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.


I know you are right about doing the hoses, but its killing me that I would not be replacing anything right now, if not for this lousy OEM ss tank.

On the other hand, beyond the expense, what I would need to dismantle to replace everything would be monumental.

Thanks for the parts suggestions.
