"07 SeaBreeze Holding Tank flush spraying water at inlet

The first time I tried out my "new" '07 SeaBreeze's great feature, the holding Tank flush, I had no problem. Happy as a lark!
Now, the two times I've used it since, (this is our first full week actually living in it) it sprays water out at the connection, as if it's blocked inside.
Is there a valve I'm supposed to open or close that the instruction book doesn't mention? The inlet has a fine looking washer, and besides, it's spraying out from behind the connector, not the washer area.

Thanks for any insight!

Hey Carl. I jus checked the manual for my 04 Sea Breeze to make sure and there isn't anything special to do...says to hook up a hose and run for a minute with the drain open....that's pretty much all I've ever done without any problems the last couple years since i bought mine.....sounds like something may have busted or shook loose behind your panel at the flush inlet...

There is a check valve that keeps sewage from entering the water supply. The check valve is stuck closed.

thanks for the replies!

So, can I get behind that panel to check on things?

Yes, you can take that panel apart to get behind it to work on the lines and valves, you'll probably want to replace that black tank clean out connection and valve.

I replaced the connection on mine because the hose nut was pot metal and corroded causing it to leak, comes with a new check valve. Ordered it direct from the manufacturer.

I took the flush input plate off the panel and pulled it out a little. I can see the leak is at that connection. I'll look into replacing it when I have access to an RV repair store. For now, I can direct the leakage with a wrapped washcloth. It is, in fact, going into the tank, so thank goodness I don't have to deal with the valve further in!

I tried a couple of local RV stores, they had never heard of the Swan system even had the two page manual with me. Searched the internet and found the manufacturer in Bend, Oregon. The new inlet fitting including the check valve is $15.50 plus shipping.
