It's not the connect version. Mikey and I never mentioned the Connect in this topic.
You subconsciously added that misunderstanding based on a different post.
excellent analysis thanks for clearing that up. jk

I thought he crammed a TM into a mini transit, that would be cool if it actually fit but I doubt u would be able to fit any vac hose reel.

Sapphire had a 370 in a Transit Connect and sold them until the payload capacity was lowered.

I think I've been asked twice in the last 5 or so yrs?

Both were far flung jobs during a drought, and they were on tank supply.
I think the $150 travel charge was also a deciding factor in those jobs

I get asked probably once every 2 weeks if I need the clients water....
Well... no.
I carry 185 gallons of PURE water on board.
Only 1-2 times have I NEEDED to hook up to a water source, and usually, it’s on a HUGE job.
Do I care if I’m wearing out my brakes, transmission, or motor?
NO. It’s worth the results I get with the system I use.
At times, I may even fill an additional 8, 6 gallon water jugs, (the ones I use when I do VLM), and take those to the big HWE jobs I do....

Where you are it's necessary. Where I am, it's not.

I remember a few times when I cleaned a vvacated home that was for sale during winter. They had the whole house winterized. Toilet seats taped off, the works. What would I have done, turn the water back on? Use the neighbors water? (please note these were huge houses with huge yards, so the nearest neighbors faucet would have been at least 200-300 feet away)

Yes, turn the water back on. Turn it off when your done and open the tap to drain.

Winterizing a house is pretty difficult and not always the best thing to do. You actually have to blow out all the pipes, drain the toilet tank, block the toilet and all the drains because there will be no water in the p traps, etc. Much easier to leave the heat on.

Thanks for clearing that up, Lee and Ron. After they winterize a house, there is NO water in any pipes. Im not going to be the one to turn it back on. It is extremely rare but I have run into a few over the years.

Or the time we were running three trucks and I had the one without a water tank and had a job out in the boonies (way out of town) and had to hook up to the outside water faucet. Had to clean out the wand jets every 5 minutes even though there were numerous inline filters on the TM. thats crazy
