Last week was my second outing with my A122BH and this time I watered up my AFrame for the first time just to give having water a test run. As I was leaving the campsite, I crawled underneath to open the drain valve and drove the 30 miles or so back home.
On getting back home, I noticed I still had about 1/2 an inch of water in the tank (maybe 1/2 a gallon total), a result of a combination of the drain plug being mounted on the side instead of the bottom of the tank as well as a slight "dip" in the floor of the tank.
My concern is with a couple things:
- What damage will this small amount of water do, if anything, once winter comes?
- What is the short, seasonal and long term sanitation impact of this small amount of water remaining? Should I at minimum flush it before I set out each time?
- Is this bit of a dip natural? It's not a lot, but certainly enough to allow some water to pool.
I really dislike the idea of not being able to drain completely. It seems like a silly design decision to put the drain plug on the side instead of the bottom. And while I certainly could cap off the side plug and then drill a hole on the bottom, I don't want to muck with warranty violations right now (all my mods I'm currently doing are reversible back to stock)
