So Sid, it sounds like you are pointing to the electric heater element as a possible culprit. I haven't heard that one before, nor have I heard of anyone changing their electric element. Is there anyone that has changed theirs? Is there anything on this element that would create the black sludge?

I guess if this works for you, it might work for others. Let's see some more ideas.

No argument there. From everything I strained out of the bucket from the blockage, there was nothing there but the larger, hard particles of the sludge. What caused it I don't have a clue. I have about 6 months of use on the new fluid and about 90% electric element only. The new fluid is still clean. Until one of the super powers will spend the money for a full chemical analysis of the sludged fluid.....we will never know what causes it. JMO.

I'm really not sure. I doubt it is the electric heater. If it was the electric heater then the camco pink would do the same thing I would imagine. IF it does have something to do with running the electric heater only with the century green like I suspect then it probably has something to do with the way the heater element heats (maybe burns but not completely) the fluid. Just a guess as I really don't know.

All I do know is that when I switched to electric only I started to see that stuff after about a month. When I switched back to burner and electric it went away after a period of time.
