Games and Chores

Things are going kind of slow with the NCAA Basketball Tournament in progress you just know what I'm doing.
Yeah, I really like the college basketball and when a few teams I like make it to the tournament that makes it special.

I still did take time to drain the black tank and flush it out after a small problem with it.
The flow started good but then stopped all of a sudden and that is not good.
So what I did was put some water in the tank, thinking maybe the water would have enough pressure would push the blocked stuff out.  But no luck on that.
Then with my thinking cap on I thought that maybe Dawn dish washing liquid was good for stuff other than washing dishes  I would try that.
I poured about six ounces of the Dawn in the tank and waited about twenty minute then went out to open the valve to see what would happen?
Well what do you know, the Dawn did the trick it soften up the clog enough for it to drain out.

Next up was to run the 5500W Onan Generator on the motorhome so it would not be setting and the carb be plugged up.
Also we have a 100W Sportsman Generator that we use a lot when we are boondocking that comes in handy. We have a one or two days at a time that we are without hookups and it works for us especially if the sun is not shining on the solar panels.

We did go 28 days in in one month this passed year that we was with out an electric hookup and made it just fine and that was just fine.
That was with our 10 cube ft  residential refrigerator that you read about people saying you will not be able to boondock if you have one in your camper. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Glad you are enjoying your College Games.
Part of the trick for draining the Black Tank is making certain there is few gallons of water in it at all times. It stops the waste from hardening. That is what we use our Grey Water for.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
