I added one to my 2008 Keystone Outback. I cut a "window" in the under panel so I could access the black tank and then sealed it back up with "Gorilla Tape".
It worked very well.

There are several ways to skin a cat.

We always used a simple sprayer attachment to a garden hose. Put that gizmo down into the toilet and turn on the water. The water pressure will spray in all directions down inside the black tank and loosen anything stuck, which then flows out the drain hose. Worked fine for us.

We got the sprayer gizmo from an RV supply store. We keep it in a plastic bucket in the bathroom when not in use. No need to get fancy and permanently install a flush system. Here's one version:

I got mine from Camping World, it's called a Camco Quickie Flush. All the necessary parts for mounting are in the kit except for some silicone sealer to make sure there are no leeks.

Thanks Mike, found it at camping world for 25 bucks. I like the idea of cutting window, as i dont really want to drop the underbelly.

I have used the wand a couple of times because my blk tank sensors were reading full when the tank was empty. Seams that it solved my problem but never liked the idea on walking thru the camper with a hose and some water that drips on the floor no matter how careful you are. The flush king looks like a good idea
