Seem like there was a thread on this and the check valve was on backwards or hose was kinked. Our flush is on outside bath wall and we can see where the hose comes in trailer inside bath vanity then back down through hole to tank. Maybe you can see your? Also we can hear the water flowing into tank, full gauge may be because tank has not been rinsed. Have you looked down toilet to see if full?

Ok. I'm guessing the check valve is on backwards. This is a picture of it.

The words are used for reference since you can't see the direction arrow in the smaller pic. The flow arrow is pointing outside and against the flow of water if it came from outside.

I could hear no water hitting the black tank.

What do you guys/ gals think.

Well I would say that looks like the problem!

Your vacuum breaker/check valve is hooked up backwards.

Rockwoood 2404S- Black Water Flush

Success. Thanks to you guys telling me about this issue, I would have never knows. That's exactly what it was. Once it was switched, it now flows!

Sad that they continue to install them backwards.

Yes, it's super nasty, but I'm so glad it fixed!

Indeed, especially when the part has 'check valves for dummies' instructions molded into it. Should be able to get them sensors cleaned off now.

Common trick for getting the black tank really clean but not recommended if there's a lineup behind you at a dump station:

Many RVers typically drain the black tank, turn on the tank flush and wait till it's all clear - or so we think. You'd be surprised how much goop can remain on the floor of the tank.

With that black tank empty and the tank flush on, close the black tank gate valve for about 30-40 seconds. Open the valve and watch all that residual crap come flowing out. Repeat the process as necessary until things are really running clear. Closely monitor this procedure and be mindful not to leave the flush on with gate valve closed for too long. In fact, most RVs have a warning adjacent to the flush connection to ensure that the gate valve is open. The consequences of filling the black tank, that may have a defective vent, with the flush can be beyond nasty.
