Pat,

I would avoid using your inside sink faucet as a connection point (water source) for the black tank wand, even with an intermediate hose. Good rule of thumb is to keep black tank tasks/products away from fresh water tasks/products whenever possible.

X2... plus IMO you won't get the pressure you will need from the sink.

Okay, I think I'm set for the time being. I bought the Rhino hose kit, plus an extension hose, a hydro flush, rubber gloves, a clean out wand, military surplus gas mask, aluminum hard hat, and a biohazard suit. Ok, I'm kidding about the last three items. Oh yeah, and I have a plastic storage tub to store all of these goodies in. Is there anything I'm forgetting to get?

Thanks to all for ur help

Patrick

Yes, you need to train your wife to do this after convincing her that it is woman's work! I have not achieved that yet.

If I lived another hundred years, it wouldn't be long enough to convince her that it should be her job, but that's okay she certainly takes on plenty of other unpleasant task and I guess if I'm stuck with the sewer that's a pretty small chore in comparison...:-)

Treatments. I always follow a dump and flush with a treatment with a little water to slosh around in there and ready for the next trip. Personally I think this greatly reduces build up and tank odors from becoming a problem.

I've been using the TST orange single doses with good results. Had some of the eco chemicals which did nothing for the odors.

Always make sure you have several gallons of water sloshing around in your tanks when traveling. This will assure that anything on the inside will be loosened by the agitation.
