Yes it is really good info, but at my other [ Liteweight] website,[where this has been floating around for a few years] it seems that about 40% of the folks, either don't bother to read it, can't read ,or [the last 2%] think it doesn't pertain to them because they are superior beings that drive carefully & slowly with their short w/b TV's,that in a few cases are overweight also.

I asked 1 individual who empowers folks new to towing,with sometimes poor advice [my opinion] why he is against recomending a 10% [or more] saftey cushion on the weights in question.His reply was that his tow rig was over wieght if a saftey margine was used.

Looks great, lots of good info, but once again I must go against the suggestion that holding tank chemicals are "necessary" as that website suggests.

I've never used them, and rarely have odor problems. We've been on the road for three weeks now and only experienced odor from the black tank once, and that was because it was miserably hot and it had some contents left over from a few days of boondocking....and even then I didn't bother when chemicals, I simply gave it a good flush at our next campsite which took care of the problem.

I see people all the time at the camp stores spending a fortune on nasty chemicals which they may not even need, and I'm certain probably don't do a whole lot of good for the environment.

I don't normally use chemicals either. Every so often I'll 3/4 fill the tanks with water and add 1/2 cup of Surf Laundry Soap and take off down the road to get it all stirred up and then flush the tanks with fresh water. No oder problems at all.
