Question Black water tank

I have a new 2015 29RSX 5th wheel Wildcat and I am having a problem with draining the black water tank! I open the valve and it only trickles out (there is a clear angel connection so I can see what is coming out) even when I turn on the water clean out. I have checked to see if the valve is opening, which it is, as close as I can tell by actually seeing the valve operate. So does anyone have Any ideas?

I have seen where something was left in the tanks during installation at the factory such as a plastic plug from drilling the holes. If you can get a back flush fitting onto the drain pipe and flow water backwards into the tank to dislodge whatever it is then try draining again.

That's a good idea, thanks I'll try it ASAP. I was thinking of pushing a small tube up thur the flushing hose connection but your idea sounds better. Thanks again.

My fix for this is the same as my winterization prep for the holding tanks.

Warm (not hot) water and a quart of RV-Digest- It from Unique. RV Digest-It Holding Tank Treatment

Close the valves fill the tank about 1/2 with warm water and a full QT of RV-Digest-It. (I know it says 1/2 - what I use for winter prep- but yours is already clogged). Then fill the rest of the way to the top.

Let sit a MINIMUM of 72 hours; a week is better. Dump and flush several times. It is possible you may need to repeat it for severely clogged and pancaked crud. You will be shocked at what comes out. Even squeaky clean tanks dump black the first time you do it.
