Black Tank Disaster Averted!!! (wordy)
Now that spring has officially arrived, I took the opportunity to replace my heated water hose with a new (non-heated) one. While I was at it, I added brass quick connects to both the fresh and black tank inlets.
I have been battling a weepy fresh water connection all winter; so, not wanting to disturb my fresh water connection, I never used my black tank flush. Well, going against the warning stickers (I'm such a rebel), I kept my black tank valve closed while I fired up the flush line. My original plan was to monitor things closely and pull the valve when nearly full to give a big "woosh".
In comes my new neighbor. Class A pulling a small sedan - he unhooks the toad and tops off his fresh water tank. While topping off, his antennae goes up (wife maybe?). The whole time I'm fiddling with my water lines, but, do not want to seem like the "Unabomber", so, I'm looking for them to exit their rig and wave hello.
As we approach the "critical point" of my tank filling, the new guy pulls off in the Class A leaving the toad behind. His antennae is still UP! Here I am running after him trying to get their attention to no avail. They pull out onto the main drag - antennae still standing.
I get back to my rig and the DW hands me a beer and I start to clue her in about the new guy. All of a sudden, my oldest son states: "Daddy... The toilet is making some strange noises!"
Caught it just as it crested the bowl, but, before it spewed out the vent.
Neighbor has not returned yet, so, not sure how he made out...
