RE: Can't find black and grey tanks.

To drain the black and gray tanks look for a 3" black pipe with 2 t-handle valves. You may have two lines. I do. You also need to find the FW tank drain. It will be a 1/2" line with a valve on the end. You also need to find 2 low point drains. One for hot and one for cold. They will have valves or caps on the ends. You tube is your friend. You don't need a manual. They are generac anyway. All RV are basically the same.

RE: toilet treatment for black water tank

Us seasonals don't move ours. The chemicals are not snake oil. They have been working for many many years. (50) that I know of. I use the orange Camco packs form WM. (think Tide pods) Sensors do and will fail. You will learn when the tank is full. The toilet will Burp back at you when flushing. I just Drain the same day every week with no problems in 4 years. We can go 10 days if need be. You will also be able to see down the toilet if it is straight over the tank. 5 gals of water and a chem treatment after you drain and a full bowl of water when you flush the poop.

RE: Built-in microwave sounds sick

Your batteries have absolutely nothing to do with your microwave. It is 120 volts. Run an extension to it and see if anything changes. Plug should be in a cabinet next to the microwave. Micro should be on it's own circuit. Pull the outlet out of the wall and check the connections. Check the wiring in the circuit breaker box for loose connections. check voltage with a real volt meter. Not red lights.

RE: Fry cooking electric device and watts?

IF you have a full 120 volts circuit at your camp you will draw 15 amp @1800 watts. That's a maxed out circuit. chances are it will not work for long. There will be other things on that circuit. Best thing to do in run a 12 ga extension cord from the 20 amp outlet on the ped to the appliance If the ped has low voltage (and it will) the amperage goes up and it will never work.

RE: Is a cover necessary ?

RE: What good are low point drains?

I'm speaking of two pipes, one hot water, one cold water, that are tapped into lines running along under the water heater, that protrude down 10" under the bottom of the trailer, and are labeled low point drains. I also have a single line from the bottom of the fresh water tank used to drain it. The fresh drain is crossed link flexible PEX. It should handle some freezing. The low point drains are hard plastic probably not going to handle freezing. And, sticking out 10", I don't believe that they would not freeze down close to zero degrees. My concern is how do I prevent freezing and busting when I'm still camping in weather between zero and 32 degrees. I don't have a problem once the trailer is parked for winter full of antifreeze. Eliminating them eliminates busting from freezing, and I don't see why I need them to fill the system with antifreeze. Empty PEX pipe will not freeze.

RE: What good are low point drains?

If you remove the drains, how will you drain your system and get rid of the antifreeze in the system? Steve you remove the antifreeze in the system with the faucets and toilet inside the RV. You do not put antifreeze in your fresh water tank. You use a bypass hose on the pump. Takes about 2 gallons.

RE: What good are low point drains?

If you don't have them how are you going to drain the tank. They will be fine and won't break Low point drains (2) do not drain the tank. They only drain the piping system. The FW tank has it's own drain. Low point drains are not necessary if you use antifreeze, My 2011 32' Keystone sprinter has no low point drains.

RE: 2016 Forest River Forester ws mbs low water drain

your not looking for 1 drain. Your looking for 2 side by side. 1 hot 1 cold. my 5er they were near the steps. some are near the axles. My 2011 Keystone with extreme thermo package does not have low point drains. Nothing but tank drains below the underbelly.

RE: inside lights dim

You changed the batteries. That's the place I would start. There are 2 30/40 amp reverse polarity fuses on the converter. There may be an in-line re-setable fuse near the batteries.

winter cover help

Looking for recommendations for storage cover. leave Travel Trailer in seasonal site for the winter for last 4 years. Heavily wooded site. Decided to install a cover next year as it's getting too hard for me to get up on the roof and clean off all the leaves and debris and dirt. I find lots of broken tree branches every year and a mat of maple leaves. Would like to keep price around $200/300. 32' Keystone sprinter.
