Black tank flush

I don't know how to search the sight or if there is a way to search the site for specific questions or key words, so here is a question I'm sure has been answered but I just can't find it.
Camco dual flush
Camco rhino flush
Flush King.
Which would you get
I have a jayflight 26bhs 2016 if that matters with the black tank flush that comes with the elite package.

None of the above.

View this YouTube and you will see why:


This is what I recommend:
Camco 40123 Quickie Flush with Back Flow Preventer.

No moving parts to jam. Others like this are designed to spin. Not a good thing in this application.

Great video.
So my tt comes with a black tank flush system of some sort. Not sure what it does. Spray spin pour? I'm not sure. Seems like it might be worth it to have a flush king type where you can close the hose off and refill the tank for a second dump. Why not have the tornado or black tank flush running as you dump your tank to create some turbulance in the water that might help stirr the gunk up and dump out easier.

This is my method:
1. Hook up the tank flusher and start it running. The idea is to get everything stirred up.(Yes, you must be careful not to over-fill the tank!)
2. Hook up the dump hose.
3. Open the black dump valve.
4. When the flow slows down close the dump valve.
5. Wait 2 minutes and open it again.
6. Repeat as you feel is needed.
7. Turn off the flusher.
8. When the tank stops draining close the black valve.
9. Open the grey valve.

The Flush King (and all of that type) are a waste of time and money.

Nicely explained Chuck. That's how we do it as well.

I carry the flusk king, not to back flush the black tank but to clear a blockage in the line. It saved me twice when the kids used too much paper and not enough water.

I just use my built in tank flush.. Make sure my tank is At least 3/4 full before I dump. Turn on tank flush, pull black valve. Using clear elbow, watching for 'clear' water.. Close valve leaving tank flush on, go into trailer and watch tank level. When it gets to 2/3 full go back outside and pull valve open.. I do this 3 or 4 times. Never had issues with smells from tanks.
Just don't get sidetracked when the valve is closed and tank flush is on..

Thanks so much. Sounds like the flush king isn't needed until it is. I think for a few more dollars that just the clear elbow I could get the flush king or one of the ones like it and have it for when somethings g needs a little extra push. I do have two young kids that I'm sure will at some point out something in the tank that doesn't belong.

I think the flush king is the only one that will clear a clog unless you piece something else together.
