Diane’s Return

Diane arrived home a little after 6 PM Sunday evening. The first thing was getting the trailer in the driveway, which is a bit of a trick given the dimensions of the cul-de-sac we live on. We’ve got to find an RV dump station somewhere before we can park the trailer more or less for the duration, so it is now still hooked up to the van.

We have guests staying with us, the mother and nephew of a co-worker of mine. So I cooked a frozen pizza and we played a few rounds of Rummikub with the four of us. Farli and Ritka got re-acquainted with the yard, and Rusty screeched at them a good deal. Rusty hasn’t had to put up with dogs in her yard in two and a half months, so she is less than thrilled with the development.

We started up the Wallace and Gromit movie, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. That made a nice end to the day.

    Re: dump station: You can actually dump into your sewer cleanout, if you’re on a city sewer system and you can get your rig close enough. It may be, er, inconvenient — and best done when a light breeze can clean the air — but it’s do-able in a pinch.

    We patched into our sewer system near the pad where we keep our camper, and put in another cleanout with a proper dump pipe. All done under permit; apparently it’s fairly common, and my city’s building department told us how to do it.

    We are actually looking into macerator pumps. The low-priced one that seems to have more positive than negative reports is the Flojet macerator pump at about \$170.
