MkV holding tank (stargazer) Posted: 8:26:52 pm on 9/7/2012 Modified: 8:28:53 pm on 9/7/2012
what would the approximate time be before requiring a pump out? I know this is entirely dependent on usage but if I could get some input here would be great
I'm having bowl backup to what I believe is abnormally premature

Lawrence: You should never have sewage backing up into the bowel. Even if your holding tank was compleatly full (not a good thing to have happen) any excess should come out through the vent (on the port side of the hull). If you are getting back pressure on the discharge hose from the toilet to the tank then you most likely have a blocked vent line.

Lawrence, this Forum is full of threads which relate to holding tanks and backing-up toilets!! It's a recurring problem it seems!. A recent one starts on 5/28/2012 and may be helpful.
