Hi! New here. Posted first post in Welcome forum. Now to ask a question.
We have a 2001 Cedar Creek 5th wheel and are permanently parked. Been in it for less than a month.
There are three holding tanks: Galley, Bathroom and Black. Each has a pull valve, like the braking system on a bicycle (the tube and wire part, not the handle-bar squeeze part...).
Galley and Black water pulls have little-to-no resistance when either pulling (to open) or pushing (to close). When I open the main valve it instantly drains what I believe to be both galley and black waters. So, two questions (maybe 3):
1) Do you think there is a chance for backwater contamination of the galley tank? Under what conditions? And is that bad? I don't smell anything so far. (Well, once I did, but it went away after I ran the galley water for a minute.
2) Is this something that desperately needs repair? As I said, we are permanently parked and actually haven't a tow vehicle. The under-carriage is all covered up, so you can't even see the tank's and their connection areas. (Sorry- don't know proper lingo for stuff yet!
) Since we don't take it anywhere, maybe it is something I can just deal with???
3) Guess there's no third question after all
