Can someone please tell me where the black tank flush connects to the black tank, and the nature of that connection? Is it just a hose outlet? Some kind of sprayer?

Thanks

It's a sprayer, but as to where it is mounted is anyone's guess. I doubt if any two are in the exact same location as it is very doubtful they use a jig/fixture for location/mounting. When I toured the factory, that was one startling fact I didn't see,(being in mfgr my entire career) was the lack of jigs, fixtures, and locating devices being used. It really amazes me how they do as good a job as they do without these items so common on really assembly line production.

I feel that the gentleman( used loosely) that gave me my walk through my have honestly never been in the rockwood roo 23ss In his life! Just 2 nights ago I went through the rig with a philips screw driver and learned more in 25 minutes on my own then from my walk through. Sad! But you got to love a black water flush!

I'm a plumber so I have an appreciation of a good caulk joint and the guy who silicone the furnace exhuast might have well been blind! Lol? I guess

Not sure how its mounted, but mine runs into the bathroom cabinet, then into the back compartment and then thru the floor. Used it once and it sounds like its a sprayer of some kind. May get a clear elbow just to see how well its working.

We love ours, and not wanting to give the wrong impression, We looked at about every hybrid make and model around here and the Roo/Shamrock appeared to be the best quality. It would not have taken much more effort or cost for a better overall looking product.

My valve is about half way in the middle of the trailer and doesn't have a cable, but a long alum rod to push and pull the valve open. I just slit the underbelly and put a pc of alum inside the slit and sheet metal screwed it shut.
