Black water spray flush ???

My black tank spray flush seems blocked. No water is going in from the garden hose connection. Any suggestions on what the cause of this might be, or how to fix it?

I would first break all hose connections and check the hose screens for blockage. If you have a water valve that diverts the water to the black tank, check it's position. You may also have a back-flow preventor there, check to make sure it is working properly.

You have a check valve in the system. They will break and prevent water from flowing to the sprayer. Find the check valve and replace it.

Aren't all those check valves, backflow preventers and such in the tank?

No, they are either where the hose connects to the sprayer or elsewhere in the hose leading to the sprayer.

Make sure your black tank drain is open or you can't get water thru the sprayer.

Welcome to the forum.

This isn't the case at all with my coach. I routinely fill the black tank with fresh water following a flush and I use the San I Con hose connection. I did have the backflow valve go bad once causing the symptoms the OP describes.

This is not correct in my particular situation. I can actually fill the black tank through the sprayer.😲

Now, I'm here to tell you all that you must NOT become distracted while filling the black tank this way with the dump valve closed.

It can lead to (not quite) a Robin Williams moment that you want no part of so you need to be aware of when to turn off the flush spray.
