With that, while camping this past weekend, the blackwater seemed to leak out from around the "neck" from the holding tank bay to the hook-up (I'm a novice, so my wordage may be a little vague). It was Okay as long as I had it open and running through the sewer hookup - but when it was closed and not hooked up to sewer - BEHOLD the LEAK!
Any help would be greatly appreciated -
Your 'Univolt' is a 'converter'.......not an 'inverter'. If I were you, I would dump it immediately and replace it with a new, electronic converter that has 3-stage automatic battery charging, and treat yourself to a new set of batteries while you're at it. You'll be much happier!
