My red and blue have a valve like your white hose and my main drain valve looks like a typical grey/black tank valve. The large hose with no valve must be a breather. Can you blow in to it? Sorry dude wish I was more help.

Thanks so much for taking the time Mike to look. They all have their own uniqueness I guess. I'll call the dealer Monday and ask them. I'm tempted to cut the valve off and see but it's under warranty so let them do it. We camp on the 18th but it's full hook up so won't be using tank at least. Appreciate your help Mike. --John

The non-valved white hose is supposed to be the vent/overfill hose for the FW/white tank. The valved white hose beside it is the white tank drain. When one fills their white tank, it is full when water runs out of the vent hose. Some people forget to close the valve and the white tank drains going down the road. It sounds like the vent is clogged, mud dobber maybe, or the valve is on the wrong hose, which means the tank should have drained as you were filling it. I would try to blow in both hose. Open the valve on the other hose of course. We don't use the white tank. SHE isn't going anywhere that doesn't have water hookups. When I don't have water in the white tank, I put the two hoses together to keep stuff out.

Thanks Wally. It's either a bad valve or the hose is kinked up inside somewhere. I will try blowing through it once it quits raining. Although if kinked, blowing won't tell me much. Maybe I'll use my air compressor with the blow tip on it to blow it out and see if I feel air out of the fill port. The non-valved hose is the overflow and it works fine. The TT is brand new so no daubers or anything like that.

Mike - on yours (mines a 2016 RKSS ), when you put your slide all the way out is there a gap between the moldings and the trailer wall? I have about a 2" space between the backside of the molding and the wall. Just wondering if maybe mine needs adjusted so the molding goes flush against the wall. Thanks much!

Jgump, I too have a large gap. I think the seal behind that molding is 2" thick. Feel the seal when you put the slide all the way in. It is pretty thick. Maybe it is a vibration dampener or shock absorber from setting on the couch or table. You can put a piece of paper on the wall, open the slide, and see if you can pull the paper out. It should tight. Maybe check the top and bottom.

We just bought a Salem 27RKSS here in Alabama Got almost 40% off. Dealer said it was a early 2016 model.

Thanks Wally! Yes it's a tight seal when opened up. Be nice to have that extra two inches, but oh well. By the way, does your slide start out really slow when pulling it in then gather speed as it retracts?
