Broken gray/black holding tank outlet strap self tapping bolt! Look out! 264BH
Made the long, bumpy trip from I-87 to I-84 to I-81 to I-80 to stay at (an unnamed, we won't be returning to/or recommending to friends) CG in PA, then left the 264BH and drove the rest of our way to OH for a family get-together for the 4th. Had a great time seeing the family! Came back to our AWESOME home on wheels, checked the monitors and found the black and gray were 2/3rd's full so I went out to hook up and dump. ... found that the very lame, weak, unacceptable strap holding our outlet for our tanks had lost a self-tapping screw head at some point during our initial drive to PA. After checking the initial installation and sub-(my)standard, I realized that if we had driven any further, all of the seals and seams to both our grey and black water tanks would have started to leak ... further more, the way the "retaining strap" was set up, it was destined to rub through the plumbling at some point in travel. While investigating underneath I also found that all of the monitor wires for the holding tanks were dangling dangerously close to snagging anything as low as the stabilizing jacks. SOOO .... I tied all of the wires up around the axle, with "wiggle room" and I drilled out a larger sized hole and replaced the broken self tapping screw with a size over and after wards, wrapped a padded and taped buffer between the plumbing and the strap. Just wanted to let you all know to check that.
Otherwise, (minus the "less than great" CG), it was another great week of camping!
