What putting this hose on will do for you:

1. Eliminate spilling freshwater while driving
2. Eliminate spilling freshwater while trying to level the TT

I dont ever travel with full tanks, but some campgrounds only have electric and you can fill up freshwater when you pull into the grounds. Thats great but if you have to go down a steep hill to get to your spot you will lose half your water before you get there and get level.

Here's from the bottom... If you line the hose up correctly from the top it wont slip between the floor and the liner on the bottom of the camper..may take a few tries but works out good...

Thanks for putting up the pics of the underside. Haven't had a chance to even look at the trailer this past week.

BlakeB,
Looking at your pictures it appears you have plenty of room to mount an accumulator tank at your pump. They really make a difference on pump cycling. In your second picture where the pump line goes into the blue cold water line would be a perfect spot for the tank. They are really easy to install. Mine, being a little smaller didn't have quite as much room and to shift some hoses around but it fit. I still don't understand their though process behind no vent hose. Just doesn't make good sense, except in their case probably cents.

Blakeb - Good job on the vent hose route fix.
That last photo shows the one line putting a strain on the bottom tank sensor wire, not a good thing. You might want to reroute that line so it doesn't break the wire or make it come loose from the tank sensor.

I noticed that when I was under there installing the new hose and it's actually got more play in it than appears in the picture. I will definitely keep an eye on it and may reroute it eventually.

Accumulator tank? Where did you get yours and was it easy to install?

Im very interested... Do you have pics? Or parts you used? Might be a good start of a new thread. Im sure a lot of people would be interested.
