leaky black tube

Anyone experienced a leaky downtube from the black tank? I noticed some drops of blue liquid (Aqua-Kem) on the driveway, apparently dripped from the 90 degree turn in the tube below the black tank.

No one, huh? I think I'll fill the tank and park it in Mark Lucas' driveway.

Sorry Douglaslive, but with all the other problems associated with this Tenement on wheels, I haven't had the chance to get underneath lately. I'm thinking Mark probably thought that everybody buying these things lived on a dirt road and would not notice the leaks.

Never had a leak. Depending on where the leak comes from would determine the type of fix. I had to remove the whole valve assy from my old TT. The mating surface was semi flexible and was held in place by a large hose clamp and had some plumbers putty pressed in to complete the seal. Our new trailer seems to be solid pvc. 100% best fix would be to remove and replace the leaking joint but that is a lot of work. I would look towards finding the exact leak spot, drying it out completely and applying some kind of sealant at least to start off.

Every time I think "We've turned a corner!" another issue pops up. It's disheartening.

I spent an hour or so last night poking around underneath, trying to figure where I might access the black tank and pipe. Seems impossible.

Tenement on Wheels - hah! "It's the new 2015 Shasta ToW!"

Just talked to our dealer. We'll limp along, leaking poop and pee until we can make the 7 hour drive to them before the warranty runs out in December. I'm sure we'll have several more items on the list by then. Thankfully they're willing to fix regardless of Shasta's approval/disapproval. Wish we lived closer.

Lesson learned: Buy local if you can.

Did you purchase the extra year warranty? I know there was a small window to purchase...

Extended warranty

It wasn't offered to me neither. I caught wind of it and for 200.00 dollars they would extend it for another year. Catch is on the warranty paper it says to qualify for the warranty you have to send it in within 10 days after your purchase. funny thing was that my dealership salesman didn't know anything about an extended warranty. Hmmm. I have a contact number to talk to Shasta about the extended warranty. His name is Gary Myers at 574-825-7178. He is the warranty department go to guy.

Yeah, I think we all know Gary.

Is it really worth $200 to have Shasta deny fixes and/or force the cheapest remedy for reported problems? That's *if* you can find a dealer willing to work on the Airflyte.
