I'm interested for the exact same reason. I have a septic hookup at home, but it's a bit too far away for normal hoses; the Sewer Solution seems like it would be perfect. I've read that you can even hook the SS hoses to the appropriately sized PVC and it works great.

I think you're right on here; I don't think the backflush would do as good as an on-board tank flush (which I also have), but it might be useful in a pinch.

AugerN:
I don't have anything to add as far as a time-saving measure, but I do have a question from a health standpoint. You are not planning on keeping your fresh water hookup hose in the same storage bag as your sewer hookup items are you?

It has been stressed to me over the years always keep fresh water items and grey/black water items separated. And it is good practice to develop a procedure you stick to so as to eliminate any possibility of cross-contaminating your fresh water. I do it by forcing myself to hook/unhook water connections first, electric and cable next, and sewer last, carefully washing after the sewer items before touching anything else.

That probably wasn't clear in the post but the SS water hose stays with that kit in sewer kit storage bag. It has the dedicated back flow preventer which distinguishes it front the other hose and I will also add some red tape as well.

For my next mod I ordered a Clarion DVD brake bypass circuit from Ebay. And now having seen how easy it is to access the wiring harness, I will soon add an amp to power the in ceiling speakers and a small sub.

Stupid water pump (stupid owner). See my thread: https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f1...sue-28846.html

Update on the Clarion issue. So I figured out to remove the faux wood panel to expose the nest of wires behind the Clarion. Turns out that the mass of wires was heavy enough to made loose the connection of the wire harness to the Clarion and causing it to turn off with every bump. So I used wires ties to take some of the pressure off of the mass of wires and more importantly to tightly secure the wiring harness to the body of the Clarion. I will try to post a pic later as the CG wifi isn't that good apparently since I've tried 5 times so far! Anyway, a 5 hour pressure test on a bumpy road went well and the unit didn't turn off once. Also making sure all connections were tight has resolved my camera issue and it works as prescribed (even underway).

AugerN try this Sewer accessory for your downhill flow issues, I use mine anytime I have full hook ups:

Yahoo........congratulations. One of my dealer's techs told me "the factory builds them and we (the dealer) finish them".
From all the posts it seems that we (the owners) do the real finish work.
Enjoy,

So in heavy rains last night the rear slide let some water in. It was an issue with the vertical rubber gasket on either slide had slid down and when extended, didn't really provide a seal. I had noticed that the side slide had this happen often (enough so that I check it and have to put it back in the right spot every time I extend the side) but hadn't noticed it with the rear. Brought the rear slide in a bit and pushed the gaskets back to the right spot and extended the slide. Rains continued but no more leak. It would be nice if those stayed put. I may have to look and see if it's something that can be secured, glued, zip tied, duct taped, something...

Funny story: Our 10 year old loves to cook and loves spicy foods. So we brought fresh jalapeno peppers to stuff with cream cheese and grill. Turns out that this is a bad idea in a confined space. They began to slice and deseed the peppers and suddenly all 5 of us start coughing and eyes began to burn. Not as bad as when I've was sprayed with OC (pepper) spray but definitely not fun in a small space...

We went through the same experience with a "Sirius ready "radio versus you expect when you buy a car. After seriously considering installing the antenna and trying to find the discontinued module, we opted instead to use our Sirius Internet radio add-on option to our car's subscription. Couple bucks a month more. Then we use our iPhone through the "iPod audio input" on the Clarion radio and just manage usage in our data plan when driving and connect through Wi-Fi if available at the campground. A lot easier and cheaper!
