Black water tank turbo flush

Has anyone installed or had installed a black water tank "Turbo Flush" on their FR3 30DS? I would really like to have one on my new 2015, but I really don't see how it would be possible. The side of the tank (opposite of the sensors) where the instructions say it should be installed is nearly blocked by angle iron supporting the tank.

I had noticed when I searched the exposed tank areas that the area of your installation looked feasible. My only concern was that the instructions I read said the turbo flush should be installed on he side of the tank opposite of the sensors. Considering how the turbo flush sprays, it seems the sensors would receive a pretty good spray down installed in that location. Thanks for the excellent pictures. Looks like I'll be picking one up at Camping World when I get home.

I bought one and wanted to put it in myself, but couldn't figure where to put it. The dealer wants $250 to install it!

I put in my turbo wash this afternoon after seeing how Camping World put one in. I added a loop in the water line to hopefully act like a trap on a drain. I also have a 90 adapter on the input (shown with the backflow preventor) to make using it a little easier. One the silicon is cured I'll connect the hose and make sure there are no leaks.

Sorry the last pic didn't rotate.

Thanks for the great pictures! Some of those dealers are real thieves! Camping World had a $39 labor special running which is reasonable. But, I'm doing mine myself!

The silicon says it's dry in 3 hours, but I'll give it 24 hours before I water test it. It certainly went in easy enough.

Lfrazee, I'm using the Forest River app and I just touch the attachments button. Then it allows me to select the picture(s) I want to attach.

As for my turbo flush install, I hooked up the water the next day and I could hear the unit scouring the inside beautifully. I looked into the tank through the toilet and could see the water moving. I intentionally let the black tank fill with water to be sure I had no leaks. It's been several days now and about 50 miles with no leaks. I couldn't be happier!

Sdusky, Thank you for your pix! They helped me tremendously!

Installed mine last week over 2 days allowing 24 cure time for silicone. Installation was easy and result was excellent. Won't bother to post pictures as my install looks just like both of yours. Couldn't be happier. Everybody needs one of these. I had seen people using them before and knew I would have to have one.
