On the back steps to my screened in porch, I saw some claw marks both on the hand rail and on the top step. What the heck make these scratches. Couldn't have been a cat, the scratch marks are too far apart. If they were made by a cat, I don't want to meet it, for sure!! Here are the pictures. This first one is on the hand rail:
This next one is on the top step?
Another one on the top step:
I laid a pen down beside the scratches on the handrail to give you a reference. The scratches on the step in the above picture are closer together than here on the railing:
I guess it was my Swamp Monster!! When we first moved here, we heard weird sounds coming from the swamp at dusk and through the night. Never did figure out what it was and after a couple of years, we never heard it again. I guess it's back (grin).
I am also wondering how to drain my fresh water tank on my RV. I would like to empty it out and refill it with fresh water. I have searched everywhere and can not find a valve to drain it. I will go look one more time, but do not expect to see anything different. I have places that opens up the low point drains for winter storage in cold climates to prevent freezing and damage to the lines, so I guess that is the only way. I didn't want to drain the whole system, including the hot water tank, but maybe that is my only choice. I have a Newmar Duthstar, and I can't seem to find any information on line about my problem. My old class-C had a valve right at the tank that would drain it.
I am going to go out and try one more time, then head off to the flea market. Now you all have a great day today, you hear?
