After looking at how the dump valve setup sits "directly" behind the left wheel I guess it's for when these %$#@ Chinese tires fail and rips the dump valve off. You can shut off the poopy over by the outlet on the other side. Other than that I'm not sure why they would put an upstream shut off on the black tank drain pipe. Oh well. I believe I will have my son build a small steel mesh piece to mount just in front of the dump valve assy to keep debris and stuff (tire fragments) from ripping through the valve assy. All in all, I'm very pleased with the unit at this point. Other than those %$#@ Chinese tires. At least they put Nitrogen in them. Isn't that kind of like Premium fuel in a Yugo?? Hopefully, I'll get a couple of years out of them and then find me some Maxxims. Only one thing that has me a little puzzeled; one the radio unit ( I pulled it out to check cables, etc.) I cannot receive an am station for squat. And we are in the metro area of the Mighty Mox, KMOX 1120 to you folks. The antenna has a coaxial cable (as in tv coax) plugged into it and it goes up through to the roof. Only have the new digital style mushroom antenna?? FM is fine, but AM is non-existent. Tried with tv off and booster on, nothin but roaring static. May have to call FR on this one. Love the power tongue jack and power stabilizers. Jury is still out on the power awning. Convenient as the dickens, just seems a little lightweight. Okay, weather permitting we're off for a weekend trial run end of the month. I'll take pictures if anything falls off. LOL
I think my toyhauler is basically built the same as your BH, but I'm with you on the awning, its not very taughnt when deployed and I don't see a way to divert water run off, except bending one of the arms down slightly? Also, my outside radio control LCD screen has went blank, still can control the radio from the outside, I just can't see what I'm doing, lol? Does yours have that feature? I can not get an a.m station either, but don't care. Also, I can not use my IPOD in the usb port, but can in the inline port????
