Installed a progressive power converter and it didn't work. So now I need to see if they will FedEx me new one since we are leaving on Friday for Grand Canyon.

Yeah, sorry. I saw it and laughed but did not pay it much mind. It was just a thetford type toilet, nothing special per se.

Spent a few hours installing a A/C monitor and a DPDT switch to control the refrigerator in the outside kitchen. This allows me to change from house current to inverter so when traveling the fridge stays running. Click image for larger version

Does this eliminate the need to drop in chemicals in the black tank?

It's not to expensive I've been using it for 15 years and works great and smells better and we love the blue water. Makes it look clean.

The best and only place online is blue streak itself.
Www.Bluestreakchem.net
Like I said before I've been using it for years. Love it. I'm still amazed it's not more widely known about or available other than their website.
You can find it on Amazon but you actually are buying it from Blue streak anyway as a third party seller. I think rvupgradestore has it a few dollars cheaper but they only sell the white one. If you want off white you have to go through blue streak.

What did you do to your camper today?

Actually the best price to buy it is at goshen if your going, otherwise online at the blue streak website
My dealer handles it, bought it there for $59

good opportunity to ask this question "are we the only ones who DON'T use tank chemicals"? I bought them for our first trailer, just because everybody does, so I have the orange stuff, but used it very rarely and now don't at all, ......to flush is two seconds or less,.......we don't have an odor problem and don't find it necessary, .......I can't believe we're the only ones doing this...........
