Has anyone seen this happen.

While at the Rally, we had decent city water... volume and pressure was great. Instructions said to arrive with holding tanks empty and a full fresh water tank. I stopped along the way and the tank was showing (based on the monitor) one light down from full.

Water pump was off... never turned on. There was no leaks.

After several days the fresh tank was showing around half full. I had not been drinking alcohol... at least not in excess. Ha

I know about the pump check valve failing that would fill or overflow the fresh tank from the city supply, but has anyone heard of the opposite happening?

I suspect that the issue is the inaccuracy of the monitor system. Anyone?

Thanks,
Clint

Probably so, Clint, the MicroPulse systems are famous for inaccuracies.

I’m quoting myself to make a correction. I tried to edit a few hours after I posted the bad info but I had waited too long.

Correction: two GC-2s at 225 Ah are considered about 112 Ah usable when discharged slowly.
Oops

Anyone curious what floor looks like below the thin vinyl sheet? A band of black paint around perimeter and s cost of adhesives, which wasn’t holding many places on this 2013 model year. You can see butt joint fasteners and hefty flat square drive screws. Some evidence of sanding too. More than Forest River does.

I have some gently used blonde vinyl free to a good home. Too.

Clint,

The readings I get for our black and gray are usually pretty good... All my reading for the fresh water tank are odd!

When I was at the factory everyday for the two weeks it took build our Classic in January 2014, I watched a very disinterested chap with a bucket apply that black sealer to the edge of the plywood floor. He dipped the brush into the bucket about every ten feet. The color was barely there and no effort to apply generously to the edge of the plywood. So truly a lick and a promise for the first line of defense against water getting into the plywood.

Thanks for the pictures Rob. What you have done to your International is truly remarkable. You have a great talent. I have never heard of “Baltic Birch” until you came along . Thanks again for sharing.

I like your WH hold down method, Rob. It looks like you needed about 2-1/4” of spacing while I needed 3-3/4”. This is making me raise the bed (s) platform a minimum of 1-3/8” higher to clear the WH. That’s also going to force me to go with about s 6” mattress because of the wardrobe cabinet. I could have reduced the height of that cabinet if I had realized it first.

There are far better non rotting materials that could be used for the floors of these $70 - $150 K trailers. Might increase cost to build by $200?
