I think you'd succeed in growing bacteria in your tank until you drain it again

Rae, you are already an RV Mutant. Membership is bestowed on all members of the household. You are RVM 158A unless you want to be the primary person who posts here, then you are RVM158 and Bruce is RVM158A. We'll let you two duke that one out.

It will help you to understand what's going on if you'll go back at least 50 pages and read some of the nonsense others have posted. I know a bit more about you from the emails we've exchanged but it would help others if you would tell us a bit about you and your RV.

Click on User CP in the upper left of each page. That will take you to the User control panel. Look in the left column. If you want the RVM avatar click on one of ours and save it to your photo file. Then you can add it when you are asked for it.

Mutants, my great nephew, Brody, brought his mom and dad up to see my mom (his great grandmother). Some of y'all know what a gift he is to us! I can't believe he's 6 now!

More ommms, stepping up the volume. You may need extra hugs, & I'm sending some of those too. I'm glad you're in the best place for Larry at this time.

Ommms!

Well we know my hair isn't on the back of my head...

Again... the snake came out clean as a whistle so I'm still thinkikng whatever it was - It was solid. And I'm betting it was an accumulation of Splendide powdered detergent that dried during the flooring job.

Twist turn push pull with the tank closed off (valve on fitting before the sewer hose connection.) It was extremely effective. Even though my black tank flushed clean using the saniflush, crud was in there, and there were no odors.

I'd say if it's 100 to 150 and you won't miss the money, and they have a system like that, why not. We put a lot of money in these things, and unless you're Tim, couldn't hurt.

Tim... if you do come through Vegas- You can rent a 2018 Lamborghini for $1,200 a day. You and Mary could run the strip a few times in at. Or a Ferrari - you could run across the parking lot and do Magnum PI slide across the hood... And Mary could help you up.

Well my dealeio is that I don't know how it was cared for before I got it, I know that I'm very thorough when I do my draining but I'm thinking I should make sure there isn't any gunk.
