slow gray water drain

I have a 2012 378xl. Draing my gray tank takes an hour. I have snaked the drain valve and opened the air vent under the sink next to the shower, without success. I am handicaped and can't get on the roof.Any ideas??

Sounds like there is a rag or something blocking the drain valve. I've heard of a disk that is left over from cutting holes in the tank when being installed with the hole cutters. Your coach still under warranty? Let the dealer deal with it.

I had the same thing happen with mine a month after purchase. Most likely it is the cover that was cut out when built & they dropped it in instead of taking it out. You need a dealer & it will be under warranty.

Add us to the list of slow gray drain, repaired under warranty.

Another example of how a tiny improvement in quality control would save Forest River BIG $'s.

Anybody care to guess what FR pays the dealer to remove these disks. Bet it's A LOT more than the few seconds it would have taken to remove them during the manufacturing process!

Take it to the dealer. Even if it over 1 year Forest River will probably pay for the repairs.
Contact Forest River first.
