For former Casita owners who had the HEPVO valve, would that same device work for an Escape to do away with the plug? Anyone know if that is feasible?

We always try and keep the gray water tank empty, however, on occasion, when we don't have access to dump, and having pressed down and turned the plug hasn't helped, the wonderful gray water comes up into the shower pan. As I said, the plug has threads, but the drain does not. A great reason to keep the tank as empty as possible.

Hi: All... While on vacation in Fla. we were busy making bloody caesar's. We cleaned the celery stirs and put all the debris down the garberator... like good bartenders should. After dinner on opening the dishwasher we found all the celery debris floating in it!!! Oops. Alf

Ours screws in too, it's the center part that has the threads.

I believe ETI will not install the Hepvo valve, so if you want to later, just do not have the foam spray installed.

The installation of a Hepvo valve may be a code issue.
In our area the plumbing code only allows there use in very limited applications . They were allowed for a period of time but from what I was told , for every problem they solved another was created
If the Hepvo valve is accessible it may not be an issue but if concealed in a finished wall it may be a different story.
Venting to the atmosphere is the simplest and most fool proof method IMHO

Why not just stuff a wet paper towel or sponge in the drain prior to towing?
