Thanks. We have also considered that (use the kitchen sink) solution. It works nice in little trailers.

Had a little setback today...I was under the back of the trailer, getting ready to work on something else, and noticed a drip from the black tank. The glued joint between tank and fitting was leaking. The fitting was put on by Icon, and included with the tank.

After lots of wondering what to do, I decided to pull the tank out, and cut off the old fitting. I did, and then removed the remains of it by prying and scraping. It looks like it just was not glued on well. I got a 3x4" ABS adapter, and turned it down in my lathe to become the fitting I needed. I glued it on with normal ABS pipe glue, and clamped it with a ratcheting strap. Hopefully it will be strong enough to work. If not, I'll go to plan B...which is not quite figured out, but I have some ideas.

I'll put the tank back in tomorrow, after leak checking.

Meantime, I got the bathroom door hung, and my wife started on some covers for seat cushions. Still a bunch of other little stuff to do.

We made it to the campground, camped, had fun, made it home. The Airstream worked well. We still have to figure out the water use thing, but that will come with practice, I'm sure. Furnace was good to have, as it got down below freezing the first two nights. We cooked breakfast and dinner each day. There was a late model Safari across the street from us. And our friends with their 1965 Silver Streak.

Pictures when I get a chance....
