Newbie help!

We're getting ready to go home and want to empty the tanks. The black water won't empty when the valve is pulled. It is 2/3 full and I'm not sure why it won't go. We do have a black water flush so I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong. Help!

Does it feel like it's sliding open the valve? Try opening and closing a bunch of times and see if it cuts loose. Maybe the valve stem is not attached properly?

As soon as it's pulled it should start to flow. Doubt it'd be blocked so it's probably the valve not opening.

Or maybe debris from when they cut into the tank is blocking it. Check on this site about others who experienced this.

Good luck,

Figured it out! I have a second valve on the other side of the camper behind the entry stairs. Once I pulled it and then pulled the main one it all worked. I'm learning!
