I also cut reliefs in the bayonet connector as it does not seem to fit on very tight. Now it snaps on like the sewer hose. Also double check all your hose clamps, mine were kind of loose. For all the good reviews, I think they have a lot of room for improvement.

Thermostat is set at 90 in the driveway, A/C is running hard. I hate to let the camper sit in the driveway and everything inside bakes.


I have a Fantastic Fan in the bathroom, does anybody ever keep one turned on all of the time to suck air thru from another roof vent? With the residential fridge I need to make sure it doesn't overheat.

Noticed that the black tank was always draining. So after a good flush ran a scope up the drain and noticed the drain only about halfway closed. Spent the morning pulling the valve out and inspecting. When I pulled the cable out of the guide. Right at the handle the cable has started to birdcage. Got it cleaned up and back together and adjusted enough to work while I get a replacement cable in from Amazon. Will take pics when I go back into replace the cable

Is your old cable braided? The new one I got from Amazon is solid wire.

Found a really nice bumper mount from a fellow member that had removed it. Mounted our Aussie grill on it. Very sturdy design. Really wanted that greasy grill out of the basement.
