Re: new trick for removing head hoses!

Hey if its too difficult to disconnect them, use the hacksaw/ dremel method and cut them ( put the baggies with rubber bands on the ends I mentioned before ) and the just place these smooth PVC valve connectors or find smooth pvc between the hoses to rejoin them. It may be easier and less messy to do it this way oin the long run.

Personally if I were replacing my holding tank I would have a new tank and replace the sanitary hoses...all of them with Trident 101. That way the hwole system is new and you can forget it for 8 years or so.
