Like anything those knife valves and their seals will eventually fail. I had that on my former DP, and believe me its something you do not let go for long.

Wish my ace had that much room. I have room for the sewer hose and elbow and that's about it. I might be able to fit my red flush hose as well, but no way the accordion stand can fit in there. It's a tight fit for the other stuff, with only about the 5" or so room on the bottom of the compartment.

Use a 45 degree elbow instead of a 90, easier to get aligned with the round hatch. I use clear connections so that I can see when everything runs clear when flushing the black water tank.

My old class C would always have some "fluid" it it when opening the cap. When we got the new Vegas I was happy that would not be the case....NOT
It always seems to have a little, guess the valves aren't fool proof.

I just hook up the Slinky to the drop end and remove the compartment cover. Then while holding the slinky under it, rotate the fitting and let the contents pour into the hose, then hook it up. Only way that works for me.

That outlet will also rotate up so nothing will run out before you get your 45 elbow on. I always rotate mine up so when I remove the cap, no dribbles.

OK, this conversation has caused some additional brain activity so I went out and gave another look to my sewer compartment. Now, this is a 2017 Axis 25.2. There is a round opening in the bottom of the sewer compartment that is about 4 inches across. It is threaded as if something should be there. The sewer line is turned down just barely above that opening and ain't gonna budge. I gave it a close look and tried to turn it up. No way. So, am I missing something? If so I'll give Thor a call..
This thread has warmed the heart of an old sewer worker. Especially the video. Be still my heart!

The 4” round hole is the sewer outlet and should have a cover that screws in to seal the compartment. If you are missing the cover you need to get another one from CW, Amazon, or Thor. The outlet between the two tanks should swivel, it will be stiff. Spray some silicone on both sides, if that doesn’t work VERY slightly loosen a couple of the nuts on the black and gray valves.
