Dave and Kimberly Posted July 8, 2022 Share Posted July 8, 2022 Ok... after reading and agreeing with some concerns about the difficulty undoing the Black and Gray drain cap, I feel compelled to dump another question on the group about the "Dump process". Yes... I also think the placement of the cap is difficult and I feel like I have to get down on my knees... in an area I'd really rather NOT do that in. To further compound the frustration... three times I've discovered that the tube already had some liquid behind the cap (and yes it was, before you even ask). After each of these nasty episodes... I'm careful to check and make sure that the valves are completely closed after finishing at the dump station. To further test the valves' integrity for a tight seal, I've filled both the black and gray tanks with clean soapy water (now that we are home for while)... and leaving the cap off... I'm looking for any water draining despite the closed valves. Of course when it's clean water - nothing, not a drop is coming out! A further note... getting home after picking up our new Ollie on May 2, I've lowered the Andersen WDH Ball hitch one hole, which is 1 1/2". I did this in order to make the Ollie a bit more flat when towing. It's still 1 1/2" tongue high while towing. I say this because I'm wondering if I'm not getting a thorough drain down the length of the tube when at the dump station. And one more note while I'm "venting"... is that every dump station seems to have a different grade... which adds another complication to the whole stinking conundrum! Thanks to this forum... I think I can confidently fix just about everything imaginable on our Ollie... so I'm hoping for some group wisdom on this topic as well! 2 2022 Elite II, Hull #1097 Elli Rose 🌹 Lithium batteries w/390Amp hours, solar.
