Update to original issue. While camping I tried to clear the tank flush nozzle out by leaving the water supply turned on but no joy fixing it. Last night I took the white cover off on the water compartment on the passenger side and the tank flush valve was mounted right there on top of the black tank. I removed the nozzle and it was definitely clogged! All of the holes where clogged up and there was sludge inside the nozzle. I cleaned the nozzle out and put it back in the tank and sealed it all up. Works like new!!!

I believe it got clogged while traveling with a almost full black tank. I left Charlotte motor speedway after 4 days of dry camping in the infield and drove about 3.5 hours before I was able to dump the tank. While dumping is when I noticed it was working and never had an issue before this. I believe the tank was pretty full and from driving around and the nozzle in waste, it got clogged. Just my opinion but who knows...

Ya it was sludge. That makes it sound so much better. My bet is it didn't make it smell any better.
Glad you got it fixed and the cause of the problem makes since. Thanks for sharing.
