Grey Water Surge

Recommended Posts

One question I forgot to ask was how does Oliver control grey water surge when braking?  Casita used a slide valve and later a Hepvo valve.  Oliver?  And is that valve accessible should it need to be serviced?

There is a slide vave located under the front dinette seat, with the handle in the rear wall of the bathroom. Easy access, at both ends.

I agree with John - there is no "real" problem with either the slide valve or the operating handle in the bath.  On the 2017 models there is an option for an electric switch to operate the slide valve versus the standard mechanical one.  The reason I placed the word real in quotes is because I have forgotten to open that valve when camped.  Thus, I have had a wet floor (and wet feet) in the bath due to my own inability to remember to open the gate to allow the water from the sink or shower to flow into the grey tank.

Real campers will remember the older Casitas with the slide valve operator mounted OUTSIDE!  The pan's filling up and you ask your companion to step outside and pull the handle.  Or you make a quick dash outside in your birthday suit. :)  (Towel optional)

 

I kinda like the slide valve solution.  My latest Casita had the Hepvo valve and it sometime leaked some when the grey water surged and there was usually some debris to clean out of the shower.

Brad - the valve works great.  I've not had one drop get by the closed valve.
