I dumped my tanks today, and since I have full hookups, I had to fill my grey tank before I dumped. I kind of overdid the filling, and water backed up in my bathtub. You wouldn't believe all the nasty stuff that broke loose from the grey tank walls.

After I got the grey tank drained and the tub cleaned out, I checked the fill level indicator panel. It now shows only one light on when empty. It's been two when empty for a long time. I guess I kind of cleaned the grey tank by overfilling it.

Other than that, I'm using the stovetop to slow-simmer a pot full of country style pork ribs I got on sale today ($1.79 a pound). They will be done shortly, and fall off the bone tender. A little drizzle of bbq sauce is all they will need. The smell is really making me hungry.

Took my 6 year old son with me to finally swap out the remainder of the incandescent lights with LED's and do some adjustments to my WHD. It never fails that my son has to go poop when we are out at the storage lot which is in the middle of nowhere! lol

Waxed the front end, filled propane tank, installed BAL Stabilizer Locking Arms (big difference in the amount of movement we now have) and a couple of other odds and ends in preparation to leave on Friday for 10 days of camping.
