The blue wave

Haven't had the rig out of the garage for four months so I'm excited that we going boondocking for a few days after Thanksgiving.

I started on my check list to make sure everything is ready. Our Pressure Pro beeped the inside right rear was down too 94psi. On my way out the door to air it up I discovered fresh water was at 3/4.

I hooked up the the fresh water hose to top of the tank while I topped off the tire. Finished the tire and we were still taking on water. This didn't seem right but I could hear water going in. A few minutes later water was coming out from under the coach but it wasn't the water overflow. I turned off the hose and went inside to discover a blue wave of treated water coming from under the bathroom door heading for the salon.

Just got comfortable that I have learned the coach inside out I make a bone head move like this. My fill hose was connected to the flush tank port not the fill tank port.

Oh Oh. At least it was blue water instead of some other color.

Note: All our heads have some bone in them...and a good little reminder that we all can make mistakes. Good you caught it quickly.

Happy Thanksgiving and hope your trip is great!

Been there. Done that in a hurry one time. Water migrated back through a pin hole and shorted our built in Progressive EMS.

At this point I will tell you thank goodness for Coach-Net who found a technician to fix my inattentive stupidity.

I almost did that one time and it got my attention. I fixed it where it can't happen again by using a totally separate hose for the tank flush. I put quick disconnects on both the fresh inlet and the tank flush but reversed the fittings. There is a male fitting on the tank flush and a female on the tank fill. That way it's impossible to hook up wrong.

That is why I use 2 different kind of quick water connectors, plus it's an EZ hook up. You can't mess up, one for the fresh water and one for the black water flush.

iRV2 is a group of wonderful people. Thanks for not kicking me while I was down, the words of encouragement and good suggestions.

The good news we are going camping. Clean up was easy, I immediately pulled the dump and now our garage floor has a little blue tinge. No harm no foul.

Wishing everyone a good Thanksgiving. This is one of the few days of the year it is a little odd for an ex-pat living in Mexico. No Thanksgiving here and I don't think my local friends get the concept of a pilgrim when I try to explain.

A good friend did that, he had to disconnect all electrical while cleaning up, water was dripping through floor onto his inverter/transfer switch. Good luck with clean up.

I also use a separate hose for gray and black rinse out. Always worried about blow back into the potable hose
Placing quick disconnects on good thinking
Different disconnects and different hoses

Happy Thanksgiving

We have lived full time in Buena Vista/Los Barriles a 1,000 miles from the US boarder for 30 years. It is a sleepy little area on the Sea of Cortez between La Paz and Cabo San Lucas.

We stopped at Petes Camp for the night in July and were the only motorhome on their beach sites. It was on our way home from a 2 month trip through the northwest US visiting national parks and friends. Our total trip was 6,000 miles but 2,000 of that was just getting back and forth from home to the US. Anyhow, we enjoyed Pete's and will use it for a stopping point again.

I would like to take the coach down but the DW is petrified of crossing the border
Easier for you with nexus and green card holding Gringo

Oh well maybe one day
