Wildwood Lodge Destination Trailer - Black Water

Has anyone found anything that makes flushing the black water tank easier in these units? It doesn't appear that one of those rotating wands will work.

Hi we're picking up our 407reds unit this weekend. On pre-delivery I was introduced to the black water tank "valves" 2 of them. Never seen that before, had other units but never two valves. One valve was installed almost backwards it was hard to notice without crawling under. The RV dealer is changing that. I mentioned your blackwater flushing general question but no one there had an idea. What is the issue, getting plugged quickly?

I'll try to ask the dealer tomorrow, sorry can't help so much, don't have my hands on it yet. You have a destination unit right, so you dumping once or so a week? Not cruising with this unit are you?

Cool dealer info

Just got back from the dealer, says the pressure wand should do the job, " never heard of any of these issues".
SORRY NOT MUCH HELP.

Appreciate the effort. Thanks. On your pdi make certain you flush the toilet and watch as you depress the petal to water into the bowl. Mine shot water out the side and the Thetford toilet was defective and had to be totally replaced

crap

Will do, I already had the dealership change the out flow valve at the black tank. It was set up to get pulled by crawling under the unit and reaching up sort of around the piping and pulling that 1 open. Then going do to the gray / black discharge coupling point and opening another valve to discharge. Holly crap, a lot of crawling around to get the poo out. Of course we saw this during our walk thru, pity the folks who don't make the dealer to a complete walk thru, just because we're experienced. Had them sort of redesign so not to have to crawl underneath. Thanks for the insight will keep an eye out, we won't be putting any water in her till May 5th or so. Temps are too cool at night to trust the lines not to freeze.
