@doc73 I know I didn't mean it the way I write it and it wouldn't let me edit or delete it. Sorry didn't mean you were wrong. I'm newer to water pumps in pups and was always told not to run them dry. Sorry again if it sounded like I was saying your wrong

No, no worries. Sometimes we worry to much about stuff (like me), such as running the pump a few seconds dry. I just wanted to say how my screw up seemed to work out so you'd not feel worried about a dry run.

Oh ok. Yeah it scares me when the water starts burping I start to worry about ruining the pump.

Dutchmen,
With ours (and our previous Coleman), we have problems draining the sink when using the black 3/4 hose adapter as the connector to sewer/blue tank. It drains when it wants to although playing with it sometimes helped. Thought I had it beat on the 25146 but was wrong. Am going back to the 1-1/2 PVC drain pipe I put together for the Coleman.

I still use the 3/4 hose connection, but found that if I unscrew the main dump hole on the grey tank, it seems to relieve the vacuum effect and water then drains more freely.
