Rockwood 8310ss black tank rinser

The last 2 times I tried to use my black tank rinser, I flooded the floor in the bathroom and didn't get any water into the black waste tank. Today, I decided to troubleshoot the system.

First, I removed the outside water inlet and carefully pulled the unit away from the wall. I found, nothing connected to the pipe nipple on the back of the fitting.

Next, I went inside and opened the dinning slide so I could get to the entertainment system (it is behind the shower stall unit). I found a plastic cover in the one cabinet on the left side of the unit and removed it. I could see a hose inside, just hanging in the air, not connected to anything.

Next, I opened the sub-woofer speaker cabinet on the bottom of the entertainment center, removed some mounting screws and a partition so I could move the speaker to the right to get at the disconnected hose for the rinser.

After reinstalling the outside water fitting, I screwed the water line fitting onto the pipe nipple on the inside of the camper's wall, then made sure all three pipe fittings were tight (the water inlet, the vacuum breaker inlet, and the vacuum breaker outlet). After checking for leaks, I reinstalled all the stuff I had moved and buttoned up the entertainment center.

So, if your black tank rinser leaks into the bathroom, do some troubleshooting and find the loose fittings and tighten them. The other possible source of trouble is the vacuum breaker, they often fail. Mine was OK, but now I know where to look the next time my system leaks.
