Hi, My name is Dutch, and I am the happy new owner (one week!) of a 2005 Casita
LD. I am sooo happy to have stumbled on this wonderful community, as I have lots of questions. (Please bear with me if these seem really basic. I'm 100% new to this...)
1. If I can only afford a sway bar OR an electronic brake controller at this time, which should I spend my money on? (Please don't say both. Just not in the cards right now.) I guess I should say my TV is a Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab with a six foot bed.
2. I have some trepidation re the whole black/gray tank dump station procedure. Do I need a tank wand, or is it an optional thing? Do I need chemicals or are they a luxury? I've seen in threads mention of a collar or adapter I may need at dump stations. Is this something I need or should have? If so, is using it self-explanatory? Does the poop (pardon my language) just flow out due to gravity, or do you have to do something? How do you know when the tank is approaching full? How do you know when it's clean?
I want to put together a plastic tub with containing everything to do with the toilet and holding tank. What should be in this tub?
3. When I hook up a hose from a house to mi Casita
, do I need a pressure regulator or is that being overly cautious? I really would rather not buy one now if it's not necessary.
Thanks for any help or tips you can provide.
PS I would love to go to the Hat Creek gathering, but the timing just doesn't work. Is there a way via this community to track down a Casita
owner in the Sonoma area who might be willing to show me some of this stuff?
