Thanks Youroo, I suppose the warning is to just make sure the tank is empty before running the flush system.

Wishing our 2011 Sunseeker had a black tank flush. Why aren't they standard? Is it something we could/should add?

cllecr, you could check Camping World web site. I think they sell kits to add to the tank. I'm sure others on here will have the answer.

Attached water line to the outside black tank flush, no sound of running water. Disconnected the water. Went inside to the bathroom and found flush assembly underneath sink where lines are connected to a check valve assembly. Wanted to see what this piece of equipment was and low and behold, found cold water line connected to discharge side of check valve!!!!!

Buy yourself a "Tornado" tank flusher. Very easy to install if you can access your tanks and worth every penny. I would not be without one. No more dragging hoses into the camper with your "wand."

Agree, it will probably exit at the base of the stool as those gaskets are sure not made for pressure from the tank or anywhere else. Would be a nasty mess.
