This may not be new to many of you but, after a few years of fighting the compartment door on my Axis 24.2 while dumping waste, a light bulb went on and I made a simple change to it.
The problem is that the door opens down partially blocking access to the hose connection. This is compounded by the fact that the Axis is already low to the ground leaving a fairly narrow space to work with to begin with.
I removed the door and flipped it over. I use a bungee cord to hold it open when dumping. The decals did not align anymore so I just removed them.
While I was at it, I replaced the screws that hold the round access ring in the bottom of the compartment. The ones Thor used were about an 1/8th of an inch too long and can cut you when you are inserting or removing the sewer hose.
