"quickie flush"

I came across this on line, a water hose connection to flush the holding tanks, usually black tank, while draining. Does Sunline have these, and would I have it on my T-30?

Thanks,

Wayne

Yes, a Black Tank flush kit was an option on SUNLINE coaches, we have one on our 2007 T-276SR. I might be wrong, but I doubt that the Feds would have ordered them on FEMA trailers though.

Hi Wayne,

If your tank doesn't have one, which I doubt it does, they are real easy to install. I've installed them in two of our trailers and also on a friends trailer.

There are two types:

The Tornado is the better one and it has a rotating head to spray water through-out the tank and it provides for better rinsing.
Here's a link to Camping World for it <a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=oJlfl*qTN6s&offerid=63155.560867507&type= 10&subid=">Click Here

The basic No-Fuss Flush, just sprays water into the tank. That's what Sunline installed as an option.
Here's the Camping World link for the No-Fush Flush:

Both work well and do a good job keeping the tanks clean.
I always use it on the Black tank to spray it out and fill the tank to rinse it out after each time I dump it. Also they seem to keep the level probs clean.

Good luck.
Hutch

Yes, I have one of the factory installed flush kits, and it does work well. However, the 'whipping action' of the inner flexible hose sounds like it stopped working right after I used it a couple of times. What I do is fill the tank up until I stop hearing water spraying, which means the inlet is submerged. This seems to be about 1/2 to 2/3 full. Then I drain it again. This seems to work well, as others have mentioned. The black sensors are still good in my 2 year old TT, but the grey ones seem to always get kind of screwed up intermittently no matter what I do.

Charlie,

I had a lot of problems with the gray tank sensors on our T-2670. Always reading 1/3 to 2/3 full.

I installed the Tornado Tank-Flush kit in the gray tank and after the first rinsing the level sensors worked fine and I never had a problem with them after that.

We have the factory installed tank flush in our T-280SR for the black tank and as soon as we got it I installed the Tornado in both Gray Tanks. No problems with level sensors on any of the tanks.

You may want to think about installing a Tornado tank-flush in your gray tank. It'll give your level sensors a good cleaning and probably solve your problem.

I rinse the gray tanks out every so often. Black tank on every dump, same as you do.

Hutch

We use the FlushKing and it works great, plus you can see when your tank is clean

I dont know if this would work for the average weekend camper unless you have a Macerator. From what I've learned from talking to the weekend warrior, is they go away fro a few days, clean out their tank before driving home at the camp ground and let it sit empty till the next time they are going to be traveling.

One thing we've been doing between tank flushings is, after we have throughly emptied out both the black and grey tanks, this involves using the factory installed black tank flusher to fill the tank up numerous times with clean water untill the water comes out clear with no debris. I then fill the black tank up with clean water till it reads 1/4 full and run some clean water into the grey tank and leave it there. While we drive from one spot to the next, I let the clean water slosh around in the tanks cleaning anything off the sensors or anything that might have stayed behind during the original flushing session. Once we get to the next campground, or dump station, I just let them drain out before adding anything to it.

They are usually clear of debris and this has so far kept both tank sensors working fine. Now if you were leaving the campground heading home, you might be able to just empty your grey tank out into the yard, since you know it's just clean water that has been sloshing around in there. Unless you ahve a macerator, I wouldnt empty your black tank out in the yard, as the first few times, you might be surprised at how much stuff was left behind.

If you dont have a tank flush kit installed, buy one or use one of the wands that can be inserted through the inside of the coach through the toilet. You'll be amazed at how much sludge is left in the tanks with out this procedure.

BTW, your web site is great. Being from N.O. I appreciated your thoughts on my hometown.

Question: Can you run you A/C off of the solar system you installed? I boondock and wonder if this would be better than my Honda EU3000is generator.

Thanks for the Comments on the website. I really feel for anyone who has to be in the New Orleans area right now as it's just amazing to Cindy and I that there are still large areas without power!! We're living in this 25' travel trailer because we choose to, I cant imagine HAVING to live here with my family and still going about my daily life while trying to re-build my life from the ground up. Our prayers are with everyone in that area since we drove through and saw the distruction.

Getting back to the original question, We can run the A/C, but not for extended periods. We can run it during the hottest part of the day, but only for about 3 hours max. If it's in full sun and we're drawing in a good wattage, then it'll run for the entire day if we needed it. But I dont think you'd be able to go for too long in the evening without the sun charging the bartteries as you're using it.

We've never had to run it for any longer than just a few hours to cool things down. I've been looking for one of the 12volt Fantastic Fans as some days the trailer gets a little stuffy and the ceiling exhaust fans just cant cut it if it gets humid.

Everyone I've talked with says these little fans draw next to nothing, and do a great job of circulating air around the coach.
