Re: Holding Tank

As others have suggested, it is possible to use a large flat screwdriver to lift the cap a little bit. I would add that as soon as you can fit the red straw tube of some WD40 under the lip of the cap, give it a squirt all around.

 

 

With best regards,

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Holding Tank

 

Hello,
Till now, I never had to open my black water holding tanks. Today I tried to remove the black plastic caps on deck by turning and lifting with no success. I didn't force to much to avoid braking them. What is the correct way to open them?
