Black tank flush

Here is a little warning. Don't turn on your tank flusher and then get sidetracked. Very messy and smelly. Not only does it flood the bathroom but it also floods the bins under it and the belly pan under the tanks. Other than that it was a good trip.

Easy to get distracted, especially at a site w/camping. Hope the clean-up is successful.
I'll be posting about a brown water close-encounter of my own this weekend.

Yep, I did the same Darn thing in Texas. We were Lucky as we super flushed at the last Campground. Were I screwed up I left the flush valve open when I turned on the water. Marti was sick but, the water was some what clean. We used a lot of towels too. We were OK smell wise.

When I flush out I always leave the dump value OPEN. Of course I'm hooked up to the CG sewer connection. And I have been distracted at times, but not to worry cause it's all going down the drain.

Ya I was hooked to CG sewer when it hapened. The problem was that this was the maiden voyage and the tank valves are labbeled wrong. The tag that says black water is a grey water. I think I'm going to the dealer to have them clean the mess on jayco. I had the gate that said black open.

YES! I'm pretty sure Carlos Santana could build some nice guitar rifts around a song titled... Black Tank Flush

Mine has leaked, twice! First trip out, I saw all this black water running out from under the belly on my new Eagle. Took it in and they found that the leak was from the rinser port. It worked fine for about 10 months. Then when we were in WY at Yellowstone, we noticed a 'smell'. I thought it was from full hookups and/or venting etc. But turns out it was the rinser port leaking AGAIN. Hopefully it is fixed and won't be a problem anymore. FYI it was leaking with no hose hooked up, it was just running out the port from the inside. And since we have the underbelly, you don't know it's leaking right away.
