Re: Finally Moliska is joining skoolie.net!

You might want to pull that water heater out and flush out the tank. We had bought an older RV (and are currently living in it). During the rebuild of it, we found the water heater tank was full of sand from years of not using a sediment filter. We never put water into our RV without having the water pass thru the sediment filter (and our Whirlpool DB2 filter as well). We have a reusable sediment filter (get it in the well pump section of Lowes/Home Depot) that we just flush out periodically. It's easier to keep the crap out before it gets into the system than to try and get it out after the fact.

The valves that you don't know what they are for... could they be to drain the water system for winterizing?

Re: Finally Moliska is joining skoolie.net!

Old manuals for RV appliances. May help you out if you are planning on keeping any of that stuff.
http://www.nwrvsupply.com/manuals.htm
http://bryantrv.com/docs.html

http://www.ccis.com/home/mnemeth/index.htm So much that you might find other things that you may be interested in... often funny too. Click on RV Technical articles. Mark has very informative articles that are written in an easily understood manner. Read "Water, Water Everywhere" , "The 12volt side of Life" is a good read. Hint & Tips has some good stuff.

That water tank, if you do decide to go with something different, might check local soda shops and distributors. They tend to have 15, 30, 55 gallon barrels dirt cheap. Would need a good cleaning.
hey,..aww man the curtains are just up there all haphazardly...they were a kick-down from friends that got a camper and changed the curtains to suit their taste... but thanx! I'm not sure what breeds duchess is?! got her from the pound 2 yrs ago... she is the best girl ever... they said her mom was a red nose pit and just her and her brother were left... she was 2 1/2 months old and had kennel cough really bad.... but her ears started to stick up shortly after... also she has a black spot on her tongue.... she howls like a hound at the coyote's.. a great mutt... I think I'm gonna reuse the galvanized tank... but that is a great idea.... anything to save a buck at this point
