  1. Assuming there isn’t a recurrent blockage in the pump inlet lines, try replacing the screened washer in the rear inlet with just a plain washer. If that doesn’t help, disconnect the flex-hose at the pump inlet filter and set the two valves to direct flow to/from the rear inlet. Use 30-50 psi compressed air at the flex-hose end to reverse clear the line. It may be possible that there is a connection leak allowing air to be sucked into the rear inlet line but that would have affected your previous sanitation efforts as well.
  2. The Hehr p/n is H109-376. It comes in both black and white so be sure your source will permit you to specify which. I order Hehr parts from Pelland Enterprises pellandent.com (aka rvwindow.com). Great service.
  3. Michelin stopped producing the LT225/75-R16 LTX tires last April. Cooper (Goodyear) is one of only a few other choices.
  4. Your quickest solution Cash may be to use the winterizing procedures to draw a gallon of white vinegar into the entire system and let it sit for a few hours. Then flush until taste is gone. May need to repeat depending on severity of the calcium build up. What ever solves your problem, your next priority should be to obtain a water softener.
  5. To avoid further confusion, the Dexter axle owner's manual list all their part numbers for each weight axle. Take all the numbers for a 5000# axle, go to Rockauto.com, and do part number searches for each of these Dexter numbers. The returns will list comparable manufacture's parts. Most if not all the specs will list country of origin. If "Made in China" bearings are undesirable, select the US made Timken brand bearings and National seals.
  6. To answer your original questions: The fresh water fill line enters the tank on the back side near the top right corner. This line does have a backflow check valve hard plumbed at the water inlet. This check valve has a 2-3 psi crack pressure that would have to be overcome, so gravity feeding through the fresh fill inlet might be difficult. Depending on the height of your aux tank, it might be possible to gravity feed through the boondocking inlet and backfill the tank through the pump pickup tube. There is no backflow prevention in this path. You would just need to open both valves on the left side of the diagram. But again, the height of the aux tank would be key and need to be higher than the plumbing elevation. I'm onboard with the others that suggest just treating the aux tank as boondocking source. To me, it seems better to transfer the water to the main tank rather than demand pumping from the aux. The water temperature will be better maintained and you won't have to disconnect and reconnect every time you want to move your tow vehicle.
  7. Check your truck owners manual. I know the F250 lists only a couple of towing circumstance when it might be advisable to turn it off. When using a WDH isn't one of them. Andersen’s advice seems a bit dubious, like not greasing the ball.
  8. Yep they’re just some magnets (see picture) I found at a local hardware center. Put a dab of Marine Tex epoxy and centered on bolt heads. They work better than I expected.
  9. The hook and chain grade and size can vary depending on the rating target. The grade 70 x 1/4" I used are rated for 7-12K trailers. A Grade 30 X 3/8" or grade 43 x 5 /16" might be similarly rated.
  10. The switch needs to be free to rotate so it can adjust to the angle of pull by the cable. Best to replace the screw.
  11. Looks like they put the wrong label on your PDC door, one for an Elite I maybe? The last two 20 Amps are for 12V/USB outlets. #6 is for the dinette outlets above the LP/CO detector and #7 is for the curb-side night stand (twin bed model). That second 7.5 (#5) feeds the basement light.
  12. Someone may have though they were disconnecting the main 12V feed, like many do when winterizing. I'm guessing you don't know what that is however.
  13. That is a manufacturing defect that likely occurred when the opening for the stove was cut. I'd guess the counter top was still a little "green" when the opening was cut and air got between the gelcoat and substrate. OTT will replace it, just ask.
  14. I'm a bit confused on a couple of points. 1. The lug on the short jumper attached to the outer battery, the one under the inverter cable you attached, used to appear upside down in previous pictures. What did you do that changed it to right-side-up? Ideally it should be the way it was so you'd have a little more flexibility in aligning the inverter cable on top of it. 2. I heard you to say in earlier posts that the inverter cable seemed to be too short to reach the outer battery post. Can the battery tray still be opened all the way? Other than this, good job. Just re-secure the flex sleeving and call it a day.
  15. Great. Be sure to post a picture when you're done so we can critique your work.
