well its being docked for atleast 2 years here. it seems to not dump right when i pull the plug some runs out then thats it. sometimes when i pull the grey right after it does suck some with it but not nearly as much as it should. hasnt dumped right since day one i guess. So either i get rid of the tank or i rig a little wand up that i will hook in where the hot water heater is. Also since i am skirting it i will need to rig up some way to either remote the valves or make and easy access to them.

also since i ran the hose down, the smell is completely gone. all i did was let it fill and close the valve for a bit then open it and watch the brown fly!

Really sounding like you're not using enough water in the black tank...too much solids. If you're on a full hook-up don't worry about using lots of water in that tank...water is your friend. Back flushing occassionally, using something like the Flush King will also help.

I got a thing like a flush king today. it doesnt travel far enough up the tube. it goes in 1 foot, turns left, goes 3 feet, turns right then S turns up into the tank. guessing it was a waste of $50

?????

The Flush King allows you to fill the black tank with water through the dump valve...the only place the water can go is into the black tank when the valve on the Flush King is closed.

it is like a flush king

but as i said from the valve the pipe goes in 1 foot, turns left, goes 3 feet, turns right then S turns up into the tank. It was too much for the jet to get to.

It may be similiar but is not the same. The Flush King has a sliding gate valve on the discharge end of it. See the link I posted early in this thread. The water is forced into the black tank through the open dump valve...only place it can go. The hydroflush you have sprays a water jet towards/through the open dump valve but keeps draining out the sewer hose. I had one and gave it away as it doesn't do anything other than rinse out the sewer hose.

Don't overflow the black tank up into the toilet...it can happen if you're not careful.
