possibly line kinked or something restricting line left over from assembly. Since its under warranty, don't waste to much time with it

During the two times that you have used it did you have the drain valve open?

I suggest you put about 8-12 gallons of water and 10 pounds of ice cubes in the tank and go for a drive.
15-20 min with a number of turns to get the ice and water moving around in the tank then go try and dump it.

I think we are fixing a flush problem, not a drain problem Aren't we?

Can you hear the water squirting in the tank? I know sometime we get a tp clog and nothing come out.

No noise and no pressure loss when turning the water off to remove the hose
