Today we will talk about RV storage tanks. To begin with, I would mention something about RV storage tanks that I do not think much of RVers are aware of. Many freezing stations available to RVers are closed for chemicals that are harmful to the septic system and because RVers are abusing these dumps. If we want to access these dump stations, it is absolutely necessary to use septic safe substances (no formaldehyde) and to clean up after us and not abuse the trash can.
Your trailer has a gray water tank and a black water tank. The green reservoir collects dirty water from the sink in the kitchen, sink and shower bathroom. The black water tank is on the toilet. These tanks will end in one main outlet used to drain the storage tanks. This is where we connect our sewer hose.
Make sure you have the necessary connections and connections. It may be necessary to connect two tubes together to achieve the drainage solution. I recommend that you use only heavy duty sewer tubes. They are not so expensive and they are doing much better. Hold 10-foot hose and 20-foot hose available. Do not pull or pull the sewer hose on the ground. This will cause it to tear or get pin holes in it.
To drain the sewer hose make sure that both valves are closed and remove the sewers. Make the connection by plugging the hose into the socket and turning it clockwise until it locks securely into place. Take the other end of the tube to a sewer campsite. Use the necessary adapter to connect and get a good seal. It's a good idea to lay weight over the hose so that it does not jump back when you drain the tanks. It may be necessary to use some sort of sewer hose support to get a good angle from RV to camping sewer connection so that the tank drain drains properly when you drain them. A small lid is for the gray water tank and the big end is for the black water tank.
One golden rule for RV storage tanks is never to copy black water tanks until it is at least two thirds full. You want the tank to be almost full so that weight and gravity will force the tank's contents to drain properly. Another golden rule is never to leave the black tank open in the campsite and expect the toilet to drain or rinse like a toilet in the home. It will not work.
When the tank is full, or almost full, first pull the black tank and then with a gray tank. The green water reservoir should be at least two thirds full. Dumping on the gray water slope last will help rinse the drainage tube.
When you are in the campsite for a long time, you can partially close the gray tank so it runs out as you use it, but never mind the black tank. If it's time to leave the campsite and your containers are not full you can finish filling them with water and then copy them. Never use your drinking water hose to maintain maintenance or cleaning products. Smoke hoses are usually white. Take another color hinge for other uses so you can identify the difference.
After you have lost the tanks, you need to carefully clean your tanks. Some RVs have a built-in system for flushing out. If there are no other ways to do that. You can use a tank guard designed to clean and rinse the black tank. The only problem is that you do not know when or if the black tank is very clean and you can not flush or clean the gray tank with a wall. I use a product called Flush King. There is a breathing valve that connects directly to the drainage air and rinses and cleans both containers in one simple operation. It's easy to use and it has seen through the barrel so you know when the tanks are very clean.
Every time you dump the black tank, you need to treat it by holding stuff in a bin to assist in managing odors and breaking down material. You should always use environmentally friendly content. Simplified materials use good bacteria to digest waste and control odors. Formaldehyde-based materials destroy the bacteria that need to break down and can be dangerous to humans and pets.
The first step is to add enough water to reach the bottom of the tank. Four or five full bowls must be sufficient according to the size of your black tank. Water will help a lot to control the lanterns. You always want the tank's contents to be covered with water. Next, fill the toilet bowl and add the right amount of storage products, usually four ounces for every forty liter the container holds. Rinse the toilet. Repeat this procedure every time you drain black water. Some storage products such as RV Trine also contain a lid of lubricating oils to keep the lid really correct and extend the sealed seal life.
Always use a toilet paper designed for use in a tray. This toilet paper breaks down and dissolves in the storage water that prevents potential storage water problems, RV sewerage systems and garbage disposal systems.
Fake storage space on the desktop is caused by the storage blisters that fall under toilet tissue or other trash. If the flush tank does not solve the problem, add some water and a few bags of cubes into an empty tank. Drive or pull the trailer so that the ice cubes can flush the sides of the tank. Proper storage equipment will also keep clean tank bins.
Fat and residues accumulate in the gray tank and it causes nausea, not to mention how it affects the tank and the final assembly. Regularly keep the gray tank with environmentally friendly storage products to prevent odor odors. When the tank is empty, you can also add some dishwashing to the drain to break down fat and residues build up.
Following these simple retention tips can prevent problems and provide you with long-term storage problems. This is one problem we can all do without! All our video cartridges include information about the RV tank, the water system, the LP gas system, the electrical system and more.
