Well, it's not the vacuum breaker check valve - I checked it today and it lets water flow. So the nozzle is stopped up and I need to remove it and unstop it. Does anyone know what kind of holding tank rinsing system Jayco uses (Camco Tornado?) and what kind of sealant is used to attach it to the black tank?

Well.. its Jayco PN 0179744 SPRAYER,TANK 3 PIECE WITH WATER INLET/VACUUM BREAKER/ AND TANK SPRAYER.

Runs about $55 at a dealer. As for brand, I am not sure, the Jayco parts site does not give me a description. Looks like the sprayer itself is just a glue on of some sort.

Sub parts are:
0200179 SPRAYER,TANK HOLDING GLUE-IN
0218280 INLET,WATER SPRAYER TANK WHITE (BRASS)
0502149 DECAL,"CAUTION SEWER TANK FLUSHER SEWER VALVES MUST BE OPEN WHEN USING THIS INLET"
0502647 BREAKER,VACUUM/CHECK VALVE SPRAYER TANK

I can call it in, but the Camco may be the closest one. Let me know if you need me to give Jayco a yell.

John

Here is a thought.. hook up a compresses air supply to the black tank rinser.. and then starting at the normal city water pressure start increasing the pressure till you blow the blockage out of the spray head of the rinser..

Heh, thanks, and no problem. Its kinda what I get paid for. I look at it as I am helping others, outside my store, a Jayco owner is still a Jayco owner, and deserves the best service, no matter from who.

If you do use an air compressor, I would be cautious as to how high you set the compressors air supply pressure. I would hate to see someone blow the aerator end off inside the tank or worse yet, have the aerator explode into pieces. Either way it would be a mess...

For those of us that have had these systems for a few years and need to clean them, I wonder if pouring Lime A-Way down the opening may help remove any lime or other mineral deposits inside the aerator. I know that most of it would just pass through, but it may work, or may remove the crud in bigger pieces and block the openings?? What to do??
Just my thoughts

Before you try the air pressure or the Lime Away, I'd try pouring some white vinegar into the outlet. It will do the same thing as the Lime Away, but won't harm your siding if you should get any on it. Let it set in the line for 30-45 minutes, then try the water hose. In my old trailer, I use to get calcium build-up in the galley faucet so bad that It wouldn't let any water flow out. Of course, on the faucet, I could just remove the aerator. The white vinegar should dissolve the lime in the spray head.

On the other hand, you don't suppose it's just got an ice plug in it? It has been pretty cold lately. Just a thought.

I used the part numbers I got from JohnLLRV. The parts guy at my Jayco dealer had the Jayco black tank washer system in stock. The system is from bandbmolders.com; here's a link to a PDF from their site which has the black tank washer pictured in it. They also have a lot of other RV plastic parts, but I don't think they sell to consumers.

I really believe that the spray head is stopped up with "material" from within our black tank. We're taking a short trip soon, and my hope is that the sloshing of fluid in the tank will soften up the stoppage enough that the sprayhead will work again. Failing that, when we get home I'll make a hole in the coroplast bottom and take the sprayhead out and clean it. I did learn from the dealer that they use silicone sealant when installing a black tank washer.

For the present, I'm going to avoid using air pressure and cleaners of various sorts. Our water pressure at the house is about 60 pounds, and I wouldn't want to go above that to test out my pex plumbing. And, if my theory is correct about what is stopping up the spray head, I don't thing vinegar or Lime Away would do much good.

I'll post again when my black tank washer saga has another chapter.
