Flush king

What is it? How does it differ from the installed tank flush on my 2702SS?

The flush king is used to back-flush your gray or black tanks. Here's a link

Flush King - Item - Camping World

You don't need it with the factory installed black tank flush you have. A clear elbow is good to have to be able to see if you've done sufficient flushing.

I have a Flush King and it works better than the installed tank flush from Forest River. I use to have one of these in my other camper Tornado Permanent Tank Rinser - Product - Camping World I will replace the factory tank rinser with the Tornado tank rinser.

It would seem that it would be very easy to "T" off of the factory tank flush tube to the Tornado nozzle and use both without installing all the tubing and extra hose inlet that comes with the Tornado system. That is if you already have the factory black flush installed.

Hmm, I might have to look into this.

I was thinking about putting in the tee to have both but the tornado rinser needs good pressure and the factory tank rinser appears to be just a water inlet into the tank (no wall rinsing). When I have the factory tank rinser hooked up and I look into the toilet all I see is a straight water stream.

Something isn't right then with your factory flush system as it isn't designed to be that way. You can hear a really nice spray of water in ours that sounds like a dish washer running.
