Since you put the fork in it, consider it done.

I know this is terribly selfish, but I think I am going to miss this thread more than you are going to miss your fork!

Thanks for the entertainment.......

I have learned that to avoid dumping silverware into the black tank, I should 1st place my large pasta strainer into the bowl before pouring in the dish water.

Remind me not to eat pasta at your place!

The fork is alive . . .

I've been watching this thread with interest - ok, more like amusement. I have no solution and I'm sorry to be amused by your predicament. But you have to admit a fork in the pooper is good for cracking a smile. That's about all the double entendres I can get into a single sentence.

Good luck, don't take it personally if everyone declines your dinner invitations!

A Fork in the Road is better than One in the Stool

I know... all of you had your fun with Zstreamer and 'Fork fell into black tank'.

I resisted... long enough to rethink my posting on that Thread. Actually, some posts took a bit of imagination, which made it well worth following five pages that did not solve the problem, but sure did make a point to anyone else...

Some mistakes need to be kept quiet.

Modern Stainless flatware is not magnetic. A blade on the knife would be and the blade on higher end knives are magnetic. A magnet large enough to attract the blade of either would solve the problem... if the retrieval had occurred without delay. A fork though is not magnetic and requires some male that is 'hands on' in this case.

The distance from the toilet moveable slide to the black tank surface is 20". A man's arm is 27 to 29 inches long. It takes a flash light and a tape measure to make this study and is accurate within 1/2 inch. For Airstreams, that is within limits of accuracy for the construction of your trailer.

Now, as someone else had reported... can a tape measure be retrieved from the black tank that has fallen into it with a magnet?

He/She wants to know how large a magnet to use for a 30' tape that sells at Lowes for about $14.68. US, not Canadian.

Are flash light cases aluminum or also magnetic? My friend, deceased, would like to know.

(This is how you have to post a sensitive Thread on this Forum. It keeps me away from the Toilet Paper debate long enough to buy a 'better' 50 foot tape measure and a 1000 lumen flashlight for my deceased friend.)

Fork fell into black tank

What's to thank about. Just buck up, reach in, dig it out and have a full bottle of bleach on hand for clean up.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

A guy accidentally drops a quarter down a outhouse, then throws a five dollar bill down the hole. His friend asks why. He say “ I’m not going down there for just a quarter”.
