Molds

Molds are microscopic organisms that naturally occur in virtually every environment, indoors and out. Outdoors, mold growth is important in the decomposition of plants. Indoors, mold growth is unfavorable. Left unchecked, molds break down natural materials, such as wood products and fabrics. Protect your investment by understanding the potential risks that mold imposes.

Contributing Factors To Mold Growth
For mold growth to occur, temperatures, indoors or outdoors, must be between 40° and 100°F, and must also have a source of moisture, such as humidity, standing water, damp materials, etc. Indoors, the most rapid growth occurs with warm and humid conditions.

Inhibiting Mold Growth
By controlling relative humidity, the growth of mold and mildew can be inhibited. In warm climates, use of the air conditioner will reduce the relative humidity. Vents are located in the bathing and cooking areas. Constant use of these vents is advised during food preparation and bathing, even during colder weather. Additionally, opening a window during these activities will assist in ventilation. In extremely humid conditions, the use of a dehumidifier can be helpful. Frequent use of your trailer, or cleaning regularly, are important preventive measures. Additionally, any spills should be wiped up quickly and dried as soon as possible. Avoid leaving damp items lying about. On safe surfaces, use a mold or mildew-killing cleaning products. Check sealants regularly, and reseal when necessary to avoid water leaks. Proper preventive maintenance of the trailer and its accessories, as described both in this manual and in the accompanying literature, will provide the best protection to the trailer. For more information concerning controlling moisture in the trailer, see Tips To Controlling Condensation on pages 3-9.

NOTE
If using a dehumidifier, please read and follow all manufacturer instructions and recommendations for the use and cleaning of the dehumidifier.

Waste Water System
The main parts of the wastewater system are the toilet, holding tanks, and tank dump valves; see Black and Gray Water Tank Draining on page 8-12. The system is designed to provide complete self-contained toilet facilities, while on the road or parked, without being connected to a sewage line. It may also be used in the stationary position while connected to a sewage hose.

Keep the dump valves closed with either method and empty the tanks when they are nearly full. The idea is to send a large volume of water through the tanks and hose at the same time to float solids away. After the sewage tank has been emptied, close the dump valves and put approximately five gallons of water in the sewage holding tank using the black tank flush inlet. This will spray the interior of the tank with water and help prevent solids from building up in the sewage holding tank. The addition of a deodorizing agent like Aqua Kim will help prevent odors. Should you ever have a buildup of solids, close the valves, fill the tanks about 3/4 full with fresh water, drive a distance to agitate the solids, and drain the tanks.

Things Not To Put Into Toilet Or Drains

  • Facial tissues and feminine hygiene products (they do not dissolve like toilet paper).
  • Automotive antifreeze, ammonia, alcohols, or acetone.
  • Table scraps or other solids that may clog the drains.

Winter Traveling

Traveling in sub-freezing temperatures will require certain precautions to protect the plumbing system and your personal belongings from being damaged by freezing. Whenever possible, the heat should be kept set to a constant temperature. It is easier for the furnace to keep a constant room temperature than allow the trailer temperature to drop to 50°F, then attempt to raise it to room temperature. The furnace is ducted to provide heat to the below-floor water tanks and plumbing to prevent freezing.

Some states do not allow LPG to be turned on while moving. While traveling in these states, simply use your common sense. How cold is it? How long will it be before you can turn the heat back on? Is the temperature dropping or rising? Remember, when towing at 50 MPH, the wind chill factor will cause the interior of the trailer to cool much faster than a parked trailer.

  1. When parked in sub-freezing temperatures, make sure to keep a full supply of LPG and plug into an external AC power source whenever possible.
  2. If your stay is longer than overnight, you should try to have 120-volt electricity available. Minimize the use of electricity if a 120-volt power source is not available. to have 120-volt electricity available. Minimize the use of electricity if a 120-volt power source is not available.
  3. partially open to allow warm air to circulate around plumbing lines and fixtures. Insulate and/or wrap your exterior water lines with heat tape.

NOTE
Drain and winterize your airstream if the water system is not being used during winter traveling. Refer to Section 8 – Maintenance in this manual for winterizing instructions.
