In tank pump in my 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon GL Campmobile stuck so no flow. Level float also stuck. Both ok after manipulation by hand and for the float cleaning the wand. Stuck pump has happened more than one time. For both, probably a little biofilm buildup, though I do use bleach in the tank periodically. mcneely
