Draining the fuel tank sump is way out of my pay grade. Not only that, I don't even know where it is.

What I'll do when the time comes is get the good folks at CoachCraft to do it for me.

I know what a cockpet is. I don't think it's dyslexia more like a Freudian slip.

All in my hair, glasses, on my arms, jeans, shoes.......

Peals of laughter from the truckers could be heard all the way to DFW. Kinda like falling in public, no way to be graceful.

Cat don't walk across a hot stove but once.

I had a mechanic once to slowly loosen the drain plug until it started leaking out just a bit, then he quickly stuck up a 1 gallon coffee can over the plug while he loosened the drain just a bit more (but long before it totally removed the bolt!), thereby letting the bottom of the tank drain. Being a metal container he could hear when he thought he had drained enough. Then he poured it into a glass jar to let it settle to look for water. His coffee can had an approx. 5"wide x 2"deep rectangular piece cut out of the top to allow tool access while keeping "overspray" to a bare minimum.

With a pump on full, the foam quickly fills up the tank, and with all the diesel going in there, the only way the tank can vent is from where the nozzle is- back at ya- Moral- on the last part of filling, go slow.
I was baptized by my FC, also
