I don't know what brand of black tank flusher came with my trailer from the factory, but I'm wondering if excessive water pressure is a concern when using it. Naturally, I would not use the same pressure regulator or hose that is used for fresh water, but I just wondered if the plumbing for the flush system would stand up okay to unregulated pressure.

Good question because I actually branch my water off at the campground spigot and don't restrict the water to the flush.

Since the end is open, the pressure would never be as high as in a closed system.

We had one installed when we purchase our Wildcat 29RLBS. It works great. A whole better than draging the hose into the camper!

Thanks, Lou. One more thing I can quit worrying about. I appreciated your input, as always.

Cool

We have a 92 Carriage Cashey 2600 and I started to install one on our black tank. According to the instructions I was to drill a hole on the far side away from the drain. Well this was not going to work since the tank was about 4 inches from the frame and I had no tools that would fit. So to the local RV shop I went. They said no problem. Right..they just found a convenient spot and drilled away. It seems to work ok because the water flows but not sure of the spray pattern in the tank.
