Question on the Rockwood Mini or Flagstaff Micro

My husband and I are thinking about the Rockwood Minilite or Flagstaff Microlite 25 ft but was wondering if anyone has had any problems with the black water line? It seems like it hangs awfully low and could easily break. Any feedback with these is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Retired 101. Also I am new to this forum.

Owned the Flagstaff for a year before trading for larger unit ( Grandkids). Agree that it seemed to hang low but never had a problem with it. Really liked the camper, just not enough room. Welcome to the group.

We have the Rockwood ETC-181 mini lite which also has very low black tank outlet. Took it to park about mile from a RV vendor. Park personnel guided me into site but back of TT went over concrete curb just missing the black tank outlet. Lesson learned ... take a good look at site your backing into. Have to Canada east coast and back thru eastern US without any problems with black tank. Certainly something to be cautious about but really no problem. The mini lites are great TT but we are ready to move up to slightly larger unit. Enjoy whatever you finally decide on. Good luck

Retired--I have about 2500 miles on my Mini Lite and have not had any problems with the black water line. The unit works well for my wife and myself (no grandkids). Welcome to the forum.

Thanks all for your input on the black water tank outlet. Most helpful indeed. Glad I joined this group because I was pleasantly surprised to get so much response and so quickly.

No problems with the drain on our "Little One" you see in our signature.

We have the 2109S, never had a problem either. However, FR is aware of the FRESH water tanks need for another brace beneath it and are installing it on the Mini's at no cost.

Do you have info on how to get the extra brace installed. I would like to take care of this before I have issues
