Same for an RV.....
Pay attention and don't cross contaminate or use same hose for potable and waste.


Weeellllll,, a long time ago, back when things were different, and I was a heck of a lot younger. We used to have parties with large quantities of beer in things called Kegs. If you went into the bathroom, at this type or party, and someone was using the toilet then the sink was another option.

Don't worry anyone. Those old houses have been either torn down or remodeled.

4x4van -What is so terrible about the pipes being in view? Do you want me to put pants and underwear on my TT o that you can't see its private parts. Do you get disturbed when you drive past a field and see a cow taking a **** without using an outhouse?
I think we have more important things to get upset about.

NFPA 1192 covers plumbing and other systems in RVs. Doesn't prohibit grey water emptying into the black tank if that's what you meant. Sure wouldn't want to share "fresh" water and "waste" water. [emoticon]

Methinks too many people are "disgusted" by too many petty little things nowadays...

I understand what the OP is commenting about - I can see where having the waste tanks and the freshwater tank sharing a compartment can be both convenient; and a source of contamination. I sure wouldn't leave my white water hose and sewer hose laying together; but it's probably not too hard to keep things apart with plastic bins? And if the freshwater fill is inside that same compartment, giving it a spritz of bleach before connecting the hose would be prudent?

I was actually being facetious, since the OP seemed so aghast at the sewer outlet and the city water inlet being located near each other. But yes, if you could put at least underpants on your trailer, I'd appreciate it.[emoticon]

legitimate question for the OP: how was the wet bay...fresh water intake and gray/black tank discharge...arranged in your 5’er?
