'Flush King' Reverse RV Flush Valve

The reviews are very good. I'm going to order this.

It also allows you to actually see when you have flushed to the point that only water is coming out.

This guy's video on flushing a black tank is great. He says basically "if you can't stand to view poop coming out of your tank, either don't buy an RV or deal with it."

I use a clear elbow on mine and have a built in black tank flush. I have had to fill the tank with fresh water 3 times before only clear liquid runs out.

I use one of these as well. Mine has a hose attachment on it but I have a san-t-flush on my trailer. I got the hose bib one only because it was all they had at the time.

Turned out one time I had something caught in the slide valve on my black tank and the valve wouldn't seal. After a few flushes I was getting pretty irritated but then thought, hey, why not hook a hose to the clear elbow and see if I can flush whatever the blockage was that way. Worked like a charm and everything cleared up beautifully.

I would recommend getting one with a hose bib on it just as extra insurance. Saved me from having to stick my hand up there!

I chose to do this project a little different. I believe it is more versatile. I don't always use both eBows. Sometimes I use just the RhinoFLEX Clear Swivel 90 elbow on my 2nd black tank. I really like this elbow because of the swivel.

Ah, this would be a good work around if you don't have a san-t-flush. If you do have one you wouldn't need all this.

Oh, but I have two San-T-Flushes. One for each Black Water tank. I use the fire out of both of them. I mostly use the reverse flush for my Kitchen grey water tank to clean out the food particles. They get to smelling from time to time. I wish the Kitchen grey water tank had a San-T-Flush.

You guys just keep costing me more and more $$$$

Really though, I had thought about buying a clear adaptor just to see what was happing for sure. I use the san-t-flush a lot and have yet to have a problem. I was just running faucet water my down sinks to flush the gray water but that took forever. This is a great idea.
