robinair - you can add a gravity dump option. Someone on this group has done it. I'll see if I can find the post for you later.

Also you might want to check our another forum that is focused on B-van RVs. Here is link:

There is some discussion there about GVWs closing.

Have you checked / changed the oil on your generator lately. If the oil level gets too low it will not run.

Here's the link. It's not that hard to do. Took a couple of hours, and two parts.

The link above kept taking me to the POR-15 discussion. Try this one for gmiller's Gravity dump mod.

Interesting update. I called AS customer service to discuss my kinking hose problem, and their solution. The gentleman with whom I spoke told me that they didn't even know this was a problem. That surprised me given how many people have responded to my initial inquiry with the same problem. He told me that he will look into it and get back to me.

I don't have the expertise to cut off a section of the hose. I mean, I can certainly cut it off - I just don't know how to reattach the nozzle. And, if I cut a section every time this happens don't I eventually run out of hose?

I'll update you guys if I get a response. Thanks for all of the suggestions!

It's not a problem once you see how to reel the hose in without a kink.
Here's a picture of how I do it. It also shows the clip I've used to reattach the hose to the nozzle. Very simple and no more leaks!

I do something similar to the photo provided by UKDUDE, except I make an even bigger loop to the right of the compartment. There is a lot of space at top of the hose reel compartment to accept a large loop of hose to avoid kinking it.

It's also easier to store the nozzle if you remove the PVC sewer cap first. The tip of the nozzle unscrews to allow removal of the cap.

Are you referring to the 3 inch threaded part on the end shown in the picture above?

It is not hard to put a 90 elbow on the hose.

1. Cut off existing valve assembly with a razor knife.
2. Unscrew the existing straight 1/2" threaded adapter off the valve.
3. Buy a 90 degree PVC unthreaded on both ends adapter, and a 1/2"unthreaded on one end and threaded on the other from Lowe's or some other source, and some "All purpose PVC Cement" at the same time.
4. Glue the elbow into the threaded adapter. Then screw on the valve. Then, glue on the other adapter by pushing on the hose and let it set 24 hours.
5. Enjoy the new, leak proof hose.

A picture is easier to understand. See attached.

On mine, the assembly is all glued together except where it screws into the valve. Maybe that was what you meant. I didn't realize that it wasn't glued there until I just tried to unscrew it. Learn something new every day.
