Macerator pumps provide a partial answer to RV sewage disposal, chopping waste into a thin slurry and pumping it out through a garden hose to a proper disposal.
An Introductory Guide to Boondocking.
July 31, , A few years ago a “neighbor” a few blocks away decided to buy a trailer and rent it to his brother and dumped the sewage into his existing septic system. It worked so well, he decided to buy two more and do the same thing To make a long story short, he overloaded the septic capacity and created a big spill which contaminated a next door neighbor’s well without anyone knowing.
It’s a city water hookup. In simple terms, if there is a hose bib where the trailer is parked, you can use a special drinking hose (don’t use a garden hose! They leach chemicals, especially when out in the sun) and hook it up here.
Do you even need to ask? Yes, he lives in an Airstream. This Airstream—28 feet long, eight feet wide, and about 7, pounds—was to be our home for the next five days and four nights. My roommate, Miguel, and I have experience sharing tight spaces. We lived together as college freshmen and sophomores, in bunk beds both years. This situation was quite a bit nicer. There were a stove, a dining nook also convertible into a bed , a bathroom, a shower, and more storage space than we knew what to do with, much of it preloaded with high-end pots and pans and kitchenware.
Our trip was a throwback with a modern twist, an all-American version of glamorous camping—glamping—out to the great big red-rock canyons in Utah and back. The rental company, Airstream2Go, is the only licensed and authorized Airstream rental in the world. It has a good pedigree. Courtesy of Airstream2go Riegel started Airstream2Go for three reasons. A startup fit the bill.
And third, he was tired of saying no to all the people who asked—and this happened at least once a day, every day—if it was possible to rent one. The cult of the silver bullet is stronger than ever, and the backlog to buy one can be years.

Over and over again To say we have been going through a few changes is an under statement. Since we last talked our lives have completely been turned upside down. SO, let talk about it. PAT just looked over my shoulder and said, “I don’t feel right about telling people we are debt free” and my response was these people don’t know us.
I guess some might, but I don’t know what difference it makes, so I’m leaving the statement in.

Two geeks, two cats in an airstream. Walls, wood, drapes, mattress, clothing, and even the adhesive holding together parts of your trailer, will become damp to the touch. Before you know it, mold and mildew will start to appear. I have made it my goal to reducing humidity. The key here is to understand Relative humidity or RH for short. RH is the amount of water vapor present in air expressed as a percentage of the amount needed for saturation at the same temperature. If the water vapor content stays the same and the temperature drops, the relative humidity increases.
If the water vapor content stays the same and the temperature rises, the relative humidity decreases. In colder climates, wintertime humidity levels must be even lower. I already own several digital thermometers and hygrometers relative humidity gauge. This is a powerful tool to help you reduce internal moisture levels. They fairly accurate and easy to use. Naturally, if we were in a hot and humid environment running your Air Conditioning Unit will automatically dehumidify.
For just the month of November in the great Pacific North west, rainfall measured at 7 inches already above the monthly norm, and we had two weeks to go before December.

Rich Luhr These days about half of new Airstreams are sold to people who have never owned any type of travel trailer or motorhome before. That means there are a lot of people who are just now trying to learn all the tricks and skills needed to optimize their travel experience. Showers and dishes are the two things that consume most of the water used in an Airstream.
Saving water on dishwashing is easy. You can switch to paper plates when you are boondocking, or use campground dish-washing facilities if they are available. The shower is a trickier problem. Some people extend their time between showers by using body or baby wipes for quick cleanups. Put the used wipes in the trash instead. In a campground with no hookups, you may have access to a campground shower.

What you will need Trojan Group 24 AGM Battery Before you decide to head out to a boondocking spot, be aware of what your rig is capable of. If you spend most of your camping time connected at a campground, you are most likely not prepared to be without hookups for more than 2 days. The obvious considerations are these: Electricity, water, waste, heat and trash. How fast you are putting amps back in to your batteries and how fast you are pulling them out.
In standard lead-acid type batteries, your amp-hour rating will typically be cut by half when it comes to usable amps.
Next I hook up my water hose. I normally attach the water pressure regulator directly to the water spigot at the campsite then I attach my water filter to the water regulator. My hose is then attached from the water filter to my Airstream.

Amazing what sticks in the public consciousness. Late models, not so much. Unit base weights started to really fatten up with the wide-body layout. Ours is lbs empty, with a lb tongue weight. Try hooking that to your Schwinn. I definitely do not see as many as I did when I was younger. I think Wally would be thrilled with its current design, I know I am. Besides, I like Twinkies.
Top 5 Good, Bad and In-between of Our Fleetwood Excursion
There are a bunch of little things that we like about this rig from the Sony LED TVs, to the water pump switches throughout the RV, the entry light that turns on when we open the front door, the pet window and so on.

Plumbing This is a typical water fill on a vintage trailer. Lift the lid and fill the tank with water. It connects to the trailer with 4 screws. Use putty tape to seal it before you install it. This is a typical water drain and city water hook up. The drain simply comes from the sink drain and drains onto the ground. The city water hook up connects to a hose and supplies water directly to a faucet at the sink.
This is a typical hand pump. This trailer does not have a city water hook up.
