We have a cruiser and are having trouble getting the black water flush to work. The valve works when you take it out but not when we put it back together. Can't find any blockage. Anyone else have this sort of problem or any solutions? We have filled the tank and let it soak already.

If you have pulled the valve out and hooked it up to a hose and it works then I would look for the hose to be kinked some where.

It is very possible that hose going to the tank is kinked. Last month, the hose on our Black tank flusher, popped off. Iunscrewedthe hose attachmenton the outside of our 5vr to reconnectthe hoseand wasable to pull about 10 inches of hose out through the hole in the trailer wall. There is the other possiblity that the hose to thetankis too short , pulled tight and iskinked at thetank end. If your trailer is new, I suggest that youget it repaired under the warranty.



P.S. I saw your query on RV.Net and misunderstood what youwere asking. Sorry about that.

The OP needs to give a little more information about his problem. I have read the responses here and on RV.net and it is not clear to me what the original problem was. Good luck getting things resolved.

Ya mine never worked either from new. As suggested it was kinked under the underbelly. Pulled on it a little and then I could here water going into the tank. It seems the the hose is way to long and then they shove it up there and kink it.

Any links or "How To Articles" on adding one of these black water rinsing Gizmo'S? I could use one and it seem like the way to go?

Ours doesn't work either. Only had the Cruiser for a month and haven't made it back to the dealer to get it fixed. Has anyone fixed this problem themselves by dropping the underbelly and looking for the problem?

Hi danskool. Very easy to install tank flush, andyou can get kits at any RV store. Kit includes spray nozzle for tank,fitting to attachwater hose for flushingand plastic hose to connect the two. You drill hole in middle of tank, bolt spray head on outside of tank (use sealer to avoid leaks),install hose connection on trailer and connect with plastic hose. I installed one on a trailer I had, and mounted hose connection under camper rather than drillthroughside of camper. Mounting bracket was included in kit. Pretty simple install, directions are included with kit. Hardest part is probably getting to the tank. Wouldn't be without one for the black tank. Edited by: Wontontr

Should I be able to hear the black tank flush working? How much noise does it make?

You should be able to hear the water flowing and see some flow coming out of the drain, if you have a clear plastic elbow in your sewer line connection. If you don't have a clear adapter in your sewer connection I would suggest you get one so you can monitor the flush results.

Thanks a million for that info.. I will check in to it. This whole thread is good reading for me. I think i might do something like this seeing i don't have one.
