There is this nice stick thing that you get from walmart hook it up to a hose and stick it down the tank and it will spray around the tank moving your poo particles and toilet paper to the drain. It only cost me less than $10 as nice needed addition to cleaning the tank easier.

Be careful using any type of snake because you don't want to damage the tank fill sensor.

Having neve seen the tornado-rotary-tank-rinser in use before I am guessing you just remove the drain cap and insert this whole assy up into your BLACK or GRAY water tanks but I am confused how you hook up the drain hose with this inserted. Maybe it is suppose to be inserted after you put the drain hose on but I am not understanding how it is installed and can used in conjunction with the drain hose...

Seems like i will get a big mess if I just insert it up the hose and then turn some water on. Maybe it is suppose to go down the pot??? All i have seen is the picture on WALMART page

You actually cut a hole in your black tank and insert it into the wall of the tank. It spins around washing out the tank and the water comes out the normal drain. Actually very clean operation, but you would be surprised at what comes out of that tank when you run it!

Roy,

Adding to Terry's comments, the following link is a good reference if you decide to install a black tank rinse product: http://users.xplornet.com/~burnetta/...s/Tornado.html

Thanks Bob and Terry _ I certainly didn't read that part - hehe I usually read just what I want to read I guess... The rotating part on the inside of the tank I guess doesnt move in anywhere. Just rotates on the side of the wall I guess and squirts high pressure water... I 'll do some looking into this... Sounds like a neat thing...

I can think of a couple of good reason to have an access hole. Just think what you could do with a high pressure hose cutting down the POO building up...

Tank rinser

I had one of these installed right after I bought the unit 5 years ago. I would not be without it. I use a Y with a shutoff valve and check valve right where the connection is on side of trailer. I rinse the tank EVERY time I empty it and have had little or no trouble with black water tank sensors since. The unit is relatively inexpensive and if you are at all handy you could install it yourself. Otherwise it will probably cost a couple of hundred for dealer to do because it takes them two or three hours as the underside of trailer has to be removed below tanks.

Also you might like to try the trick I mentioned with Calgon water softener to help clean out your tank.
