Black Tank Flush ??

I own a 2014 Jayco Whitehawk Summit 33BHBS , and it is equiped with a black tank flush hookup , My question is , when using this , do I need to use a water pressure regulator to keep from damage to water line or do I just hook water line straight to the hook up ???

That's a good question, and I don't know the answer. But I'll guess that it doesn't make much difference either way. Maybe a little more flow without. I have mine connected when I flush and it seems to work fine. I'm sure we'll get some informed opinions tho.

We had this discussion recently in another thread. Mixed reviews. Me personally, I have always used a regulator (separate from my fresh water regulator) just to make sure I am not introducing too much pressure into the RV water lines. JMHO

If it is a seperate connection you don't need a regulator since it is an open line. The more pressure the more cleaning it will do.

Though it's a separate connection, like red horse and d&m, I also use a regulator (separate from my fresh water). It may not be necessary, but I'd rather be safe than sorry and the tank still seems to clean very well

I have a 2014 Seneca, with a tankless water heater. Will a pressure regulator allow enough flow for it to work?
