Howbout adding the tank flush lines w/their fittings & route to the ABS/Tank schematic in the owner's manual? I have a problem w/the black flush line & it would be easy to diagnose if I had the schematic.

I also wrote to WRV after we purchased the 2003 saying that in the age of cumputers it was rather embarrassing that the Owners manual and data package contained poor black and white copies of manuals and data sheets rather than nice color originals. Why don't all the manuals and data sheets come in a couple of three ring binders? Then Izzy should refer to them during his "shakedown" inspection with the new owners.

E-Mike, I suspect that the problem you are having with your flush system is that the black tank flush does not work. Common problem with the Apex coaches. If so, the diversion valve is installed incorrectly. The "in" does not go in the middle opening but on one of the ends. Take the valve out and blow in one end and see where the air comes out. Change valve setting and repeat. It will become obvious how it should be hooked up.

My 2006 owner's manual has a schematic in the desciption of the flush system that shows the correct hookup of the valve.

Mike another common problem is the anti siphon valve gets pluged up due to there not being a screen at the water hose connection like the fresh water connection.The valve is located in the wall in front of the shower.They had to cut a hole inside my kitchen cabnets to gain access.Good luck!

a) Thanks for the suggestions.
b) Found the trouble- check valve just B4 the black tank came apart (probably not assembled properly @ the check valve factory) so water pressure sealed it shut instead of opened it. I snapped the parts back together & now it operates as intended. I sip tied a spare pvc check valve to the line in case it happens again to either tank. Bob- I couldn't figure out why the @#$% the line is routed up into the coach floor; thx.
c) Sorry for hijacking an otherwise very useful thread; hope this frees the hostage.

Mike:

The tubing is routed above the floor and tanks to prevent siphoning of the black or grey water back out of the hose in case the anti-siphoning valve malfunctions.
