All our bus forays so far have been up to the family campsite where Roachie is basically just sleeping quarters. This time we'll start out at the camp then work our way back home over the following week, checking out some of the "real" campgrounds on the way and using it as an actual RV for a change.
With that in mind I thought it might be a good thing to check out the water tank that was filled once last year to test connections then drained and never used since. I had visions of a nice green swamp in there complete with frogs merrily croaking on lilly pads. Of course there was no way to actually look in there so I found this deck plate from Beckson Marine that filled the bill nicely. It went in easily, has an o-ring seal and is wide enough that I can get my whole arm in to scrub down the tank and evict the frogs.
Once I got the hole cut I could see about a cup of totally clean water in there and not a frog in sight.
Still, for a measly $15 it was worth it if only to keep the paranoia down to a dull roar.
Anyone interested in one of these should have a look at the Beckson website where they have closeouts available for a substantial savings.
