RE: Dry as a bone,…again

Folks, My recently acquired Holiday Rambler, Augusta, B+, 29’ has a fresh water issue. When dry camping I can only get about two days from the single 29 gallon fresh water holding tank. It’s only the two of us and we don’t shower in the RV. There is no leak. Our previous rig, a 34’ Itasca Suncruiser, had two large water tanks. Never an issue. Your new RV does not have a fresh water issue; YOU have a water usage issue. Your previous 34' class A rig likely had at least 3 or even 4 times the water capacity that your new rig has (my 30' Itasca Sunrise has 84 gal). It is easy to get lazy with water conservation when you have that much on "tap". My last rig (a class C) had 32 gal, and we (DW & I) could go 3-4 days IF we only "navy" showered on the last day, but we were also very cognizant of conserving in everything we did. Sorry, but going from a large class A to a mid-sized B+, you've got to change how you use water. You are absolutely right. ;)

The overflow was plugged the first fill. No more.

RE: Dry as a bone,…again

I don’t think we’re wasting water. But, each toilet flush seems to use more than I’d like. Yes, time to apply the old saying. As to filling, we can actual watch it fill. So, I know it starts out full. But, I will check it again once we arrive at our destination. Several reasons we bailed early. Yes, we could have just gone to the camp spigot. However, we were going home every day anyway to care for my wife’s 85 year old mother who suffers from dementia. Plus, severe storms were predicted. Fortunately, we were home when the power went out. And, our traveling companions were bailing , too. That was the nail.

Yes,…good suggestion. I do notice a lot of sloppage.

RE: Dry as a bone,…again

The holding tank is under/behind the bed. There is a wood panel next to the bed that I unscrewed and slid back so I can access the water pump, plumbing and actually watch the tank fill. We’re on our first summer with this rig, so I’m getting to know it. We bought it last fall and yes, the first time I filled the tank water spurted back out and I thought it was full. Nope. Trapped air. This time I had my wife watch it. She said she was sure it was filled, but I’ll double check next time. We rarely dry camp, but there’s a really nice state campground on a lake nearby. Trouble is, it only has electric. It will be a pain to add more water storage. But, what else do I have to do. LOL

Dry as a bone,…again

Folks, My recently acquired Holiday Rambler, Augusta, B+, 29’ has a fresh water issue. When dry camping I can only get about two days from the single 29 gallon fresh water holding tank. It’s only the two of us and we don’t shower in the RV. There is no leak. Our previous rig, a 34’ Itasca Suncruiser, had two large water tanks. Never an issue. But, this week we ran dry again and decided to come home, rather than refill for one more day. My question is, is this normal? And, if so, is it feasible to add an auxiliary water tank? The actual doing of it is not an issue. But, is it advisable, and has anyone else done so. I’d prefer not to lug a big container of water in our tow vehicle. Thanks.

Installed a Roadmaster stabilizer. Problem 90% corrected.
