I don't think so, we fulltimed in one spot for 1 year in Canton Tx in 2016 and have been camped here at Northshore RV park in Emory, Tx for this past year. No traveling at all, just finishing building a log home about a mile down the road.

Sounds fun on the cabin Royce! I'm not sure on the tank. I wonder if you could screw down the flange?

You can't glue the PVC plumbing directly to the material used in the rotational molded tanks. They use a hub inserted with butyl gutter seal around it into the hub on the drain end of the tank and use a screw type hose clamp to tighten the fitting in the hub. Then glue 3" termination to the pvc hub adapter or use the 3" to 1 1/2" hub adapter for the 1 1/2" pvc termination plumbing and valves. See pictures below.

No, This did not happen to us. With me still working in the RV industry I know how most things are built. I have added a quarter turn valve to our fresh water overflow to prevent the siphoning when filling and I have also dropped our underbelly in the drop section of the Z frame to replace the 3" gate valve. I also had to lower the underbelly and trace wiring for the brake lights and turn signals through the underbelly and discovered wiring that was pinched in between the I-beam and the zig zag cross members of the frame. Wires were pinched and raw copper was touching the frame shorting out fuses for lights in a matter of minutes. Even the auto resetting type of fuse wasn't working. Fuse was under the hood of our Tow Vehicle and a pain to replace. I have quite a bit of RV knowledge from experience. From codes and compliance, mid line inspector, end line inspector, shipping at the door to re-greening of units and even the service and warranty side of things.
