You use that connection for two things (that I can think of) 1). Force water up the drain pipe to unclog and/or flush the black system out. 2). Used it to drain your grey tank via a hose. Perhaps to dump on your lawn, garden or anywhere your large hose won't reach.

WOW! I have been reading all of this and sir..my hat is off to you for your perseverance. Truthfully I don't know if I would have the patience to do all of this. I am glad there are rver's out there who are willing to restore these treasures. good luck with future renovations.

Yes didn't want to see this old treasure go away. Thus far we have repainted rear storage bin with Rust paint (black), back outside wall with rust paint (white) .Now I can carry 2 bikes for travel. New stereo, and speakers.Today picked up a deep cycle battery and installed.Now to find a way to charge it other on 110v shore power.PO informs me the only way to charge is when 110v is hooked up.So possibly solar or run heavy cables to alternator ?

Any RV, even older ones should charge the coach battery when the engine is running. So that makes me wonder if the PO didn't know this or the system didn't work while he owned it.

In the unlikely case it never existed, wouldn't take much to hook one up. There is always that option to get a small generator too.

Yes for sure.I will have to have it checked out at my mechanics shop.He has one identical to it.He could check if it's connected to battery. He would know.But now I still have my gas leak problem.When fueling between 3/4 and full fuel spills out passenger side rear above tank. PO says it may be the gasket seal dried up for fuel gauge floater in tank?

Not knowing your tank, I can only guess. What doesn't sound right is, if the tank is only 3/4, how can gas get out the top of the tank. Regardless, if it is the top, it probably is a seal for the float/sending unit. I'm sure your mechanic can figure it out in a minute.

If you can get your head up there or use a mirror, you may be able to confirm and or fix it yourself.

Well for one I think the gas gauge is not accurate. PO said he always filled to the neck and it never went past 3/4. So that's part of the mystery . Had a look myself but couldn't see anything .I think it's right on top.So tank will have to be dropped and repaired.

Back to house battery. When you say coach battery , do you mean the "house" battery?

House Battery = Coach Battery
Chassis Battery = Engine Battery
Pop = Soda
Sofa = Couch
Dog = Canine
The list is endless

Hotwater Tank Bypass

Been a while. In the fall when winterizing , I flushed out the hot water heater.While doing so, the valve completely broke away.So now there is nothing to stop the water from coming out.Don't know if it can be repaired .I decided for now not to use the water heater,because the unitrol valve is broke too .So can I put shut off valves in the line going in the top and the line coming out? Where would I buy the valves other than a rv shop, like a plumber? Also,how do I know what size the tubing is? I have pics here. thanks. http://cdn.irv2.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=23185&d=1341255055 http://cdn.irv2.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=23157&d=1341243187
