Wonder if #31 would take care of the condensation issue some have.

I was thinking about the bubble wrap around the windows and covering the metal frames.

We've only been out in single digits minus (c) overnights , so have really only had a bit of condensation on the window frames . But I have wondered why do they can't make the frames out of vinyl ?

Interesting link in the opening post. But watch the little clip at the bottom of the thread called "let's go camping".

A road trip that never gets anywhere.

# 19 is a bit odd for me , not because it wouldn't work - but because it seems to me that cleaning egg out of a bowl would be easier than a bottle and top .....

QUOTE: Make your own black tank cleaner: Mix together a cup of Borax detergent and 1/2 cup of Calgon Water Softener. UNQUOTE

I tried this once. Cost a fortune for the Calgon or the Borax ( I forget which) and I had two huge, heavy boxes to cart around. I can't say if it actually worked or not. I went back to a commercial product designed for the purpose.

I would guess for strength and durability, though not certain.
