Black tank rinse install

I'm having a black tank rinse system installed on my Jayco Swift 15rbh trailer. Do I still have to worry about keeping it closed and only empty it when 3/4 full or could I possibly now keep the black tank opened when camping at full hook up sites? What are the advantages now?

Thanks

Still need to keep it closed. The advantage is that when you dump, the tank rinse gets more of the "stuff" out of the tank. But it doesn't change the fact that you still need plenty of liquid built up to get the initial flush.

Also, when operating the black tank "flusher" make sure the black tank dump valve is "opened".

Leave your black tank valve open ONLY if you like giving your money to RV service shops..

When you leave the valve open there is no water sitting in the bottom of the tank....and then you start building a poop mountain. The outlet is on the edge of the tank and there is no way it will wash over to that hole. You will end up with toxic concrete mix in the bottom of your tank. Best way is top off tank once a week then pull the lever. Most will wash out then, then back flush. After finished close up valve, add some chem and water...repeat weekly.

The more liquid there is in the tank the better.

I think since they only have a 9 gallon tank they were hoping to avoid dumping so often. But as has been said keep it closed and lots of water.

OK I was thinking of putting one of these on my 154BH. Where is the best place to install? I was thinking the end opposite the valve but I'm sure. Any suggestions?

I'm having the dealer I bought my TT from do the install. I should get it back by Friday. When finished I will take some photos and post it in this thread so you can see. I will put several photos so you can get a good look from every angle. Good luck!
