Sounds like a good way to clean the inside of the tank.

Thanks for the info!!!

I'm not the originator of the ankle weight idea...I saw that on the hose of a neighbor with a Class-A at a campsite this year.

We love Colorado, too....I got stationed here in 2000 then deployed out many time for Enduring Freedom/Iraqi Freedom until they let me retire in 2004. We're, originally, from Maine but not many jobs back home and the Colorado winters ROCK compared to Maine winters! :-) (We do try to get back home every year or two to visit our Mainiac family.)

Instead of Ziploc bags or ankle weights, I used a 3' section of old slinky hose and cut plywood caps and screwed them in the ends of the slinky after filling it about 3/4 full of pea gravel. Works great for holding the slinky elbow in the donut.

Best out there short of some new technology that is not quite ready for prime time yet!

Love it, that is a great hose!

For weight on the hose connection I just lay one of the spring bars from the WD hitch across the plastic fitting.
