Southern Oregon AS Newbie
Hello all! We're down on the Southern Oregon Coast and just bought our first AS, a 23fb Intl Serenity; we call her Abilene. We're very happy with the layout of our trailer, although it does take some adjustment to navigate such a small space compared to a house. The biggest problem we've had so far was a clogged up black tank. All efforts to unclog said tank were fruitless so I decided to pull out the big guns and construct my own high pressure jet stream implement so if we ever get in that tough position again, I'm more than ready to handle. I think I know what happened: we bought our 2018 AS as a consignment from a dealer here in Oregon. I'm guessing they didn't bother flushing out the black tank so whatever was in there from the previous owners had time to settle in and get plenty hard, hard enough to resist flushing despite my best efforts. It didn't make matters any easier or better that I was given advice to leave the black tank valve open while hooked up...horrible idea as the solids remain solid and don't flush away! Anyway, all good now and I just open the valve once we're at 100% full. We're looking forward to our travels with Abilene! Just me, my wife of 30 years and our 2 dogs enjoying being out of the city!
