Need help with my georgetown 2010

I am a newbie. I am trying to find the switch for my dump tank. Where the heck is it? I am so lost.

There is no "switch" to dump the tanks, they aren't electric. You have to go to your waste and water compartment on the drivers side near the back of the motorhome where you attach the sewer hose. There will be two T-handles there, they are the slice valves for the tanks. "Sewer" is the black water (toilet) and "Wastewater"/ grey is the sinks/shower. Dump the black first then the grey.

Just to add to the sage advice that NW Jeeper gave you; when you hook up your sewer hose, that long slinky like hose, make sure when you slide it on the sewer outlet receptical, located underneath the water / sewer compartment, that you give it a clockwise twist until you feel it lock the lugs which hold ithe hose onto the outlet receptical Otherwise you may get an unwanted shoe washing with the contents of your holding bay and that is not nice. Once you are sure that the hose is locked in place you can pull the "sewer" T -handle that opens the blade valve as Jeeper stated. Unfortunately, on the 2010 Georgetown, you almost have to get down on hands and knees to see what you are doing when hooking up the sewer hose and to make sure the lugs have locked. Might I suggest you buy one of those 6" by 12" kneeling pads and keep it in the water,sewer compartment for this purpose.
Happy camping,
Lloyd

Make sure both your dump valves are closed before removing your sewer cover or you may get A handfull of yesterdays dinner.

CW has 10-12" sewer outlet extensions to help alleviate the kneeling/bending problem to hookup the sewer hose. I bought the clear one (don't look) because the black one leaked and I returned it.

11" Sewer Extension
(1 review) Club Price: $9.99
Reg. Price: $11.10 Blueline Ultimate Sewer Hose

Crochetlady, where are you!?!? You had so many problems and were sounding so frustrated. Please let us know how all this turned out. It really sounded like you purchased from someone that failed to give you proper orientation. Hope all is well..!
