If you're draining from your waste tanks, yeah, people don't need to see that. But then you should only be doing that if your tanks are clean. I know my tanks are clean from when I winterized them, so it's clean, clear water coming out of my waste valves (except for a little red right at the beginning from the non-toxic RV antifreeze).

But your other low point drains should be fine. It might look a bit wasteful, but it's just fresh water diluted with a little bleach. If you use too much bleach, I also wouldn't let it just drain on the ground until I could get it diluted enough or let it sit long enough for the chlorine in the bleach to evaporate (hard to do in a closed tank, but chlorine bleach doesn't last long when exposed to sunlight in an open container).

Wasteful looking is what I'm worried about. Live in CA where we have a drought and water usage restrictions. Thanks for your advice.

Yeah, I know a thing or two about droughts. We are just coming out of one that lasted over a decade in Texas. I don't know what to say about sanitizing while conserving water, those two don't really go together as far as I know. Other than maybe skip it?

I forgot to mention that we don't drink the water from our trailer. At the beginning of each season, we exchange a 5-gallon water cooler bottle and refill it each trip at $1 each fill. So sanitizing the tanks is not a show stopper for us.

I do want to sanitize as we have never done it to our new trailer which is 6+ months old already. Just don't want complaints from neighbors IYKWIM. 😉

Not a show stopper for us either. We drink from filtered water out of spigot and I bought a Brita pitcher.

Not much action on this thread so here goes...

Today, once again, I looked out my window to see our beautiful new 23RBM sitting in the driveway next to the house and longing for the day (in the very near future I hope) to be looking at her sitting in the woods at a forest service park.

Replaced the bathroom faucet. Was too small to wash hands.

Getting ready to make my second cup and continue surfing as I do every morning. It is going to be another hot one here today on the Florida Gulf Coast, but my 2 a/c's work well.

Inaugural trip of the season this weekend. Left Thursday came home this morning. Great weekend on the North Fork of the Shoshone. But campgrounds were packed, first time I have ever seen that. Returned home and figured out how to take sliding bedroom doors off. I hate the things. Always helps if you sleep on an idea. Took about 30 minutes. Both doors stored in garage. I hated the fact you had to close door to turn tv. Then if you were in bed and wanted to watch tv you have to close both doors, and every trip to fridge or toilet meant opening door and blocking tv. Well no more. Removed two buttons on trim, removed two screws on trim, unlocked the two pins on top of door, pulled the door out and put trim back on,. Happy Camper!

I think an accordion type door on the support post of the entertainment center would work far better. The columns appear hollow, so you could recess both accordion type doors.
