You really should watch the videos posted on "The Fit RV" (see link in my first post) before running out and buying the Sewer Solution. Especially the second one. If you have any kind of elbow in your dump line, it appears that it will be no better than normal dumping.

DAG NABBIT!! Now I'm hooked watching those videos! I just got done watching the toilet paper test, absolute classic! That kid is hilarious.

Anyway, the Sewer Solution video actually kind of sold me on it. It would be used primarily at my house to dump my tanks if needed. Like if someone was staying in it for a night or two, or if I made it home without being able to dump. I could run the Sewer Solution to my septic tank at home, dump my tanks, use the SS to flush them, and use my black tank rinse too. So it would work well for me in that situation, and I could still use it on the road as well.

So I went back and watched the second video. I still think the SS will work in my case because I would use it in conjunction with my built-in tank rinse.

Either way, those were some eye opening videos, and I'm glad I watched them! Thanks!

I watched the entire video (the second one). The Sewer Solution's purpose is not to rinse out the black tank so you should not buy one if that is the goal. It is rather a water-driven macerator to be used in lieu of the so called, "stinky slinky". I have had one for 3 years now and use it all the time and very happy with the way it works. The back flush operation on the SS will only clean out the end section of the black/gray tank pipe. I like it because it's cleaner than the "slinky", it pumps uphill and I don't need to use the hose supports so that the "stuff" flows downhill. It does take a bit longer to empty the tanks but not that much longer however, I do not use it while dumping at a community-type dump station.

Sounds like us… we actually carry about 125' of white hose… have used it all more than once in the state campgrounds, if we decide to stay a bit longer than the standard 3-day weekend. Also, when the "freshwater fill line" is long, have used that hose to fill after we have parked, unhooked. And, yes, that "black hose", in our case… short one for flushing the black tank on the way out, if the dump line is not too long! Try to flush at least every other time, when camping… and, take the opportunity to flush every time when on a sewer connection, generally during the longer term stays, or when traveling.

Wow! Should have been using the factory wash out since day one. Good thing it is only my second year with the camper. It really works good. All though it leaked right at the black tank inlet . didn't want to crawl under the trailer at the dump station. Looks like it is just a graden screw hose fitting I'll have to tighten.

Can you snap a picture of it?

I notice you have a '11 X23B. I have a '13 X23B and was wondering if I have one........

Sure. I'll take a pic tomorrow. Mine is located near the back of the trailer on the side with the dump valves just before the rear bumper up tight to the fiberglass body.

Should the flush line be blown out when winterizing? Or does it drain completely?
