Various tank valves and seals


Recommended Posts

Greetings,

Pardon me if this is already covered, but the search I attemped was either 0 or thousand plus...

When storing your Ollie for a couple weeks or even a few months, should some liquid be left in the toilet and all other tanks to keep the seals from drying out? Also, shouls the Ollie be stored level, or withe front end slightly raised? Or, does any of this matter at all?

I leave our trailer with a bit of rv antifreeze in the bowl, because it doesn't evaporate as readily as water.

We leave camco valve seal in the tanks. 

I live in Florida.

I ensure there is water in the toilet when we aren’t using it.  I periodically check and if needed I had more water.  I also periodically put some water down each drain.  Mike

I use these for the drain valves in the tanks and for the toilet seal:

Seriously,  need to keep the toilet blade valve and seal lubricated. Rv antifreeze is perfect, wherever you live. Water is fine, if you can check it frequently,  and you're in a temperate climate.

Don't let it dry out.

Agree with the advice above --

And, if you are going to store your Ollie for a period of time - say three months or so - you might want to cover top of the bowl with some Saran Wrap type of material.  This helps prevent the liquid in the bowl from evaporating as rapidly.
