Underbelly of RV full of Blue water

Thank you, Paul. As one of those "early responders," I have certainly been pondering my response throughout the day today. Life doesn't allow for do-overs, but if it did, I certainly would have been more empathetic in my response. I would have let her know that there are many here with broad RV experience and there would likely be some help coming, as the day has shown.

I apologize that I did not represent well the genuinely friendly and helpful community I have found here.

One thing I would not do is refrain from clarifying (as gently as I know how) the limited scope of this forum. It's no different than a Ford owner posting a question about their vehicle on a Chevy forum. If we accommodate everyone and everything we lose the distinctiveness that makes this site such an valuable resource for information about all-molded fiberglass towables.

One of the bullet points in this article is:
Install "belly pans," underbody panels that cover components and smooth airflow

And there is this comment in the Additional Methods of Drag Reduction section of this paper:
One method of preventing air from getting caught in mechanical devices under the car is to incorporate underside paneling

It probably does not make a huge difference on a trailer but it might be best for the OP to replace it after other repairs are done, for other reasons as well (There, I stayed on topic ) )

I don't think I'll ever apologize for trying to be helpful even if that help is just pointing to a more appropriate forum.

I just checked out IRV2.com and searched the membership. Just like here, it depends on how the profile is filled out, but quickly searching I found: 3882 Keystone Owners,
11 own the Carbon model.

It's doubtful I'd ever have a solution to a problem for someone with a trailer that has a 12' garage and triple slides. YMMV

She had a problem . She didn't like the advice given.
For one thing, few of us have the type of sewer system she was asking advise on. She did need to seek another forum. And it sounded like they needed an immediate solution
Sadly she went off in a huff
