I would think it is the back one for the water tank that is what I was told. The front one has to be the drain for the water lines up front.

Makes sense, they told me but I forgot. Haven't needed to used it yet.
Thanks

Hello Everyone,
Requesting opinion from forum experts...
We stopped by our RV today and the RV was completely dead. Absolutely no battery power, couldn't even start the generator (not a good thing). We had the RV plugged in a trickle charge but realized the GCFI outlet was tripped.

Will this total battery drain damage the RV batteries (6 total)? It's been in storage now about 2 months and unsure when the GFCI was tripped...

It's back on the trickle charge but was wondering if anyone had any inputs or advise.

The short answer is, Maybe. Any wet cell battery will be damaged if left completely discharged for even a short period of time.

You won't know unless you have them re-charged and tested.

Thanks Norty1,
I'll wait until the power center indicator light changes charging status and then have the batteries checked by dealer...
Maybe it's best to disconnect negative of batteries while in storage than rely on the trickle charge. Up to four others can plug into the same gfci outlet at our storage facility. I talked to the manager and he is going to keep an eye on it but that doesn't help what already happened... Upgrading to six batteries wasn't cheap and the RV is four months old..live and learn ...

Hello All,
Pulled out the RV to clean it up and start to get it ready for our first trip in a few weeks...
When we got it to the house out if storage and took off the waste pipe cap, about a gallon or two of nastiness drained out.... All drain levers were closed ....

Anyone have an idea what would cause this? I also recall experiencing the same thing on a smaller scale during our inaugural trip in between camp sites...

Perhaps a bad valve ???? Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated..

Sounds like either a bad valve or some muck that is preventing the valve from seating fully. Might want to try back flushing or maybe a pipe brush to see if there is muck you can break free.

Put another gate valve on the end. You will never have any seepage again.

What about those poor sextuplets? I hope they are ok.

I had the same problem with my gray tank (forward one) than one day just fixed itself. I tried flushing the tank out several times with no luck. It was on dealer list to fix but just like my slide problem they both fixed themselves. I bought one of the add on valves but did not like how far out it sticks but that will solve ur problem. Next time you go in storage just use the battery disconnect and hook your trickle charger up. Have u read my post about my brake problem?

Thanks Heady,

I will definitely try the back flush and may need to try a long drain snake... Thanks again
