I did own 2 TC who had the same bathrooms lay out.
But for long time I could not figure out why I am very comfortable taking showers in Fleetwood, but not in Lance.
Finally I took tape measure and check, that not detectable by human eye, the Fleetwood shower pan was 1.5" wider, when in Lance I had the curtain on my back most of the time.


How big is the shower in your Class B conversion?

Do you find it more convenient to hook up to sewer when you get there so there are no issues of full tanks later?


Hooking up the sewer hose upon arrival or later has very little relevance there not being "issues with fill tanks later."

The general consensus in the RV world is to not leave the tank dump valves open full time when you have the poop hose hooked up.

I am just finishing the 2nd one.
The first one had the shower from Lance and it is sold.
For 2nd conversion I bought extended van and put shower from Fleetwood and fitted wet toilet under the sink.
You don't see how big TC is till you try to put the same stuff into van. [emoticon]
As for bellowed - it is speller correction, where it should be beloved.

I wouldn't say that exactly. I would say the general consensus is to leave the black water tank valve closed and only dump it when you need to or are leaving, but I would say most will leave there grey water valve open as there is no issue of toilet paper building a monument in that tank.

There is a term "pyramid of death" who made a lot of forum replies applying to black tanks. I own different RVs for over 30 years and never experienced the phenomena, but I always use lot of water with #2.
Also when I pack to leave while having hookups, I start with filling the toilet with water to the rim and then dumping it.
As I said, I prefer to use Sewer Solution, but when we've been fultiming after house sale, we had 3" hose with dump valves open for 3 months without an issue.

Trip was good. Hooked up twice to drain tanks while there. Only bummer is the hose kept water trapped and now my bin that holds the hose has grey water sloshing around. When we get home tomorrow (2nd trip of the week), I'll clean that out and sanitize it.

In case you did not hear it before - Sewer Solution will avoid such situations.

Because it runs more water down the hose? I have the camco clean out fitting, but didn't use it in this case. Learning as I go. 6 of the last 7 nights have been in the camper fr the Oregon Coast to Lake Cascade in ID.
