Clogged Black Waste Tank Valve
In this video, I disassemble my RV waste tank sewer plumbing and remove the black tank valve for inspection. For the last while, the black tank electric valve hasn't been fully closing.
Once I get the system apart, the problem is self-evident. I found a wad of toilet paper with what looked like sawdust jammed in the lower portion of the wastegate preventing closure.
I removed the obstruction and cleaned the electric valve and rubber o-ring seals, reassembled. Everything is back working well.

Looks like a little stinker to fix. Good Job.

Great video as always...educational and informative. Nice that you included a short review of the installation and operation of the valves as well. Have a great summer (what's left of it). You're probably beginning to do a little prep for the trip down south.
Thanks! Still, have about 6 weeks until we head south but trying to beat the weather changing with the prep jobs.
