I understand that a friend recently mistakenly hooked up the city water to his flush instead of to his city water inlet. Things overflowed badly, including some things recently put in the toilet.

Not a problem in mine since the flush inlet is much different and located well away from the city water inlet. In addition, I use a quick disconnect fitting on my city water and not on the flush, so I could not hook to the wrong place.

That is why it is so important to leave the valves open when using the flush. What a mess, but with it that full I bet it flushed out good. jim

We haven't made this mistake yet, but I do wish there was more separation betwee the City Water connection and the sewar flush hookup. Additionally I wish the connection for the sewar flush wasn't directly above the city water inlet since it always drips. Even knowing there is an anti-siphon valve, it still makes me a nervous about contamination.

I've not been able to make much use of my black tank flush as most of the camp grounds I've used this year have only had electricity to the site and I've needed to use the dump station after camping. I haven't yet found a dump station in Ontario that has a (working) water supply that I can connect to the black tank flush on my Airstream because what water is supplied has comes through a pipe with no hose connector fitted. My usual course of action is to dump the tank then put some clean water down the toilet when I get home, hoping that any solids left in the tank don't go hard in the meantime.

Camping in the US has been better where most dump stations have had a water supply with a hose connector or I've had a sewer and water point at the site.

Not quite on topic but I wanted to get that off my chest!

I use brass quick connects and white hose on drinking water, and plastic quick connects and green hose for SewerSolution and flushing fittings.

The water from these holes rinses the black tank with clean water. It always gets out additional "crap" hiding in the black tank.

This system has worked well for us over the years. We use it every time that we dump Lucy's black tank. We also use this system after we close the black tank valve to put a couple of gallons of fresh water into the black tank to keep it wet.

Lucy has never been winterized, so I don't really know how to winterize the sewer flush. I would think that blowing compressed air through the tubes should do it.

Where did you have the tank tags made?

Any small sign shop or trophy shop can make signs like this. They bare engraved signs in plastic. You can specify sign size and color. I used to be in the engraving business and made these signs myself.

Right behind the water connection on the outside. 30í is under the sink in the bathroom.
