Working on putting the front trim piece on today. I learned a little trick, you can see the gap in the picture, what I did was to take the palm of my hand and layed it on top of the gap and then slowly, very slowly bend the piece back to take the gap out, then slowly worked myself around with the trim piece.

Before permanently setting the front trim piece, added Trempro 635 to the outside and after setting the trim piece sealed the inside.

thats a great idea to stop water at each layer. I was surprised how many seams on ours weren't factory sealed (which I think led to most of the floor rot). Every horizontal, overlapped seam was not sealed, only end cap and verticle seams. Every one of them leaked. Made panel replacement easier (man that black stuff is hard to remove) though. Boy your belt trim is in great shape.

Decided to go with a inline Hygienic Self Sealing Waste Valves, has been approved for RV use in the US since early 2007. Dry sealing valve prevents the escape of odors from your waste system into your RV and eliminates the need for check vents. Can be used in a vertical application as well as horizontal. A couple of Class A builders are using them under kitchen sinks to allow for drawers below the sink.

help to see pics

I really want to see some of your Pictures....from the 2008 range...on the door and windows. I get blank pages...GEF.2x2... Not JPEG. On the later pics that are JPEG it comes thru. Have we got a computer whizz available? Can I get these to show? I think your work is super and I'd like to use it as a guide in my next project.

No vents needed?

These dry valves look pretty interesting and I am at the stage in my remodel where I am just about to re-plumb my entire drain system. I have a couple of questions about these valves as follows:

I can see that using these dry valves would eliminate the need for p-traps on the shower and the sinks in the kitchen and bath. I can also see that it eliminates the need for vents on the drains themselves. Is the need for additional venting on the gray water tank then completely eliminated?

Presumably I still need a vent on my black water tank since there is no p-trap on the toilet that I can replace with one of these gadgets. Is that a given?

Thanks,

Malcolm

Tums

Would you not need a vent to relieve the build up of gas? If the the tank is "sealed", then I would think back pressure would interfere with the one way valve.
