What about the Geo method? I like that idea--I meant to go buy Calgon today but forgot. I think he adds bleach sometimes.
Thanks for the video! And all the wunderbar advice from everybody.
We'll change the p trap tomorrow. I also ordered hepvo valve from Little House customs--along with a utopia faucet and swivel aerator for the main part of the trailer, new a/c filters, and a towel rod for the bathroom.
I'm seriously thinking about the ceramic toilet that Eddie got. I hate that plastic toilet.
I can't say for SURE its the grey water tank but I really think so. But I think I may have inadvertantly created the problem by having the trailer towed to a nearby RV park and leaving it for a week (we are back now, camping in the area in tents at a BEAUTIFUL park OMG!!) and going over every day to work on the casita
. The casita
is not all that close to where we live and we have nowhere to particularly store it, and I paid the full month as if living there, because he gave me a nice space right up front, and because I don't want to let it sit, I need to learn all about it.
So that week we were gone, I left the a/c on all the time, and both valves open! Naivete. The a/c "froze"--something I had no knowledge of, but was explained to me by several RV owners. We turned it off and condensate went off for a few hours! Some dripped on my table but I was in the trailer and wiped it up immediately. So I won't do that again!
So I think I had indavertantly dried out the p trap.
And I noticed today when I went back, I had the grey valve open. I think I'm gonna be making myself a checklist soon.
The main cabin smells fine though. I'm still in the process of cleaning it thoroughly. First I used branch basics (best natural based enzyme cleaner, which is so safe it's edible), then I use Biokleen oxygen
powder. I haven't done under the cushions yet, and I plan to steam clean the cushions and leave them out in the sun this weekend for a day. Then steam clean the walls lightly (they look clean)--and definitely vacuum and steam clean the floor.
Sorry for all this trivial detail. LOL.
Anybody have a favorite shower curtain for the casita
bathroom? You don't really need one though, do you?
