Help... IT's STUCK!!! Waste Tank fitting

Post by Resolute » Mon Oct 15, 2018 7:51 pm

I am trying to remove the vent/level indicator for the waste tank in my 10 Meter Sedan, but unfortunately I am not having any luck. This looks like it screws on, but my attempts to unscrew it by hitting the tab edge with a hammer/screwdriver have proved unsuccessful. Has anyone removed this before? Am I trying to unscrew something that simply pops off. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Try a plumbing Strap Wrench; can purchase from Home Depot or Lowes.

Mine was on real tight. I used PVC Slip-Joint Pliers from Home Depot.
