I'm not a noob but had a blackwater mess last camping trip in our "new" 09 Wildcat. Turns out the black water valve wasn't completely closed. When I popped the cap, I made a big mess and had to cancel going out to dinner that night after dropping off the camper.

We all could write a book about the dumb things we did over the years . . . and sell it to each other ! ! It ain't stupid if you don't know what to do . . . and remember you can't fix stupid ! ! ! Another "learning" moment. Happy Camping ! !

Thanks for sharing. Always better to see someone else do "that thing" before we do it ourselves...

X2, if I did not need to use a toilet at night we would not own a TT. He won't use it if a toilet is available. Plus we camp a lot where there are just Honey Pot's and with little to no immune system, not safe for me.

These posts gave me some good chuckles,,,thanks, everybody. I myself have a clear joint on the outlet to see how "things" are moving along. I drain the black. Shut it off. Turn on my flusher,,,,,time it,,,,,mine takes 4 1/2 minutes to the point of "SHUT IT OFF OR IT'S GONNA HIT THE FAN!!! I shut it off,,,,open the black,,,,,,turn the flusher on with the valve open until it's clear. Works well for me.

Same, big part of the reason why we have a TT and not a PU. Plus with a 4 year old, you don't always have time to run to the facilities.

BBQ some steaks and big ol' tataoes. Have couple of drinks sitting around the fire. Go inside for the evening and wake up around 2 AM with a serious urge to poop. Get dressed grab a flash light and go find a toilet. I would rather use my own (I know who sit's on it) To each his own though.

Thanks for being brave enough to share your story. We ALL have had our moments! I'm always leary of taking the cap off myself, I always check the valves to (hopefully) make sure they are closed.

If what I read here makes you a Noob, then I'm a card carrying, registered, total, and complete dumba&&........

And poop washes off. Proctologists and gastroenterologists (and I) are all still alive! LOL
