an antifreeze set-up is also a challenge. Fortunately, I was able to remove the filter from my in-line water filtration canister and premixed the solution in the filter canister and then push it into the tank with the city water. Don't know how you'd do it if you Only had a direct hose connection.
