Love the article on RV dealers and dropping the ball on service.

I’ve subscribed for quite a while. Seems to me the newsletter contains a huge content of ads and products for sale and very little usable content. I like the good stuff, but its very tedious scrolling through the ads.

Stan, we probably have about the same percentage of ads as a consumer magazine. We need ads to survive. Only about five percent of our audience provides financial support in the form of a “voluntary subscription.” As those contributions increase our dependence on advertising will decrease.

Why do rvs have gray and black tanks when both get dumped in the same place?
One large tank would be more efficient

Seems to me other than using multiple tanks to help distribute the weight around, the grey shower water is nice to use flushing the black sewage out of the hose. I would also imagine there might be a couple health or safety codes preventing the use of just one tank?

EUGH! I’d hate not to be able to flush our drain pipe with gray water after running black through it!

MY wife had a old Shasta with just one tank and while on an extended transit without a dump station available had the tank back up into the shower! She almost couldn’t use it again until she had it steam cleaned.
Two tanks are better

With regard to removing decals, removing them is fairly easy, but how do you get rid of the ghost? I even tried Ghost Off, removed the paint, but the ghost remained, who ya gonna call?

The ghost comes in handy for masking and Painting where old decals were situated! Just saying.
