Back to the subject matter at hand. Today I went out and opened my sewer hose holder and was confronted with an awful smell. I pulled out my hose from the holder and stretched it completely out to allow complete drying. Looking inside one can see puddles of water. I took my drill and drilled 6 x 1/4' holes along the bottom as well as the ends to allow better air as well as drainage. Hopefully this will take care of the issue at hand.

Too funny Alf,
What is that saying "" If you want to keep your beer cold, keep it next to your ex-wife's or ex-husband's heart"

Since we're all futzing with fans for the fridge, perhaps a solar-powered fan set up to blow through the stinky while it's stored in the pipe is a option?

I changed out the transfer switch in the 19'. It "died" about 14 days after we picked up our unit on May 2nd. Reace said this was the first time he had one go bad. He shipped us a new one that I installed today. Back to "good as new." During the interim, I used an extension cord and tapped directly into the inverter. As always, great customer service at Escape!

Jim, is the pipe insulation you used the round split type that goes over a pipe? If so, how big was the gap that you filled in with the pipe insulation? in my 21 the gap is about 2-1/2" and I can't find any pipe round type pipe insulation that big.
