Clear elbow stays on discharge and is actually sheet metal screwed on so it can't come off and cap is put on it. Hoses are in storage tubes mounted under trailer right next to discharge. Rear discharge is capped and hard plumbed to front. Factory rear discharge handle is left open and the one I added up front is closed. I stay in one place and open all 3 handles in the sequence, Black tank then flush til clear water comes out, then galley tank and grey tank together or as quick as I can open one after the other.

Lou - is that a vent on the bottom of your FW as shown in the 4th picture ?

Yes, well, its a drain anyway.

Here are some more with the locks installed.

The one with the Eyebolt through it is the folding ladder. I wanted "positive retention" on that puppy. The trays are 4 inch rain gutter with "internal" end plates. They are symmetric and not sold at Home Depot; only Lowes.

I will get a photo of how they are put together tomorrow.
They are glued and pop riveted to the gutter.

The handles are pop riveted on with backing washers.

MMM... looking at that last photo I need to check that ferrule again. Looks like I only got one crimp on it. My chest is black and blue from using it to hold one handle of that crimping tool. Those 3/16 ferrules need 2 men and a boy to crimp; try it laying on your back...

You know more about mechanicing than any pilot I ever met.

One pilot told me once "There's them that flies em and there's them that fixes em"

True - having taxied Boeing 727's and DC -10's I had always visualized being able to make the takeoff, but not sure about the landing

That is the vinyl covered cable and I used 3/16 Ferrules. I needed security. I had visions of the trays popping the caps off and sliding out into traffic.
