Black Water Flush

I'm having trouble with my black water flush. No water will enter the tank. Any ideas?

Sounds like maybe the check valve may be stuck.
Try poking it with a tent stake or something of the sort to dislodge it.

Turbs, I think he means the TurboFlush inlet. That valve is inside the camper. Mine is located under the vanity.

There could be trash in the sprayer itself. This could involve removing the sprayer from the tank wall and removing the paper or crud that has blocked the jet.

The coach has the San T Flush system. I looked under the sink last evening and did not see anything like your picture.

I don't know anything about that system (sorry).

However there has to be a vacuum break (check valve) somewhere to prevent reverse suction/ siphoning of black water overboard.

Your first try to use it this year?? I found on my old Dutch Star that the small spray holes could get plugged when the "stuff" dries over winter. If I kept pressure on it for an hour or two eventually it would unplug itself.

Boowho??

We're headed out tomorrow for the weekend. I filled the black tank this evening and will dump it tomorrow night, hopefully there is just something stuck on it.

UPDATE | filling the tank and letting it sit over night in addition to adding ice while we drove this afternoon did not solve the problem. I suppose something is wrong with the check valve.

EJM4,

Did you ever figure out this problem? On my 2013 water will enter into the black tank from the flush line but there seems to be back pressure. When I remove the hose from the flush line about a quart of water will drain back out of that line.
