Didn't try that although I've heard of it. You might be correct, however I had another TV, hooked it up and the buzz bent away

A slightly better solution to avoid the ground loop audio issue, is to get rid of the analog audio cables altogether, and use an optical audio cable from the TV to the back of the iRV-66.
Feeding the cable through along the path taken by the other cables was a bit of a pain (I used some coax-ax, which is much stiffer than an optical cable, to feed through, then attached one end of the optical cable to the co-ax and pulled it through).
The added benefit is that if the TV station broadcasts surround sound, you now get real 5.1, rather than just stereo/prologic from suitable TV broadcasts (mostly movies)

This weekend we packed up our fiver to travel for the first time since we bought it a year ago. Today it's being moved from our current seasonal site to our new seasonal site a few miles down the road.

I eliminate most of my buzz by partaking less in the adult beverages.

The rear one is black tank for the 1/2 bath, and fairly easy to get to too, so I think I'd just leave that one alone.
That would mean that I'd just have three dump valves for the front hookup, and only need to switch to the other hookup for dumping the rear 1/2 bath (which gets less usage anyway, so doesn't need to be dumped as often)
We have the same set up as you, on our last trip saw a Rockwood Mini that had the 2 dumps connected. We're going to try that on our 8281. When ever possible we use a "Y" at the dump site so we don't have to move the hose.
Asked the owner about construction "he bought it that way"
Any ideas would be great.
