We've owned our CF30SK for about 2 years; however, except for weekend/holiday use, haven't really done any extensive stay. But now we've retired, are in between houses and have been living in our 5th wheel for about 3 weeks.
As this is our 1st long-stay, have questions about hooking up to the parks sewage system. For the 1st couple of days I had all the valve to the holding tanks open, thinking it made sense to have the water/sewage flow out immediately. However, soon noticed an 'odor' whenever we opened up/used the toilet. Did some research and learned 1) i should keep the valves closed and 2) should have put some 'stuff' in the black tank. So, closed up the valves and added some Aqua-Kem. No more smell, but when tanks get full, do you have to hook up and go to a dump station of just open up the valves?
Also, what's the trick to disconnecting the water hose?I did add a pressure reducing valve, but even with the site water valve shut off, can't loosen my water hose that connects to the trailer connector?
Looking forward to learning from your experiences; thanks in advance for sharing.
