I just purchased a 2014 FR3 30DS and i am trying to find the black tank flush. i have paperwork mentioning it but cannot find the hookup. There are only two water connections on the panel, fill and city.

Thanks.

Can you post a photo of your water/wet bay or where the hose(s) connect?

My 2014 25DS did not come equipped with a back tank wash. It was added either in 2015 or 2016 models.

Thanks everyone. I didn't think it had one but i found in the papers that came with the unit an instruction sheet for a flush. I assumed it was there somewhere. I will give up looking.

My 2017 Windjammer 3029w came with it, but not too impressed on how well it works. Can't see an improvement over just fill and dump over and over.

FR3 Black water flush

We have a 2015 FR3 30DS, and it does not have a flush. Did some research, and this is what we found:

Valterra F02-4350 Reverse RV Flush Valve
Sold by: Amazon.com LLC

Works amazing! You can flush both black and gray tanks. Cost ~$30 with Prime.
Leave it attached, except when driving. Easy on....easy off.

Hope this helps.

if you have access to your black tank, "quickie flush" is the answer, ... it is installed "inside" the tank just like the factory flush unit and is a great product, ... I've installed four, easy to do, and then you have a flush unit that can be better than what the factory would install, ... because, the factory installs their unit just above the drain valve, ... so, if you spray while the drain valve is open and draining, the spray is against the flow trying to get out, ... you can mount "q-f" on the opposite side of the tank and the spray will help push the flow towards the drain, ...

Have a 2016 Prime Time, division of FR, the black tank flush on this unit is located in same compartment as the battery disconnect switch and the outside shower controls. It is marked "Black Tank Flush"

The earlier FR3's did not come with a black tank flush. Not sure if one can be added, easily. We bought a spray wand with rotating heads from CW and my DW will stick it down the toilet when we dump and it does a pretty good job flushing the tank.
