I'm a visual guy too. Can you please post a picture.

Over 65 you don't smell any more. It's like wine you mellow out. But 90 gals vs. 45 is a nice and easy solution.

You don't smell anymorebecause your nose stops working. It's those around you that notice the difference!

It's when your hearing goes that you really have to be careful. Just because you can't hear yourself fart, doesn't mean that others can't either.

I finally installed the new waste valve on our 36FL. I also took out about 6 inches of the original pipe to ease the angle of the sewer hose when the sewer hookup is behind the trailer.





I'll let you know how it works out tomorrow when I equalize the gray tanks.

Steve: Nice job engineering your own fix and posting those pictures. I'm sure it will work out for you.


Even more interesting to me is how to get multiple pictures attached in the same post. Please post or private mail how to do this, as many of us have fixes we'd like to share.

I'm still trying to figure out how to do just one picture.

To add images to your postsyou'll need to have the image on a host site like photo bucket or your own website if you have one</span>. Then you'll need to use what's called "BBcodes" to make the image appear in your post</span>.</span>
<div style="text-align: left;">Step 1: Locate the image you want for your</span>post</span>, right click on the image and select "</span>copy image url"</span>
<div style="text-align: left; : rgb251, 251, 253; ">Step 2: Then, in youpost, place the cursor where you want the image to appear and type the bbcode:<div style="text-align: left; : rgb251, 251, 253; ">
<div style="text-align: left; : rgb251, 251, 253; ">[img]paste_the_copied_image_url_here[/img]<div style="text-align: left; : rgb251, 251, 253; ">
<div style="text-align: left; : rgb251, 251, 253; ">That's it!.. If you want to add more than one image just repeat the process for each image. You may want to resize large images to about 320x240 so they are large enough to see but won't require you to scroll to see the whole image<div style="text-align: left; : rgb251, 251, 253; ">When you type the BBcode there are no spaces and the "Enable BBcodes" box must be checked before you click "postreply"<div style="text-align: left; : rgb251, 251, 253; ">It's hard to explain it here so if you need more help send me a message and we'll go through it together.

So installing this valuve forces the gray water into the other tank? Does this fill both tanks completely and not back up in the shower? I just picked up my 36FL last thursday and do not plan on installing a washer. I want to utilize the 90 gal capacity. Thanks for any comment you can give me.

We have a 36RL and the additional valve worked like a charm! Last weekend on a four day camping trip we closed the "outboard" valve and opened both the grey and galley valves. We were able to almost fill both tanks before we left the park. One was full and the other was at 2/3. My goal is to see how far I can go until the water backs up into the shower but haven't seen that happen yet.

Hi Dave. Had one on the boat when we went to
The Bahamas, worked like a charm. Don't think we need one on the rig since we have the wash down port. I think you will bw wasting valuable diesel money. My opinion only

I wanted to eliminate the bigger sewer hose because the smaller hose is easier to store. I also wanted to be able to pump up hill.

Works like a dream. Just be careful, after you pump up hill. Gravity! Good luck Dave
