He uses it when flushing his waste tank so that he doesn’t overflow it. Pretty cool little tip. So, I picked up one from Amazon to give it a try. In this video, I show the Rainwave water flow meter in action and talk about a few other applications for it around the RV.
I use one made by Gardinia when filling our freshwater tank to the exact amount I think we’ll need for traveling so that I’m not carrying too much weight. I figure approximately 5 gallons per day per person which allows for navy showers every other day.
I have a total of 160 gallons of fresh water capacity (two 80 gallon tanks linked) and I almost always over flow it when Im about to go on a trip. I don’t trust the little red lights inside on the panel, so I really don’t know when I’m approaching full. Then I get distracted and forget…lol. I purchased the reviewed flow meter via Ray’s link and received it today! Now I should have a decent idea when I’m getting close to full. Then I’ll know the exact capacity of the tanks. Thanks, no more flooded wet bay, lol.
