Black tank flush

Has anyone had trouble w/ there crossroads trailer having the black tank flush line kinked? I bought a 2013 25rb sunset trail and used the black tank flush and had water all over my bathroom floor coming from under my sink so I bought a new brass vacuum breaker and tried using the tank flush again but no water was spraying into the tank. I then cut open a section of the underbelly b/c I thought the tank rinse was clogged up but what I found out is the water line to the tank rinser was kinked. In my opinion this was a really bad design on crossroads part b/c they pulled the water line to tight and caused a kink in the hose where the hose bends to go under the black tank.

Yep, I have heard of that before. Also the anti siphon valve is sometimes installed backwards.

I have a 2013 25rb also and had a kink in the black tank hose right near the tank also. I added 2 ft of hose with a coupler so there was a nice easy curve in the hose and works nice now. Do not put full water pressure on. and make sure the vacuun break is tight ....mine was hand tight only.
On top of that ,I also had a kink in the water pump hose right at the exit near the tank...some bonehead decided to pull the hose tight when he/she hooked up the pump.
(pics 1 and 2 are before and after black tank...and 3 and 4 are before and after of water tank)

Mine was kinked so bad even after I got a few more inches of hose pulled under it had a permanent crease in the hose. Works better than it did but still not 100% water flow.

Cut about 3" off the end to get rid of the kink and add 2' of hose. hardware stores have a 1/2" plastic coupler to join them.

We just purchased a new 2017 33BH and our black tank flush has never worked. It's currently at the dealer we purchased it from and they are having trouble figuring it out. I'm going to tell them about the kink and have them check the other places too. Thanks guys!

Yall have me curious, so I will check mine also, even though it seems to working fine, as I can hear it spraying good in the tank and comes out drain line good, but will check.
Good job Harley
