    Uh-oh!!!

    DW wife said the kitchen sink was not draining on our Imagine 2670MK. That meant it was time to drain the black tank, then the gray's. Went outside, pulled the black tank t-valve, and nothing. lifted the rhino hose at the TT outlet connection and it was empty. Closed/pushed in the black tank valve, then opened the front/kitchen gray tank and it drained and I left it open. Re-tried the black tank and got a trickle of a flow..... Now what?? Suggestions???

    Thanks!

    In your opinion is the valve opening or could the cable have come off?

    What does the pull feel like?

    It doesn't feel out of the norm, it feels like it always does.

    Can only be three things

    Valve not opening
    Valve open and plugged
    Tank is empty

    What are your thoughts on how full it is?

    I am sure you know to use lots of water when flushing. Do you think it could be a block?

    Is there a chance it was not closed all the way and drained all the liquid ? Unlikely but....

    I would open the black valve and run the tank flush a small amount to see what happens

    Do you have a clear elbow to see?

    Just make sure you donít run it long Donít want to add more water if it wonít drain

    Well, I can definitely confirm its not empty. I suspect a blockage. After each drain, I usually open the toilet valve for about two full cycles to add water before "adding any solids". I know I want to avoid mounds due to not enough water. So what options do I have if it is a blockage?

    I should add, it's probably been 3 days since last black tank drain, and it worked fine then.

    I would run the tank flush a bit to see if anything starts to flow
    Not a lot though because you donít want to make it worse

    You can get tank clean outs that hook onto the outlet and you put a hose on it to shoot water from the outside in. But I donít know how effective they are. Quite the distance from the connection to the tank

    NB Canada pretty much got the causes bang on. If you look down the toilet can you see or hear liquid? If so the you have a clog. Happen to us last summer on our last trip but it was all on us for carelessly not using enough water. This helped us get back on track. https://youtu.be/BUmPMGDEKxY we modified the technic a little but the concept is the same.

    By tank flush.... You mean where I hook up a non drinking hose to the fitting at the side of the trailer?
