I recently moved fulltime into my "78 Argosy...but have only slept overnight less than a week total...I kept putting off latrine duty until yesterday...since I was careful to avoid any solids going in...(I forgot that the PO may have left contributions.) TMI
I had to pull very hard on the pull rod to open the valve...but everything gushed out ...things that I do not recall going in...but this part was a success...
The part where I had to push the rod back into place was not...I was afraid to force it since I don't really know the mechanics of it ...when I called my RV guy who was out the day before he said that these rods always stick and just to try harder trying to push it back in...This was impossible w/o use of a sledge hammer...The trailer was sitting unused since the beginning of Summer.
I really don't want to have to go through this every week... and currently it(blk water valve) is sitting open...all cleaned out...but stuck open...I'm afraid to use water now fearing that i will fill up the gray water holding tanks...
Is this a symptom of needing to replace something? I'd appreciate any advice (or empathy) The RV guy will be coming back in a few days to replace the original toilet...I have a feeling that he will be sending his kids to Ivy league colleges with the business I will be giving him this year.
..At least my hot water heater is cooking now...although I'm still taking showers at the gym.
