Re: Clearing the Holding Tank Vent Hose

Congrats on your new boat!

I don't know how your hose is configured, but ours exits the boat and runs into a stanchion. We disconnected the hose on the inside and forced water through it. Worked great.

Additionally, even if you clear the gunk out that created the clog, something will still stick to the sides. As long as the hose is dirty you might have an odor. That goes for any hose on your boat. You might want to think about removing and replacing them all.
