Or just hard plumb the system and never worry about it again.
One 3" connection point and two valves. There are several
posts about this and it is also inexpensive. A search under my
name should locate the post.

2gwright, the plumbing looks nice but how the heck do you pull the black valve? I have a hard time the way it sits, my pup is low.

Do you think the Parts I posted for the Gray Tank mod will work?

It's a little awkward of an angle but not enough to purchase the remote handle kit
that is available for these valves. I had to rotate the valve that way because the
jack was installed just aft of the valve and is in the way.


I did not look at your parts list but I got the double valve on Amazon and the PVC
pipe at home depot.

cleight i think the parts you listed might not work.
the amazon 1 might be ok but the amazon 2 needs to thread to the outlet on the pup and the lowqes pic dont come up. if your lowes dont have my parts list in black (abs) black paint works fine.

Spurticus,
Do you also have a hard time disconnecting the hose without the ad parter trying to unthread? Mine does but I think it's because I really don't have a great grab power with my right hand ( disabled) was thinking of plying it on but not sure I want to. Going to lowes tonight n see if they have some kinda 1 1/2 nut I can use as a jam nut.

I just hold it while disconnecting the hose. No issues overall.

Just got back from taking our HW277 out on our first trip and found some issues. Has anyone had issues with water leaking out around the bottom of the toilet and under the bathroom itself onto the floor?

We have that issue. The source of our problem is when we fill the gray tank, it no longer backs up onto the shower, instead it flows under the shower floor and across the floor. In order to fix, the repair place said that they would have to remove the bath to get to it. Since we were no longer under warranty, it is not worth it to fix, we just use an external waste tank.

If you are under warranty, i would get the dealer to look at it.
