Add to cart A Story About Us In the spring of I was introduced to the concept of cleaning holding tanks and toilet clogs and restoring the sensors to reading properly, using a hydro jet cleaning process. From the very beginning I noticed that the tanks were full of what appeared to be sand. Conventional wisdom said it was hard water deposits that had dried along with the organic sludge. I began to notice that some tanks were much worse than others. In an effort to discover what this cement-like matter really was and what was causing it, I began to ask people what they were using for a holding tank treatment, and videotaped the results during the cleaning process. I quickly discovered that when there was a chemical based product used exclusively, the hard deposits were very pronounced. Because we were using such high pressure we were turning the sludge into a vapor, and it was immediately obvious that NONE of the tank treatments removed odor; some just masked it a little with a deodorant. The hotter it was the more it smelled! We quit recommending any particular treatment because we were discovering that none of them really worked. We suggested using Pine Sol to cover the odor, but that is not good for the seals.

Hooking up a amp vehicle to a amp power pedestal whenever possible will help protect the long-term dependability of appliances in your rig, Finch says. The breakers for the electrical systems in most campgrounds are designed with a tolerance of percent, plus or minus. If breakers tripped at exactly 30 amps, they would cost much more — perhaps 10 times as much — as breakers normally used.

A amp outlet supplies 3, watts 30 amps multiplied by volts. Therefore, the breaker on that outlet could meet code and still trip anywhere between a total load of 2, watts 80 percent of 3, watts and 4, watts percent of 3, watts. That sets up a situation where the breaker on a amp outlet may not trip until the load exceeds 4, watts.

For amp service, however, the potential amount of power used — 12, watts, or 50 amps times volts — represents more than three times as much possible demand as amp service. Conversely, a amp rig hooked up to a amp outlet is only getting about one-third of the power that the rig may need to run a full complement of appliances. The same principle applies to the design of electrical circuits in commercial buildings and campgrounds.
