Hello from Hollywood......MD!

Greetings folks!
I've been to all the posts of the Roo forum as we worked through the purchase of our 2011 Roo21SS. I'm an engineer and former mechanic and this girl has been sitting two years. For the next few weeks we'll be cleaning, repairing and bringing her back up to the condition she was in when she left the pouch. Have to do some work to the Mounty (our temp TV) to add a cooler and trans temp gauge. I'll have lots of questions I'm sure, and from reading all the posts you are a great bunch at sharing your experiences! To start I've two...
1) The fresh water tank looks like it has black mold growing on spots inside. It was winterized and full when we got it. Do you have a RVer fix for this other than either bleach or replacement? If replacement, any idea of the model # of the tank?

2) My 6500 watt generator trips when running her. I've read and confirmed that the 4 wire plugs only pull from one leg of the 240 volt circuit. Any thoughts on wiring the two legs in parallel?

I'll likely have dump station questions too so I don't look like a moron or take too much time, but will hold until I search some more.

Safe journeys Robin & Gina

Welcome from California Maryland As far as the tank I think I would put 2 or 3 cups of bleach in it fill it up about 3/4 drive around for awhile park it fill it with water the rest of the way, run all your faucets then let it set over night. I think that will take care of your mold problem inside the tank. Good luck

Aceinspp, I have a 120/240 30A plug. 4 wire. I want to tie the two 120 legs together in parallel and feed it to the hot leg of the 3 way plug. That should provide 120 at a full 30 Amps. I just wonder how the regulator on the generator will react....

Fellow campers - thanks for the warm greetings!

you need to get an adapter that goes from the 4 wire gen outlet to a 3 wire 30 amp outlet
