I have a hydro flush hooked up at the black tank. Didn't think about it for the hose itself. I will probably keep it simple like you said for shorter trips. For the week trips though, I will use this set up and be done.

Initial set up only. Everything was rearranged once we got going. The darker garden hose is still there. That's the cleaning and flushing hose. There's no mistaking the two.

Not my actual hydro. Stole to pic from the internet. But NO I don't use a drinking hose. I use the same hose I use for my swivel stick wand.

Thanks

Thanks to this thread I have finally been able to take care of my biggest frustration with the purchase of our Rockwood Pup! Stupid design!

Would you be willing to share the parts list for your adaptor? I apologize if you already listed the parts and I have missed it.

This has got to be the most frustrating aspect of my Flagstaff 228D. We have yet to use the shower (or toilet for that matter), but as I get closer to using it and trying to figure it all out, I now realize i need to run a pipe back across the PUP to the sink side, or from the sink side to the other side and into a gray water tank?

At this point I have just been running my sink drain into a hose and off onto the ground, never even occurred to me we needed to be putting it into a tank. Guess I am the worlds worst camper...

Yes I have a 228 also bad design on grey water issue. What I have done is .
1) for sink I use a 5 gallon water bottle with hose coming form drain.
2) use 30 gallon tote for shower.

I did do mod last year and ran 1 1/2 inch PVC form shower drain to left side of camper and put the 3 inch adapter I got from this post. Works well, now the tote is where it should be and not by the front door. When the DW and I go camping I just take the tote and 5 gal bottle and the toilet tank to the dump station each morning to dump and rinse all 3 takes about 15 minutes. Shower is small though, but we do not have to use the campground facilities which is why we bought the camper with the bath and potty in the first place.

Don't get frustrated, just think about all the little things and make it work for you and your set up.

Have a great camping season!!

Well, I should clarify I DID know that you can't drain black water...I just didn't really realize the sink "gray water" couldn't just drain out of a hose onto the ground away from the campsite. I also didn't realize the shower didn't have a gray water holding tank until now.

In my short 8 months of ownership I have figured out a few things I should have been more educated about before the purchase...which is leading me to look at other models now...wonder how much of a bath I would take trading it back in so quick and upgrading...

When we decided on a pup, it was full hook ups only, which meant a high wall model. We also camp at full hook up campgrounds which makes things even easier. I did not want to have to deal with totes and dump stations. That's just me. Those things are probably not a big deal to others.

I do the same. FH other then 1 camping trip to a state park with other family. But after that trip we stay at a FH so we can dump n clean throughly.

Didn't mean you were doing it on purpose. We all learn from mistakes just hopefully we can learn from someone else's not ours! Lol. Yeah I wanted a shower n toilet and can't dump a cassette style so we only had a choice of which highwall. Love my HW other then fridge location and bag awning.

To answer your question, you could always sell yourself and buy a used HW. We waited and found a two year old like new HW by owner. Saved us $6K versus the otd price at our local dealer for a new one. Granted, there's no warranty, but I can deal with that and the savings.

The warranty bumper to bumper is only 1 yr for new anyways. We bought new only because the local dealer had 1 new and 1 used. The used was 4 yrs old already and he only wanted 2k more for a new one. But then he had to order a new one because that one sold pretty much at the same time as we bought and we got a 2015 for the price of the 2014 which was 1k less then it was supposed to sell for.

FR offers a 2nd year factory warranty for their popups, for only $100.
Most dealers don't tell customers about it so they can sell 3rd party warranties that they get a commission on.
