Intruder black tank flush

Does anyone know where the vacuum break valve for the black tank flush line is located in a 2001 vintage intruder?

When I hook up the hose an pressurize it I do not get water flow.

Now it is possible the outlet in the tank is plugged but I'd like to check the valve also.

Thanks!

I was told that it is on top of the tank where the flush line enters.
However this was for a 08 Tuscany, but knowing Thor, it may
help you. Mine did this one fall and then mysteriously fixed itself.
Been fine for two season afterward.....go figure.

hmmmm ... if it is at the top where the line enters I can't see how it could become plugged. Sure hope It's slightly more accessible than that!

I was told it was likely not plugged, but rather stuck. It is a spring loaded
check valve.

It is very very very possible the outlet in the tank is plugged.. I drive a 2005 Intruder, On my coach in the dump end of the wet bay there is a metal plate It has some labels and such on it.. If I remove it the Vacuum breaker is behind it ABOVE the tanks.

"The Flusher" (the brand of nozzle they used) is also behind it, or rather was behind it.. The Tornado (The one I replaced it with) is still behind it. This unit has a check valve in the head.

What I found.. "Contents" had back flowed into the head on "The Flusher" and clogged the nozzle.. The check valve on the Tornado flusher prevents this.. That said, it works no better than the original, but it does work.

Note: on many RV's the vacuum breaker is higher still. INSIDE the bathroom.

But pulling that panel will let you trace the line.
