Anyone work on the No-Fuss Flush?

I have a 05 Safari 30 that we bought new in 06. I religiously clean my tanks and have never left the valves just open if I am connected to full hookups (which is rare as we are boon dockers). Recently the no fuss rinse system just stopped flowing water when connected to a hose. Doing some research some have had trouble with the back flow preventer that is just indoors from the exterior hookup. These fittings are all PEX some with threaded connections so I made a piece that eliminated the vacume breaker/back flow preventer. Still no water flow when connected to 60psi water.

Anyone worked on the spray head? Maybe it is plugged or has a check valve right at it? Curious as to if anyone is familiar with the system, they still use the same one today.

I had looked into this for a friend not 2 weeks ago as he took his out of storage. His did not flow either. Here is a link I got advice from - maybe it will help you. BTW we filled the tank and added a box of RIDEX septic tank solution (liquid type not dry box) - did the trick.

Clancy, how long did your buddies soak? Is Ridex caustic?

Thanks for the suggestion,

Septic Tank Products: Septic System Products | RID-X

Rid-X (I went by memory on the spelling) is a septic tank additive with bacteria that are just itching to eat solids from waste systems. There are no chemical additives just bacteria. Powder form takes time to activate and had residual solids that in a big home septic tank will not make that big a difference. In the RV - less solids the better so the liquid kind is what we used in his trailer. It made the guages seem to work more accurately too. May just be a fluke but it did work and not that much expense (a tank full of luke warm water and the Rid-X). He let it soak for about three days then dumped. Only thing we could think of was some TP got dried in the valve opening.

BTW - the bugs won't all flush out and will reproduce in the tank for the next "load".

I've seen soaking with just water do the trick as well.
