    I have this awful smell in my refrigerator. There is no open or spoiled food in it. It smells like something died in there. How do I get in there to find out what it is?

    My roof is EPDM rubber; what do I use to coat it, and what doI use to caulk vents, seams, Windows, etc. & is caulking applied before or after the roof is re-coated?

    My first camper. I was advised to put 7 gallons into the fresh water tank, turn on the pump and run the faucets, toilet and showers until pink. Now I’m hearing it’s not the way to do it. Is it bad what I did?

      Hello Patrick,

      Thank you for contacting us. Here is the experts response:

      They usually don’t use plugs, typically it is a valve that needs opened. These are in different locations on all RV’s. Typically they are just below the tank or the opposite end of where the fill is. The drains can be put anywhere though. If your tank is visible from the inside like under the bed it is possible the drain is directly attached to the tank on the side and then just drains underneath. If you see just an open drain line under the RV this usually means there is a valve inside that needs opened. There are different types as well but if you know where the water pump is or the fill for the fresh tank check in these areas as these are usually near the tank
