340rk- ours behaves the same. Can easily go 5 days. If its really full ours will burp and smells a little telling its time to dump.

Mine will sit at 2/3 full for several days. We are a family of 4 and I'm the only male in the trailer. I just let it go until its really full then dump. I only dumped 2 times during our 10 day stay in Myrtle beach this summer.

Black Tank

Respected Forum Members,

I really do want to say thanks for all the help regarding our first long RV experience and the issues we had to deal with. After 38 days on the road, we returned home this Friday. I must admit that the entire experience was just fantastic and we enjoyed every minute of our trip to Oregon from Dallas.

the wifi in all the parks was quite unreliable, and hence the delay in getting back to you. I did learn how to deal with the black tank and dumped every 4 days. This seemed optimal for the three adults that used the facility. The one thing I do need to find out about is the spillage into the exit pipe after travel even when the valve is closed during travel. What causes this?

I need to also replace the dual USB chargers on the phone docking unit. Could not get this to work.

Thanks again. We are looking forward to gaining more experience during our upcoming trips.

The leaking by is from a dump valve either black or grey based on color or odor. Sometimes the valve blade cannot close due debris in groove or needs to be changed out. They costs less than $10, rinse tank before removing. The pipe will be dry when valves are correct and cap is removed.

I was told by the dealer that Forest River said that is normal operation for dump valves to leak a little while traveling. I don't agree but need to find the correct time to fight that battle. I guess if I have to will contact Forest River direct.

I would contact the factory. I was told by my dealer that my front gray tank had a check valve that allows it to leak. I had to call the factory and then the factory called my dealer to tell them they were wrong and how to fix the problem.

There are some really bad dealers out there these days.

Thanks Pirates55. I have not dealt with the factory or dealer yet. Dealer and I are in touch to discuss the various things that need attention. All minor except for the leak from the black tank valve. Should take care of it. They have dealt with me nicely and well in the past six months.
