Need help while on the road! 2012 378TS

It seems as if my black water tank spray cleaner line is clogged with something. I think it is the small while back flow valve that broke loose and is now at the spray nozzle at the black water tank.

I want to find the location of the nozzle that is at the balck water tank to remove and cleanout.

I'm unable to find or see where it is located in the tank at all. I look at the outside but can't get access to see where it is going or enter the balck water tank.

I'm looking for any information on it location within the Georgetown that I can take it out and clean it.

I will drop back here in the next day to see if anyone can help.

Maybe if you have a good technical contact at Forest River that knows Georgetowns will help.


Thanks
Iggy

I know mine are on the opposite end of the tank from the place where you hook your hose. It crosses the coach then makes a 180 with a vinyl hose and attaches to the piece attached to the tank. I have 2 Black Tank with the bath & a half. 1 is easy to access but the other was behind the panel where the water heater is. I saw it when I replaced the support under the water heater.

We found the problem. It was a faulty back flow valve that was located inside the cabinet where the washer dryer goes.. Next Camping World I will replace.

UPDATE.
Afrer a little playing with the backflow valve locate dinthe closet with washer and dryer I got it to work but still wasn't getting any water inthe tank. I decided to check the hot water tank area and opened up the compartment and found a wad of paper that was lodged in at the jet going into the tank. Removed the paper and all is well.
Someone at the Forest River factory was unhappy that day.
All is working well now. Yah!

What panel did you open to gain access to the spray nozzle where it enters the black tank. I have a 2012 378ts and was able to blow my clog out at the backflow valve output side but had no idea where to get at the spray nozzle. I would like to get at it to remove and slightly enlarge the spray holes.
