Use Backup Camera to Flush Black Tank

I used my flex wand to really flush the black tank. I wanted to monitor the water through the clear elbow so I set my backup camera on the ground by the outlet and monitored the action on the screen in the bathroom. Worked good. Click image for larger version

Cool!

On a related note, I often use my iball back up camera to 'see' my television while I'm setting up my satellite dish so I don't have to set up my receiver and a TV near the dish.

Put the camera in front of the inside TV (and receiver) then plug the monitor into my jumper/air compressor pack (with 12v socket) and adjust for best signal. Done!

I'm amazed at the things folks can think up like this to get a job done. Nice!
