Installing black tank flush line

I have a '13 27HFS, but it wasn't until the '15 models came out that an external black water flush line was installed. I usually bring a hose inside the trailer to fill the black tank for the "rinse". Any ideas for installing one?

Buy this and install it:
Tornado Permanent Tank Rinser with Remote Connection - Camco 40126 - Sewer Flushing - Camping World

I had a service center install mine. They strongly recommended against installing the hose across the camper above the enclosed belly. They said these are known to eventually leak.

But, the installation seemed awfully easy.

Yes. Did the install myself but followed some guidelines of a useful review (Google reviews for this product). I like the idea of the one tht spins, but some folks said it got to the point where it didn't spin, so I installed the spray pattern one. I installed it like it was never going to come off again

I've had the spinner type for a couple of years and so far it's been trouble free. I would highly recommend the Tornado flusher. I used to drag a hose and nasty wand through my TT each time I pulled up stakes. Now I dump and allow the tornado to run while I load my truck and TT.

I think the tornado is better too. But that's not what's in there now; and I ain't changing it now.... Lol.

I ordered one of the tordado units. I thought it would be no problem to install. After crawling under my TT I found that the tank is mounted in such a way that I could not find a spot to mount it. The only place I might be able to have room is on the end closest to the outlet pipe. Thats if a angle drill will fit between the tank and frame.

Sturgie I see you have the same year and model where did you mount yours.

Yep, on the outlet side, on the end, about 3/4's of the way up. It has to go on the end; it's the only place. The tank may not get completely and totally flushed perfectly, but the one I got works good enough to flush the tank as needed. My royobi 18v drill will fit to make the hole. I rubbed a little sandpaper on the outside and on the surface of the device itself so the silicon sticks better.

Thanks Sturgie. That was the only place I could find. Just so happens I just purchased a Ryobi 18 volt drill. I'll give it a try. Not the best place to mount it but better than nothing or dragging a hose inside to use the spray wand.
