Hop on the 5th wheelers forum and ask. They're all experts in the latest models.

Well Tim, I'll quote your post and respond. Yes!

With the bladder (pressure flush) in the washer vent stack (does not go to roof) the water ran freely. But through the drain pipe next to it would back up. So the drain cleaner was poured down the drain pipe and allowed to work it's magic about 24 hours.

So that cleaning process I posted will be performed monthly and before I let it sit again, I'll pour a big bottle of vinegar in the drum and run water in and then stop it and drain it manually. That will put vinegar solution in the traps and line. Sort of like winterizing with the pink stuff. Apparently, vinegar and baking soda is still the preferred washer / sink drain solution.

One thing I read and believe is true, is that if powdered or other soap collects and dries in the lines, it becomes hard and even if it breaks up with an auger it can move to the next bend and get stuck. So you want that stuff to dissolve.

So that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

You know when you are tired enough that your eyes are starting to cross and you look at the lower case letters C and L -- and your weary brain sees a D instead. Steve, I thought you were poking a dog in number 5.

It may be time for a short nap.

My question Barb is, how'd that dog get in Steve's dryer vent line? Do you think he was drying it on the spin cycle.

They do want a lot in the 5th wheel 2nd room with bunk beds and a second bath too.

They will need a brand that can handle extreme rain and cold weather. Any ideas or input? We went straight to class A's :-)
Colleen,

I've been told that DRV makes the best 5er to full time in. I've never even been inside one, so I'm just repeating what someone told me. You might ask this question on the fifth wheel forum here at IRV2.

When you're as tired as I am NOTHING makes sense the first time you read it. I've been trying to get all the excess stuff I bought in no sales tax Oregon out of Smarty and the Moho, I off loaded the trike, kayak and the trike rack, reoriented and re-leveled the Moho and made 5 trips up the hill they call a driveway. It's at least a 20 degree incline and it's actually sunny and warm here today. This old lady is POOPED!

Oh and I was reading my mail that finally caught up with me and my South Dakota driver's license expired on 5/2. I sure hope they have a grace period or I'll have to apply for a Washington license and probably have to take the friggin test again.

Time for some well deserved rest Barb.

And once rested, let's hear about the new digs at DDs.

Think we have evolved Marty?

I can't wait to see the next big ponder, debate, suggestion or problem from this bunch!
