Flush king

What is it? How does it differ from the installed tank flush on my 2702SS?

The flush king is used to back-flush your gray or black tanks. Here's a link

Flush King - Item - Camping World

You don't need it with the factory installed black tank flush you have. A clear elbow is good to have to be able to see if you've done sufficient flushing.

I have a Flush King and it works better than the installed tank flush from Forest River. I use to have one of these in my other camper Tornado Permanent Tank Rinser - Product - Camping World I will replace the factory tank rinser with the Tornado tank rinser.

It would seem that it would be very easy to "T" off of the factory tank flush tube to the Tornado nozzle and use both without installing all the tubing and extra hose inlet that comes with the Tornado system. That is if you already have the factory black flush installed.

Hmm, I might have to look into this.

I was thinking about putting in the tee to have both but the tornado rinser needs good pressure and the factory tank rinser appears to be just a water inlet into the tank (no wall rinsing). When I have the factory tank rinser hooked up and I look into the toilet all I see is a straight water stream.

Something isn't right then with your factory flush system as it isn't designed to be that way. You can hear a really nice spray of water in ours that sounds like a dish washer running.

well its being docked for atleast 2 years here. it seems to not dump right when i pull the plug some runs out then thats it. sometimes when i pull the grey right after it does suck some with it but not nearly as much as it should. hasnt dumped right since day one i guess. So either i get rid of the tank or i rig a little wand up that i will hook in where the hot water heater is. Also since i am skirting it i will need to rig up some way to either remote the valves or make and easy access to them.

also since i ran the hose down, the smell is completely gone. all i did was let it fill and close the valve for a bit then open it and watch the brown fly!

Really sounding like you're not using enough water in the black tank...too much solids. If you're on a full hook-up don't worry about using lots of water in that tank...water is your friend. Back flushing occassionally, using something like the Flush King will also help.

I got a thing like a flush king today. it doesnt travel far enough up the tube. it goes in 1 foot, turns left, goes 3 feet, turns right then S turns up into the tank. guessing it was a waste of $50

?????

The Flush King allows you to fill the black tank with water through the dump valve...the only place the water can go is into the black tank when the valve on the Flush King is closed.

It may be similiar but is not the same. The Flush King has a sliding gate valve on the discharge end of it. See the link I posted early in this thread. The water is forced into the black tank through the open dump valve...only place it can go. The hydroflush you have sprays a water jet towards/through the open dump valve but keeps draining out the sewer hose. I had one and gave it away as it doesn't do anything other than rinse out the sewer hose.

Don't overflow the black tank up into the toilet...it can happen if you're not careful.

Dave

Black Water flush line is the white one that goes to the top of the tank on the left in this picture
