Outside black water tank flusher

Problem!!! When I connect hose to outside black water tank flusher, I hear no water running and get no water discharge out of sewer drain. Can this be replaced?? Is it clogged?? If replacing, is it a very hard thing to do?? Tks in advance for any info!!!

fonzie has given you good advice.

Has it ever worked?

Many vacuum/break valves are plumbed backwards from the factory.
Many leak from the factory.
Most folks will replace the inexpensive plastic ones with higher quality brass valves.

Thanks again
