JEH412 rinser is a good one. Don't waste money on the ones that go up the drain pipe, it never reaches the tank with enough force to dislodge anything.

I hadn't seen that one. Looks awesome, so assume it works well from your review, I enjoy my flush kit that came built on, and I got a wand with a 5 foot snake and a spinning piece on end, for when our toilet got clogged

We bought our first fifth wheel this summer (used) and it had a "tank rinse" on it. I tried putting water in and it doesn't seem to be doing anything. After looking at your link I would say that something is clogged up. Oh boy... i get to do plumbing again....

There is a check valve (canít recall the exact term) that is connected between the hose connection and the sprayer in the black tank. Iíve read about those valves being put in backwards many times. The check valves Iíve seen are usually in a bathroom under a sink, or in a wall that has access through a panel or cover, or behind the shower insert, maybe under the faucet handle area. People have turned these valves around and they begin to work as they should. Could also be a kink in the hose.

Check under your bathroom sink with a flashlight to locate it.

Iím glad you and others have given us an idea of how much water goes through these things. I generally dump, then close the valve and put water in through the flush, but only do so for about two minutes before opening. I repeat this a few times. I never walk away while doing this and donít let it go too long. I now have a greater understanding of how long it would take to overflow (on an empty tank).

I bought a hand held tank rinser wand a few months ago, and was pleasantly surprised how well it works. I now have a dump at my property, so Iíll be doing that now and again to get the leftovers.

Twice my flush system clogged and both times it was the screen nozzle right at the tank. I've now installed an access panel. Push up on the belly (or drop the corner of the liner) to locate the tank fitting where the flush system connects. With the tank empty remove the connecting hose and then the nozzle. You will need to remove the paper clog from inside of the stainless steel screen nozzle. Re-assemble and test.
We are careful to dump the black water before traveling; the slurry of tissue paper travels a short ways back up the hose but is blocked by the check valve / vacuum breaker. After a while you have the CLOG.
Also: you may want to use the flush system a short while before dumping the tank to get thinks moving up off of the bottom and then pull the gate. GOOD LUCK and be careful. Wear gloves, glasses and keep your mouth closed.
