Clogged Gray Tank Dump Valve

Tried to post this while on a 2-week trip while using my phone as a hot-spot wi-fi connection, but it never went out. Just passing on my experience. We were on a 2 week dry-camping trip to CO in our 2018 FR3 29DS and when I went to dump the gray tank at a dump station, I could only get a trickle and the dump valve would not fully close. At the next camping stop in NM, I removed the valve and found wood chips and styrofoam blocking the valve. We'd used our rig a total of 38 days since buying it new last OCT and never had a problem until this popped up. The construction-phase debris had apparently finally all made it to the drain at the same time and with the help of some grease and wife's hair (I lost mine long ago), stuck together to block the drain valve.
The way I see it, you can either work for a living or you can fly airplanes. Me, I'd rather fly. Len Morgan
