Plugged

Any idea how and/or what has it plugged? Need more info to help. Toilet paper, kids toy? When was the last time it was dumped?

That's the strange part..we have had full hookup for the past month..no idea this was a problem until we were leaving..I was hoping bouncing it down the road would loosen it up..no luck..

Did you leave the valve open the entire time you were hooked up ?

When hooked to full hook ups you need to keep the valves closed and let the tank fill. Dumping on occasion. The tanks need volume to empty.

Leaving your valves open has let the fluids drain away, but the solids sit in the tank. You are now plugged with solids.

You will need to put some fluid in there and let is slosh around for some time. Then try to dump. I would try this over and over. If you have a black tank flush hook up try that also.

If that doesn't work you will need to vacuum it out.

Good luck

Some fabric softener with a full black tank will help loosen the solids.

Mix in a couple of cups with a few gallons of warm water then fill the black tank 3/4 full then go for a nice curvy ride. Rinse repeat until the black water runs clear.

You could use a few cups fabric softener then fill to 3/4 full and let it sit for a few days then take it for a ride as a alternative.
