RPR, you must have 'light water' where you are from. At 70 degrees all I have ever heard of is 8.32/8.33/8.34 pounds per gallon. That is from my 40 years in the water business. :)

I just redid our 2018 28.5 RSTS 5th wheel with the self leveling Alpha product. I cleaned the old areas with Simple Green and a tooth brush and was amazed how well it cleaned up the old stuff.
