I did my first black tank dump and clean today
It wasn't that bad, except the spot I was in is actually intended for the arrivial of a Kamping Kabin, and the sewer stub was about a foot higher than my dump valve. I had been making like an inch worm with the sewer hose all week for my grey water. The black worked the same, and I am happy to report I was not treated (arr arr) with a mess.
I pulled the valve (After closing the grey) and waited for it to glub away, inchworming as needed.
Couple questions tho..
the Wand. I am not sure I used it correctly.. I just went with the most logical approach. I have one of those "Johnny Chocks" and I put it in the hole, letting the water run for a minute or two to flush most of the hose and tank, then I stuck the wand into the hole and sort of rotated it around, and changed the elevation as I did. More flushing.
Is this correct?
The black tank is.. well, BLACK... and I couldn't see if I actually got all the solids out.
What is the best way to do this? (I have telescoping mirror, but it is small.. does anyone use one?
Oh, the former owner (I think) had a clever idea. He put a hose thread on the kitchen sink, and there is a short length of hose that goes from sink to toilet. No opening windows
and dragging hoses about.
Anyway, it was relatively untraumatic. It took me an hour to strike this morning, as I was going slow and wanted to do it correctly.
Spending all day yesterday sorting my bins for better organization helped a lot. All my stuff is now organized as my PA system is, but with different details.
I have been doing that for awhile.. there is no better hurry motivator than spending til the wee hours in the am in a stinky bar and only wanting it packed up and gone so I can go to bed.
Anyway, all stuff is stowed in the cubbies as it will stay, and my bin count has gone from 4 to 2, + a rolling tool box.
I can actually get IN the trailer for a pee stop or to make a sammich or take a nap on the road without unloading anything now. YAY!
