Shakedown of Our Minnie Plus

Shakedown of Our Minnie Plus

This last weekend we spent our first night in our Winnebago Minnie Plus 27BHSS.  It is highly advised that for your first adventure in a new RV that you driveway camp or head to a campground that is not very far from home.  This first adventure is known as a shakedown trip and it intended for you to find things that are not working properly.  For our Shakeout, we headed to Jordanelle State Park.  Its a campground that we are…

How We De-Winterize and Sanitize Our Winnebago

How We De-Winterize and Sanitize Our Winnebago

Unclogging A Black Tank Flush

Unclogging A Black Tank Flush

A few trips back we started having issues with our Black Tank Flush system that came with our trailer.  Normally when we would attach a hose, water would spray into the black tank.  This was very handy for cleaning and to help add water to the tank before or after dumping.  But what was happening is that the line would essentially pressurize and no water would go into the black tank.  This was obviously disappointing and I started troubleshooting what…
