Grey water

Here is a new one, when I empty my grey water the water come out slow then ear some bubbling and it stop flowing out as if empty. If I close the trap and re open it, it bubbles again and a little come out then stop as if empty again. Look inside at the gauge and it show 1/3 full not empty? Obviously it looks like it is not emptying fully for some reasons and I am pretty sure it is the case since it takes less time now to fill it up.

I would guess you have the hole that they cut in the holding tank for the inlet in the holding tank. I had the same issue but was under warranty. They had to remove the drain pipes and remove the obstruction.
Good luck.

Or the dreaded stone mountain keeping things from working properly. Whether it is the stone mountain or a blockage of some other sort, you definitely have a clog of some sort. Do you flush your tank? What tank management method do you use (i.e. drop ins, geo method, none).

I had a similar problem not long ago and figured it out myself. I had purchased a rubber doughnut to put on the end of my drainage pipe where it enters the ground. I though it was great because it keeps the smell from coming up from the sewer line on a full hookup site. The only problem is when it is time to drain the tanks guess what happened. Yup I get a full flow for a short while and then a trickle with a glug glug every so often. I discovered that it was not getting any air where it enters the ground and would not let the air escape the sewer line. Easy fix I just remove the doughnut when its time to drain the camper tanks.

That sounds like the campground sewer line isn't properly vented.

The only way it could be a (Stone Mountain) is if they are Crapping in the (Sink)! It is their (Gray Tank) not draining! Hole saw Plug left in Tank! Youroo!!

X4 on the hole saw plug.
What year is your mh?

Our dealer said "the gray ones aren't to bad, IT'S THOSE &%$ BLACK TANK PLUGS."
I suggested he mail the black ones to Forest River quality control, just the way they are when they take them out. He said that was an excellent idea and he would send the next one , ours was already in the trash.
