Pulled the plug out of the Holding Tank?
I finally had a key made for the filler cap of the holding tank. The previous owner didn't have a key and never used the tank.
I am getting ready for my maiden trip and decided to put some water in the tank and make sure the pump was functioning correctly.
I no more than got about 10-15 gallons in and I heard this leaking sound coming from under the AS. Ran like a madman to shut off the water.
After investigating, I found that the hose (they are all very hard and probably brittle) coming from the water tank to the pump was dry-rotted.
I got the end off the copper easy enough but the end connected to the water tank was stuck. I finally got it off, along with the part that screws in to the tank (Not on purpose, I didn't screw it out).
A couple of questions...
Can anyone tell me how to drain my tank?
Did I do major damage when I pulled the hose out with the connector piece that should have stayed in the tank?
Can I use my AS (trip this weekend) as is and just use the water from the hookup?
If I can use that same connector piece, should I use some type of adhesive or thread tape?
Can someone with small hands come over and fix it for me??? It is amazing how much thay can cram into such a small space.
Thank you all in advance.
