Tornado Rotary Flush

Has anyone here installed a Tornado Rotary Flush system on their black water tank?

Looking to install one, but wanted to see if any anyone has an opinion about them and where is the best place to install on the tank.

works great. Simple install if your tank is easily accessible. Install about in the middle of one of the long sides. You'll be amazed it what is rinses out after the tank is done draining.

I installed one. Getting near the middle of the tank is best. I had to install it on the drain side ( the only place i could) and it work great from there too.

Been seeing lots of pros and cons about it. Rock's video above certainly helped. This will be a Fall project for sure on the BW tank. I want to install one on the Gray as well but, not certain if I have enough clearance between the tanks.
Thanks for the input.

We did the same as The Big Log. I think it works well. I have no interest in sticking a rod down the toilet to flush out the black tank.

I installed 2 quickie flushes in both the gray and black tank. I like not having to use a stupid wand anymore. The way my tank sat in the frame rails I had to install it on the opposite side of the drain.
