You are right about the hot water. It scared me the first time, but now I know to wait for the gas. Do you know where the panel is to monitor the black and grey tanks? I don't see it anywhere. I have a 2005 Sport 165. Also, what do you tow with? My Subaru is too small to take it any further than an hour or so and only on flat surfaces.

I looked at pix of your make/model on teh intarwebs and it looks like you haven't got a monitoring panel. If you have one it will be integrated with the water pump switch.

No real advice from me about a new tow. Anything with 1/4 ton capacity or better will pull your trailer easily.

I have an 08. My panel is just inside the door on the wall. It seems to be that the Blackwater sensors are never correct so don't trust them. I just look down the toilet. I used to tow with a Ford Escape with the V6. It was all the vehicle could handle. I now tow with suburban. Big difference. No more white knuckle driving. It wasn't an engine thing it's a weight thing. It was like the tail wagging the dog. An escape is lightweight. An explorer sized vehicle should tow it fine. If you haven't get a WDH and if towing with a smaller vehicle get a sway bar. It helps a lot.
