Black tank flush?

Iím in the process of buying a 2014 V3990. I forgot to look yesterday when I was there and was wondering if anyone could tell me if this trailer has the tank flush in it or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just do a search on your model number on youtube and there will be a vid from a dealer showing your unit. Watch it and they will tell you...

My 2014 V3950 has them in both so I would think it would be a safe assumption that you do as well. Front one is in the wet bay and the second on the exterior wall outside of the rear bath sink.

Thank you for that bit of information I really appreciate it. I was hoping I didnít have to go old school on the back tank to get it cleaned out so I will check in the morning. My wife and I actually picked it up this evening after the second attempt, first one being last Friday and me driving 5 hours and they didnít have it cleaned and ready. Thanks to this group I knew where the hot water heater was and not only was it not clean as soon as I stepped up on the steps I saw water coming out of the wall on the floor on the door side of the fireplace and then they had to check all that out as well. Luckily all it was was when they changed the faucet in the shower it was just the residual water in the lines leaked out on the floor and nothing else. Itís been raining like crazy here in Texas and we drove down today and found more problems and after them having it a week it still was not cleaned so it not only ruined our plans I had to make the decision to take it as is with them cutting me a $500 check for the inconvenience of last week driving down for nothing and then today it still not being ready. It was just one thing after another. So we finally left with it about 7 oíclock tonight went straight to Walmart to buy some bedding, linens, and cleaning supplies and stopped here in an HEB parking lot to spend the night and when I put the bedroom slide out I noticed the carpet was wet where the corner of the wall would be with the slid out in. Which tells me the rubber gasket is in need of replacing now. Maybe the slide out wasnít all the way in but Iím 99.9% sure it was. Does anyone know where to buy the outer gaskets for the slide outs and if theyíre hard to install or not? Again, any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you to those who have replied again with the helpful information so far!

Lots of folks here have mentioned REC PRO before. Check with them. There are also several others out there that specialize in rubber seals. Steel Rubber company also.

Afraid not, but lots of folks here are. If you start a new thread I am sure someone will come along and give you answers.
