TOPIC: Black tank flusher out

Black tank flusher out 9 months 5 days ago #1

My black tank flush out does not seem to be spraying, only dripping out, I can only go by what I hear, but it does not flush well at all. The vacuum check valve seem to make more noise that all the other RV’s I have owned, sound like it’s sucking air ? Should I replace the check valve just because it’s the easier of the two, or am I just spinning my wheels, and replace the tank flusher. And has anyone ever done that and how hard it it to get to. 2017 Redwood 38 RL. And does anyone know if that is something they could do at the Rally next year ?

The check valve is probably a waste of time. If I remember right, my Redwood did that after a while. I never worried too much about it as I know it was pushing water, but it didn't make the same sound. Its possible that if it is a spinning head that it may have got sludged and wont spin anymore.

Another thought is maybe run some calgon, or some type of chemical designed to soften up some stool and let the tank run full for a few days, maybe even run it down the road.
