Well Mike,t.
Our black tank flush pipe work runs upstairs to the bathroom sink cabinet, then runs back down to the black tank. So up under the bathroom sink cabinet is where the check valve is. That is where all the water was leaking from. The dealer literally unclamped the pipe and switched the connection around.
Hope that helps.

Mike T, Let me explain my post. I stated that I do the flush exactly like Campster does in post #2. Then I was done with the auto flush porcedure. Then I went on to explain how I fill my Black tank and then dump it without the built in tank flush. I was just explaining the fill and dump procedure before the auto flush is used. Sorry if I didn't explain it in two separate answers. FYI my auto flush works great. Happy Camping.

PS: I'll bet you liked the piece of wood to keep the toilet flushing.

We had dumped @ a dump station a few days early,,, and then I tried the Black flush @ home,,, I could not flush it @ the dump station because the flush is on the other side,,, MH was almost new then !!! I guess it was working ???
I am planning from here on,,, to do like one guy said,,, I am going to carry some GEO with me,,, so it can be sloshing around while we are on our way home !!!
