Ependydad, that's why it is so much easier to just hard plumb them together and hook up one hose all the time. Less time and effort all around. If you add all the time you've spent connecting hoses, etc, you could have hard plumbed it 2 or 3 times.

True. I'm just nervous about the distance and slope getting the rear to the front (over the axles). If it was just gray water, I'd probably be less concerned- but it's a black tank back there.

Plus, I'm not handy.

Rotated front tires and got an oil change. Ordered a gel memory foam mattress and will change out today.

If the rear is a black tank, I would NOT do it either.

Yep. There's a black tank back there for the 1/2-bath.

There's also a gray tank back there, but it's only hooked up to my outdoor kitchen sink. I could likely go for many many months before it gets filled.

Picked up the smoked, tempered door glass from our local glass company. It had to be ordered because of it being tempered, took about a week. Installed it today. Now we can see what is going on outside our door and it's a perfect match to the rest of the glass on our unit.

The Doctors say my knees are shot and I don't want to give up camping so we bought a Park Model home. That means selling the 2015 IKSS that we've only had a year, but I can no longer set it up without a lot of pain. Anyone looking for this particular camper can get a great deal on this one and I'm throwing in all my camping gear with it. I enjoyed spending a lot of time doing the mods I found on this forum and I'll sure miss it. You are a bunch of great people for all the help you've given me and I still can't get over how resourceful and helpful the people on this forum are. Thanks to every one of you for great advice, tips and your friendship.

Nope I figure the buyer would love to have them as much as I did. I still can't believe you and OC haven't patented those things yet.
