this part is widely used on many rvs, mostly low end units...
without the a/s part #, don't know if this is a new version.
i doubt it.
yea it sounds impressive the first few months...
then the flow slows, as it loses punch.
there are no rotating parts and the tank is rectangular so there isn't any swirling water either.
recent units have this 2 bits (csa models have a slightly differerent one)
601441 Tank flush, no-fuss (vacuum breaker & check valve)
601441-01 Nozzle, tank mounted, no-fuss flush
the 'nozzle can plug from the tank side OR back fill side.
mine was plugged from the back fill side as the CHECK VALVE crumbled to bits, in the first few months.
gravel or other debris in the water line/hose plugs them too...
if turds or paper plug it from the tank side, this stuff might soften naturally or turn to cement
that really depends on the nature of the turd, (as in life)
while the 'fresh water' system is pex and tested/rated for pressure,
the sewage side is butyl or some sort of white/black stuff and NOT capable of withstanding pressure.
so gene, yours might be fine for now, and i'm sure many folks have units that work.
but IF you travel much or really run a lot of stuff through the tanks....
the oem btf is just another cheap part, poorly installed and really hard to service.
we use this...
because it works, is fast, attaches easily outside the rig, works on both tanks, and so on...
