Black tank flushers

Has anyone installed one of those "tornado" black tank flushers???? if so... are they worth the effort? or should i continue to use the pole type you stick in the toilet. I also on occasion use the clear fitting with the hose attachment.... any thoughts????

How is that 6.4 turbo diesel running for you? I might be looking for a bigger tv but I'm hearing stay away from those Ford engines.

I put a tornado flush on my old Terry & it worked good the first year then the head stuck & wouldn't spin. I haven't installed a washer on the Jayco yet & have no idea what to buy.

I have had them on my last 2 Jayco's and wouldn't be without one. I use a clear elbow between the connection on the RV and the "stinky slinky" - I drain and flush until it is clear, then turn off the flusher and close the valve. The sensors stay clear and all is well

They work great for me.

Thanks for the info. Looking for one in brass etc. Seems like plastic ones don't last long.

Mine was in place for 3 years in my first RV (when I sold it it was still running strong). My current one has been in place for 2 years and is doing great. Both were Tornados.

Anyone know how much trouble it is to remove the insulation from underneath the trailer (if you have an enclosed underbelly) so that you could install one of these?
