THOR #1728
2015 Vegas

I have a new Vegas and am new to RV's but the the holding tanks seem to be in a weird spot as it looks like not all of the tank will empty if I string the hose over the compartment door, am I doing something wrong?

Welcome to the forum !
Which Vegas model do you have. The holding tanks are in various places depending on the model.

For instance, in our Axis 24.1, the black water tank hose goes directly down from the tank to the ground and then, we hope directly to the sewer. You always want that hose to go down so it will drain as efficiently as possible.

There are many RV owners on this forum who will be happy to help you solve those problems which arise.

Happy camping !

The outlet nozzle will rotate into the hole in the bottom of that compartment. Look in there there is an access panel you can unscrew, then rotate the outlet down to that hole.

do you mean over the actual bay DOOR, or over the bottom EDGE of the door frame?

a sewer hose should allow the tanks to empty even if you are having the hose come out of the bay itself, though it's best to angle the main outlet DOWN and hook your sewer hose from under the bay and up through the round floor plate...

take a flashlight and look into the bay there is a small round panel at the bottom directly under the sewer outlet that will unscrew--its about 6" in diameter.

If there isn't you need to take yours back to the dealer.

Will -- go to the Motorhome Tech Topic section of this forum. Go down the list of threads and you'll find one that has a link to Ed's Manual. This is an Owners manual I compiled especially for new owners of a Vegas/Axis. Go to the link and download my manual. I think you will find it very useful in answering questions.

Like Jamie said there should be a 6 inch plastic disc screwed in an access hole on the floor of the sewer valve bay. Unscrew that disc and you should now have s hole in the floor of the sewer valve bay. Look closely at where the sewer hose attaches. The attachment should be a Y shaped flange. That Y will rotate down so the exit is pointing straight down at the 6 inch hole where you removed the disc. This Y joint can be tight and you might have to exert some force but it should swivel down. If it doesn't swivel go to the dealer -- the factory might have gotten some of the pipe glue on the Y.

Route the sewer hose UNDER the RV and UP THROUGH the 6 inch hole so that you can attach it to the Y flange. If you are routing the sewer hose THROUGH THE OPEN ACCESS DOOR you are connecting it wrong. The stuff you are trying to dump will not flow "up hill."
