This weekend I pulled my radio out to try and figure out why I wasn't getting an radio stations to come in. Found out that the antenna wasn't plugged in.

Found both ends right next to each other, plugged them in and had music!

Isolating the pump from the pex with very flexible hose and rubber "feet" under the pump will remove a significant amount of noise.

Do the accumulation tanks work well never knew why folks installed them in RV's if you are connected to public H2O

Got it stuck in the mud. Then it rained like hell this morning. I'm not even gonna try to move it until this ground hardens a little. At least it's where I need it, sorta.

We always keep about 1/4 to 2/3 tank of fresh water in the fresh water tank.


1- Good to have while traveling for "pit stops" along the way so you can flush the toilet.

2- We have had many an experience in parks that provide well water and had power failures or other water issues and guess what......no well pump, no water!!

And yes, the pump does work well. Although the pressure may "surge" its been better than the regular pressure in some parks!

EDIT: My mistake. Read the OP's post too fast and thought he was referring to the fresh water tank.

Orion; I'm having Marathons installed in place of the factory Power Touring tires tomorrow. Did you keep the old tires with the idea that you might sell them or just let the dealer take them? I'm sort of on the fence.

Setup the WDH on my new to me F250. I watched youtube videos for a couple of months till my eyes bled, then pronounced myself ready. I had to drop the ball one hole since the F250 is a bit higher than the F150. I measured front and rear, before and after. I only dropped 1/2" in the rear and rose 1/4" in the front. Looks good in the driveway!

wicked1, the accumulator is only of any value when not hooked up to city water - that is, when you're using the water pump and the fresh water tank. It stores a supply of water at pressure so the pump turns on less often. And its only for the cold water side.

If you're always hooked up to city water, you won't benefit from an accumulator but if you boondock or at least camp without a city water hookup it may be something you want.

I let them deal with them. I don't want to be anywhere around them.

X2 - and IMO, you get more bang for your buck by replacing your stock pump with a high performance one. Like several have said, there are times when park water either goes off-line (well pump breaks) or is so heavily used that you have little to no water pressure. This is where a 1/2 tank of water and a High Performance pump are worth their weight in gold

Some pumps are expensive (like $200 expensive! ) Here is a good one that will not break the bank but still give you 55PSI water flow:
