Black Tank Vent

Thinking of buying a HW296 and wonder if is there is a vent for the waste tanks and if so, where are they it? Assuming there has to be a vent for it all to work properly.

Grey vents are on the side wall, and black is on roof as you raise the top it's a flex line wear the canvas is. Well on the hw276

Thanks for the info. Going to check out a HW296 at the dealer and will look for the vents.

But I really do prefer the w/E sites amongst the trees.

Vin, curious with this ... why don't you just pull up to the dump station on your way out opposed to doing the "man in the middle" with the blue tote? Seems like the blue-tote is just an extra step and an extra thing to clean - at parks that have a dump station. Please forgive me if you think I am criticizing .. I am not. Just curious to your method here. I like the W/E only sites too!

Wait ... I may have answered my own question, LOL. This swivel stick .... you must be using it while the pop-up is up - yes? We never have used the toilet as we are just used to using the site's facilities, so this type of cleaning I just haven't done before.

Yes go wooden you must use a wand when the pup is setup. You can start Pyramid if you dump at the CG everytime. I try to have a FH site so I can clean the tank everytime now. Our blk tank started pyramiding last season and I had to use a product called unique natural product for rv s and that stuff works great. Tank came all clean and does everytime now.
