Axis-Vegas dumping made easy
I had some foam left over from foaming the engine cover, so used it to close up the opening where the sewer dumps. The foam is stiff and seems to have a tight hold on the ell and threads where the plug screwed into the bottom of the compartment. This makes the dumping process a little easier by not having to remove the compartment plug and rotate the elbow.
To install the foam, I used a manila file folder and fabricated a donut cone which served as a floor to keep the foam above the bayonet fittings and provide clearance to hook up the sewer hose. This permits the foam to lock into a few of the plug threads and should make for a long lasting fix. The foam is easy to trim and cut and would be easy to remove and replace if necessary for valve maint. etc.
Below is a picture of the foam around the dump ell. I went a little overboard with the foam as the stuff expands quite a bit, sometimes more than expected. I wish I had a picture of the bottom where the hose hooks up, but did not think of it in time. I can get a shot of it next time I am over at the parking lot if anyone is interested.
