Re: fresh water tank vent

Denise, if the vent line had a goose-neck in it, it may have had water in it, which would cause a back pressure. And, if the end of the vent was not covered with a filter screen, mud daubers love to make a nest in those small openings. I found this out the hard way with the vent for my holding tank, which darned near exploded because of the mud plug that was constantly being replaced by the wasp.

Good Luck,

Gary
