Slow drain on fresh water tank...

The fresh water tank is very slow to drain on my 2009 Rockwood 2701SS. The valve is the push/pull open/close type. Yes it is vented, the fill cap is off. Just wondering if anyone else has had the problem and might have a correction for it.

sounds like
the same type used on our Mini-Light
the hole in those THINGS
looks to be smaller than a straw hole
taking into account
there is not much pushing pressure
I think it to be what it is
kind of a slow slow drain
you could take it out
and put in a 1/2" or 3/4" drain

the guy we bought our rig from
left it in the open position for storage
when I first filled the system
thought I had a leak

Cool

I think they all drain fairly slowly,
my salem was the same. I would just
open the valve when I was leaving
the campground and it would drain
as I was driving back home.

Mine takes forever to drain too. You could just let the shower run then just just open the gray tank dump?

Or better yet, let the outdoor shower run (if it has one) and pump it out that way, then no tank to drain.
