Right. If you define explosion as a sudden release of energy, it might not have been the fiery boom that we are envisioning. Could have been that the bottom suddenly fell out of it. Which would be almost as bad, I guess. Nothing to sniff at, either way.

She said they're in a Forest River. I wonder if they'll be at Goshen?

Black water tank explosion brings out best in tight-knit military RV community « ChristianAdventurer2
Never heard of this but guess it does happen, but what it does say is clean the tank every time you go camping and don't leave poo tank open when on full hook up. Make sure vent is clear and hasn't got plugged. If you bought your RV used don't trust the last owner to have done this stuff right, Flush the tank to make sure there is no build up. The only question I have is how do you make sure vent is working?

Get on the roof, remove the vent cap and shove a garden hose down it with the water on and see if you get water out of the outlet.

Makes me wounder what he was eating, Maybe that's why Turbo doesn't use his, at least that is what OC told me. May be Turbo knows something we don't.

Before I took opportunity on hot days to see of pressure came up through the toilet when I opened the valve. No pressure means the vent is clear.

Now that I have a walk on roof I can see trying OC's way.

That came straight from FT Turbs mouth and Ms. Amy said he might not use it, but she sure does. So draw your own conclusions, Ms. Amy does NOT speak with forked tongue like FT Turbs does.
