Toilet

Hello all Ceder Creek owners. We are long term camping in seasonal lot and having trouble with our 2014 36CKTS. The issue we are having is that our toilet keeps plugging up. We tried everything on how to resolve the issue and to no avail. I have spoken to the dealer and they said it was a design flaw for which I call BS. Just wondering if any one out there has been having the same issue.

Kevin

Do you mean your black water drain is plugging? If so, I would suggest you do what a lot of us do and that is to not leave any of the dump valves open all the time. Wait until your grey water starts to get full, then dump the black, and follow up by dumping the grey. It flushes everything out and keeps things running smoothly. You'd need some sort of smooth PCV pipe to be able to leave the valves open all the time.

Sorry, I have no idea what could be going on there. Sounds like a warranty issue though.

that's what I have been telling the dealer and they are saying it's a manufacturer flaw and there is nothing they can do about it. Frustrating

Suggest pulling the toilet and get a flashlight and mirror on a telescoping rod and have a look. Next, get an old hose and stick it down there. I suspect the tank cutout is somewhere stuck and is turning and blocking the inlet into the tank. If that is the case, you might be able to get a flexible finger to grab it and try pulling it out.

Interesting. You could likely also buy or rent one of those inspection cameras and you may be able to see what's going on without removing the toilet. I have one of these Newegg.com - 7m 22ft USB 4 LED lights Waterproof Borescope Endoscope Inspection Camera Snake Tube Pipe Compatible with XP Vista Win7 and I've used it a few times when I couldn't see something.

That can be caused by the vent line being plugged. It may not be allowing the air in the tank to be pushed out when the "stuff" in the toilet tries the enter the tank. Have you noticed where the black tank water level is at the time?

Does it happen every time you flush?
