No fuss flush

Can anybody tell me whether I use this feature before emptying the black tank or after then re-emptying the tank followed by grey AND if not, do I use this feature while the black tank lever is suppose to be pulled down open?

Usually a tank flush system is to be used after the tank is drained and the gate valve must be opened.

Welcome to the forum.

If the device you're talking about is where a hose gets connected to rinse the inside of the black tank you'll find that it's a very handly thing to have. General wisdom is to open the black tank drain valve and then turn on the rinse hose and let it run for a while... 10 min(?)

I use mine a little differently sometimes.

I will sometimes use mine to add water to the black tank before dumping so that I get a better flushing effect and I'll also close the black tank valve after dumping and leave it running to fill the tank with fresh water to dump it again for better cleaning. HOWEVER, you must watch closely to ensure that you don't over fill the tank. If one gets distracted and leaves the rinse hose running and the tank fills you will have a real Robin Williams moment on your hands... don't ask how I know.

Good luck

Rick

Somehow, I think there are quite a few of us who got distracted & are now part of the "geyser club".
