I recently purchased a Tornado Rotary Tank Rinser for my Wildwood. The instructions say to mount opposite of the outlet. The way my tanks are situated, the opposite end is covered by the frame rail. Would it hurt to install it on the side of the tank as far towards the end as I could?
I installed mine on the drain side. It's the only place I could mount it. It works fine. Does a very good job flushing the tanks.
As a note, I did drill the holes out a bit larger in the nozzle to create more flow.
Test it by connecting to a garden hose before installing to check the spray pattern.
i didnt get any operating instructions with the tornado
do you dump black, then gray tanks and then use tornado to rinse tanks and dump,
I had a tornado installed when I purchased my trailer.
In uses, I dump both gray and black water tanks. Then close the dump valves and flush with the tornado for about a minute, before opening the dump valve. This approach seems to clear material stuck to the bottom of the tank.
Every tank has its (Own) way of cleaning,dumping,flowing. Placement of rinsing device,angle of tank at dump station,fore & aft, water pressure applied to rinsing device,Ect. Place a Clear elbow at discharge and try different methods,you will see the results! Youroo!!
I installed the Tornado about 1/2 way back on the side of the tank because the opposite end was not accessible either. It works awesome.
Here's what I do...
1. Empty black tank
2. turn on tornado for about 5min(usually lots of toilet paper still comes out)
3. shut black tank valve and let tornado put a couple gallons in
4. Open grey valve to clean out sewer hose
This usually works well for me...

I have installed several of the Tornado tank rinsers. I have always tried to put them in the center of the tank on the side. Outlets for the drain have always been on the end. This has worked well for me. Honestly I would not be without the Tornado. In my opinion it is one of the best mods you can do.
