I re-plumbed the faulty atmospheric break/one way check valve for the black tank cleaner in my 344qb. I cut the pipe in the basement and connected the new break check valve there with flex line. Cut out about 10 feet of useless PEX. I don't know why they didnt install it like this in the first place. It works perfectly. It comes stock in the wall beside the toilet in the upper bathroom in my 2013 angled bed model.

I've read something about RVIA code being that the check valve is to be installed higher than the highest drain (usually the bathroom sink). I don't know why- just what I've read.

This would be an issue except this is it's own line and the drain is where the line terminates into ths sprayer nozzle in the black tank. You must have at least 6"rise over where the water comes in and where it terminates. I have 12" rise. I put in the brass heavy duty check valve that should have been standard. I checked fir operation and all is well.
This check valve prevents water flowing back from the black tanks into the water inlet ( which is it's own inlet).

Going to round up material tomorrow to make 2 roll out shelves for gljurczyk basement in his Rockwood 5er. One about 3' square for the driver side and one about 2' square on the passenger side. Will mount garage door rails on the floor due to drain & plumbing hanging down from the ceiling.

Should work good for the old man.

Completed the tedious process of removing old caulk from the roof and applied Eterna Bond tape to the front seam. Will tackle the rear roof seam tomorrow and caulk, caulk, caulk!

Didn't do anything *TO* it, but I did a lot *FOR* it.

Bought a mess of groceries for our trip this weekend! We cook the same way we camp....ain't gonna be no ruffin' it!

Added some items to the bar stock also. Now that we have an icemaker, a free smoothie blender, it's gonna be frozen margarita time!

Anyone here have a drink recipe using frozen berries (blackberries, raspberries, ets.) and maybe rum?

I've got FOUR DAYS off for this weekend!
