We have had this Cruiser not quite two years, we take it out one to two times a month. I all ways have flushed the black tank with the crossroads flusher. Our previous TT was a Zinger and I bought a flush king for it. It worked great. I noticed on this unit the black tank was slow to drain. I thought it was just in the design. This last week on our walk about I was talking to a neighbor, just pulled the empty lever, and I heard this loud pop. I looked down into my clear plastic drain tube, and there was a styrofoam cup stuck in there. Now This could have been place in the tank. at any time before we got the unit. It sat on the lot for four weeks after it came in any one could have place this in, or may be the mfg of the tank uses them as a shipping plug. But boy does it drain nice now

Most likely a careless customer, no dealer or mfg. wants to deal with black tank problems. Good thing you were diligent about flushing the tank, otherwise the cup could have caused a real buildup of crud that would have required dropping the tank.

My first thought would have been a careless customer too, but seriously without any water hooked up to the toilet a customer walking thru the sales lot and wanting to get rid of their coffee cup down a toilet would have to cram it down the toilet and would have to know that it would cause trouble later, what a jack-ass thing to do.

The dealer that I bought it from had full hook ups on all there units IE water and Elect. Their sale people made a real showing on how thing worked. Even the owners 11 year daughter got into the act on the demo. They all ways have coffee ready and if there early enough donuts.

That was the only problem at the dealership, They would not supply the Adult beverages, or even a mailbox

Is it normal down south for the dealerships to have water and electric hooked up ? *I'm from Alberta and I have never seen that up here but maybe the dealers don't do it because they would have to winterize a whole lot of units. *I still can't imagine anyone throwing a styrofoam coffee cup down the toilet, that's terrible.

No it is not normal for them to keep them hooked up at most dealerships. Just seems to be this one. I dropped my unit off foe some repairs monday, and all they had was electric hooked up. Service says they add water just for week ends, and only do a few of those any more. They are suffering form this economy
