2014 Sunseeker 3050 sewer flush?

Hello,

I'm trying to flush the black tank. The manual is quite vague and doesn't describe the process in very much detail. I've found this to be true with many processes and features of the coach, but that's another thread...

There is a sewer flush inlet (hose connection) on the passenger side of the coach. I connect the garden hose, turn on the water, open the black tank valve, and nothing happens. No water ever comes out. I'm not even sure any water is going in. Is there another valve I'm supposed to open somewhere?

Any help is appreciated.

City water to the black water flush (over the passenger tire area), open the black water tank valve, turn on the water -- voila!! May need to open both gray and black valves in the event they were mislabeled.

If water is entering the tank at 40-60 psi you can certainly hear it. Something must be plugged, piping error, plugged nozzle wit debris or wrong vac valve installation.

Hmmm... yeah, I've tried the process exactly as described. Not sure what the city supply PSI is, but 40-60 seems really high. I think our city supply is around 30 psi max. Anyhow, looks like I may have an incorrect installation somewhere along the line. Good thing I have that aftermarket warranty. I'm gonna be using the crap out of that thing. Lots of problems with this new RV.

Thanks for the help. Comforting to know there are others out there who can lend a hand.

Once it works, let the flush run with the black valve open until you get clear water or about 10 minutes if you're impatient like me. Then I close it and let it run about 10 minutes, don't walk away because you might forget it's running and then you'll end up wondering why it's running off your roof. This lets water build up to rinse the corners out, then open the black valve. Shut down the flush and you're done.

There are some black tank flushes that tell you not to close the dump valve while you are flushing? Any thoughts on this?

Because of the potential to forget about it, the black tank fills up and makes a huge mess.

I stand there with it while it's spraying with the black valve closed so that way I don't get distracted by a squirrel.
