We had our boat hauled and on the hard three years.

Customer Question

We had our boat hauled and on the hard for about three years. When we put it back in the water, the forward commode would now draw water for flushing. I purchased and installed a Service Kit###-##-#### No problems encountered in installation. When we tried it would still not draw water into the bowl. There is a slight hissing sound from the commode but no water.The rear head had acted in a similar manner. Without installing a new kit, I filled the commode completely with water, let it sit for five minutes, then pumped the water out of the commode. It still did not work well so I did the same thing again. After that the commode starting pumping water into the bowl. Can you tell me where I should go from here. If you need to ask me any questions my phone number is ********** Thank you, John
