WIKSS black/gray tank dumping.

Does anyone have a good way of dumping the black/gray tank under the bedroom slide without retracting the slide or crawling under the slide.
Seems to be a major design flaw.

Both of my sewer hookups are under slide outs + one of my black tank flushes is under a slide. Many times I'll hookup a section of sewer hose + water hose before putting the slides out.

BUT- I still have to get under the bedroom slide to pull the handles. I just end up kneeling down and pulling them.

It's not ideal by any stretch of the imagination.

Screw the handle off and you will see a threaded hole. Visit ACE Hardware & pick up a threaded rod long enough to reach with slides out.
Put the handle back on the other end.

Why not put the slide in to dump? It only takes a few seconds. My TT has a rocker switch that I just hold until it's in, takes less than a minute. Much easier than duck walking at my age.

For us, one of the slides is in the bunkhouse and there's a ton o' crap in there (a pack-and-play crib for one). It's just not practical for us.

I am putting the slide in presently. Just looking for less wear of the slide use. We generally stay 7-8 days at a time.
