You know I bet not happy ones ,I redid the floor above the blacktank
due to a leaky toilet when I bought my tradewind and that was the first area I tackled .Removed the old galaxy aqua magic ,gross ,then up rooted the floor
area ,the subfloor was great and the tank looked just fine ,fiberglass is long
lasting and very strong .I just had to rebuild the small step up area of
the floor ,I put down new linoleum in the rear bath .Came out great.
Safari Tims looks real original and solid from the pics anyway .My trdwnd
has the exact layout ,using a porcelin sealand travler lite commode.I did not
as you might think need to take the black tank out ,so I didn't .From the initial look of Tims floor ,he might be in good shape there. No need ripping it all out unless you need to and some do .

I just might have to take my own procedure about fiberglass and hook up
my vent pipe as it is the same as Tims ,as is the bath layout exactly.I haven't experienced any ill vent effects ,but I think I will add that to my to do list ,as I always have some stuff to do . couldn't hurt .

Great! (I was going to say, Great Scott!, but you've probably heard that one before )

I'll let you work out the bugs first!

Na, just kidding. As I get to it, I'll be sure to post. Thanks for the info and suggestions.

I really would like to update the dump valve assembly as well. If I can do it from the bottom w/o removing the tank, that would be great.

I'll just have to wait unil I get to that point to see.

Yea I consider the dump valve deal ,it is all brass ,the main valve ,although
the lower 2" pipe tailpiece is not .I refit a new brass tail piece and resealed the shaft ,new double o ring packing and some grease .I like the mechanical
brass valve setup ,works fine .Now that being said ,the later brass valve setups on airstreams 61 or62 and 63 etc is completely different than tims or mine .I don't know if those can be repaired or not .Many times these valves
can be fixed ,maybe the part is not available from inland or ? but they are simple design ,brass ,long lasting .Just an idea if the valve isn't too far gone
as some can be.Tim you can go ahead and do your vent ,I will get to mine
sometime I don't know just when ,always somthing going on .
