RE: Avoid Silverton Colorado

There are a lot of trails in the area. Very unique and popular place. The trail riders will adapt to enjoy the area. Rental companies may have to move outside the city limits. Pat

RE: Do you sanitize your black tank?

About a year ago, I needed the black tank dump valve replaced. Found a mobile mechanic that would do the work. He said his rate would depend on how "dirty" he got and gave the price range. He could not come out for several days. I had the "rotary spray nozzle" that had been plugged up for several years. The RV at that time had a straight shot down thru the toilet to the tank. I had the wand that one sticks down thru the toilet. Just hadn't used it in a few years. So, I flushed and flushed with the trailer tongue as high as I could get it and as low as I could get it. I had crystal clear water coming out of the black tank. So, I filled the tank up one more time. When the mobile mechanic showed up, I dumped the one last time and he was very happy to see clear water in the line. There was still a mild odor in the tank. To wrap things up, that wand puts out a lot of pressure and easily reaches the roof, sides and all 4 corners of the black tank. I doubt the rotary rinse can compare. I do add product that does help with the smell.

RE: RGV

Last year, there is a "newspaper" full of activities within the RGV rv parks. You are welcome to visit any of the events at any rv park. I don't remember if it included other places of interest. Maybe someone will jump in and clarify. Need a dentist? Pat

RE: Building fence post sewer hose storage. Need 5.5" caps

My old set had the rain gutter you are using. Lowes and HD had a different brand and shape in stock. I used them to support the sewer hose after setting up. Currently, I purchased plastic 3x4" downspout and cut out one side for the sewer support. I'll keep looking for the old style gutter as it fit well in the fence post when stored. Pat I used a router to cut slots in the bottom to act like a spring. Short screws act as pins that go through holes in the cap to hold in place. A length of vinyl gutter acts as slide out tray. https://i.imgur.com/cD7SZbo.jpg?1 width=300 https://i.imgur.com/LbItexQ.jpg?1 width=300 https://i.imgur.com/HJBXKbm.jpg?1 width=300 https://i.imgur.com/vvkEQAl.jpg?1 width=300 https://i.imgur.com/fUx9aIw.jpg width=300

RE: Building fence post sewer hose storage. Need 5.5" caps

Thanks for the additional images! I'm going to order parts through Lowes. The hangers will be easy to build. Thanks!!! Pat Using 5" square plastic post. Can't find 5.5" plastic caps.... Interested in other ideas for different cap material. Thanks! Pat Is this what you are looking for?? We got ours and post at lowes. https://i.imgur.com/kLmWcT8.jpg width=640 This looks exactly like what I had on the previous rv. The cap was large enough to put the hinge on inside the cap and still had enough room for the cap to close over the post. Are your caps 5" or 5.5"? All I can find are labeled 5" caps. They are 5" caps, they have a slight modification to the bottom to close. https://i.imgur.com/iUM26MJ.jpg width=640 As to the Valterra A04-5094BK EZ Hose Adjustable Hose Carrier - 50" to 94" it is only 4-1/2" in diameter so most likely going to get the elbow fitting in the tube. ALL of my stinky Slinky parts go in the fence post. https://i.imgur.com/OLYgoTH.jpg width=640

RE: Building fence post sewer hose storage. Need 5.5" caps

Get a piece of aluminum flat stock - flashing material, and a pair of 6" duckbills. Cut a square, snip the corners, bend a hem all around and then bend 90's at all 4 sides. Or if you know somebody like me who has a brake, get them to bend you up a couple pieces. Attachment is easy to prevent them from falling off. I may have to do this. I hope I can get a plastic cap to work. Thanks!

RE: Building fence post sewer hose storage. Need 5.5" caps

I have a screw through the hollow bumper and rubber cap at one end. The other end has a Camco magnetic mount cap that has lugs to attach to the waste hose. 1/4 turn to lock the cap to the end of the hose, and the magnet holds the cap closed to the bumper. Even if the cap is bumped off the end of the bumper, a significant portion of the hose would have to be pulled out of the bumper to lose the cap. Thanks for this idea!

RE: Building fence post sewer hose storage. Need 5.5" caps

Tired of losing bumper end caps, I just taped a 'sticky back' piece of velcro onto opposite sides of the bumper, then ran a strip between them that could be pulled off and put back on...in my mind, the point was 'keep the sewer hose in', not 'impress the neighbors with my craftsmanship' Another idea, since you're using a plastic tube, could be to simply drill a hole in the top and drop a 5-inch-long bolt with a washer into it...wouldn't bounce out...and, if that's the worry, tap a hole on both top and bottom and get a bolt and nut long enough to actually thread the screw onto the bottom end...again, may not be the prettiest but should work On the previous rv, I had a long 1/4" bolt that did as you described. If I lost the cap (to keep dust out), the bolt would keep the hose in. On this new rv, there is no rear bumper.....I hope I don't bump anything.....
