Default Another camper issue.

If the camper sets in this heat without use, the holding tank builds pressure. I thought the tanks were vented.

Mud Daubers are bad about getting in the vent stack on the roof. Take off the plumbing caps and either run a pipe down them or you can also do it with a water hose (just make sure the tank is open

Yikes...hopefully you didn’t figure this flushing after you used it.

How do you decompress the holding take without spraying **** all over the place in this scenario?

Currently buying our first travel trailer and am reading/watching videos but have no first hand experience.

I would think if there is pressure you could bump the lever on the toilet to release it....I did not know those toilets sealed that well

I was wondering this also. Iím thinking you can just open up the drain and relieve the pressure, but Iím not sure on that.

Iím a first time camper buyer too, so Iím loving these threads about them.

It is a vented system so there should never be any pressure. If the vent gets plugged the resulting smell in the camper will make you fix it STAT
