Hi Clint,

Reminds me of our first weekend out in the Dip. I did flush the tank but did not re-fill with fresh water because I was going to a camp ground for the weekend and figured I'd do it there before I left. Campground's pump broke and I had no water. So it was off to Wall Mart to buy bottled water for the tank. I felt really dumb. Lesson learned.

Congratulations on the new Endeavor. Hope there are many happy miles ahead for you and it.

Hi clint,
Hey, if that's the worst that it gets, your doing just fine. Now I guess you won't let that happen again since the plugs' now in the hot water tank!

Fun times are ahead for you.

I sometimes believe the only reason some of us own MH's (or boats), is for the really great stories we will have to tell.

Many more to come, ... enjoy.

Our first time out I forgot to take the screw on/off cap off of the SaniCon. When I turned it on the hose did all kind of gyrations and puffed up. Turned off the pump and, well you kinda got an idea of the rest of the saga. Never forgot again.
