No black tank flush in 2015 23 MBH White Hawk

Greetings all! After months of shopping and researching our first TT, we finally settled on the 23 MBH. After looking at so many models that had a black tank flush, I assumed that they all did. Our 2015 23 MBH White Hawk does not. Any guesses as to why it was not included on a non base model unit? I wouldn't think it would take up much space, add weight, or increase cost significantly. I'm new to this and may be missing something.

Not sure why they didn't include it....however it could be your first of many mods.

You could look on the spec sheet that came with uour new rig to see ifit was supposed to be on it. It is not a mod and even if you don't want to tackle it you can get a back flusher that attaches to the sewer drain that will facilitate back flushing all the tanks, or a wand that goes down the toiler from above.

Cheer up, it is not a biggie.

Oh, no worries here. This trailer is absolutely fantastic. We were on the fence about the 2014 but as soon as we walked into the 2015 we knew our search was over. I was open to the possibility that there might be a good reason to not include one. I've been crawling through it some more today and decided it was a space issue since the drain is on the bottom of the trailer and not in a bay.

Just brought ours a couple of weeks ago. Noticed the same thing, but it's no biggie for us. We just towed ours from NC to Texas. Love it so far. On a different note, I think you will be greatly pleased with how well the Murphy bed sleeps.

We have a 2014 model (only 3 month old so it must be at the end of the model year) and when I was looking in thought that to so we ended up buying a clear adapter with a a hose connection that would send water back into the tank to help flush it out. Also even though it seems water wasteful I read t o fill your black tank as much as possible before dumping. We did that and dumping was easy and at the end of the process the water was running clean so I figured we did ok. I thought about adding a black flush tank but my trailer has the enclosed underbelly so I would not know where to begin.

On a different note the Murphy bed sleeps well. We did find that we had to buy a ladder for our little one to climb up into the bunk (yes I know that was off topic sorry)

The 23MBH is one that we are considering. How much of a chore is it to go from sofa to bed and back again? Do you ever wish you had gotten a TT with separate sofa and bed? Do you have adequate storage? I had heard that storage was lacking. Just curious to know more about the 23MBH from people who own one.

The sofa to bed conversion is really easy. First lay back the sofa then pull down the bed from the wall. No real effort required. Storage is going to be tight. There is some bonus room under the couch for bulky bedding storage that should he considered. The bunks make great storage areas when unused as well.

Changing from bed to sofa and back is no chore at all....less than 2 minutes from couch to bed, or back. As for storage, there are only my wife, myself and 2 ****zhu dogs. We are full timers (sort of). My wife is a travel nurse. We find the storage quite adequate. We use the bunks for storage. The 23 is easily managable, on the road, and parking in campgrounds. We have a friend who full times in a 28 footer. Wehave more room than she does because we don't lose floor space to a bed...we just fold it up.

I agree to the ease of the bed. Initially thought the storage was going to be tight as well but we moved up from a PUP so we were used to packing light and small. We are also not full timing so we don't have RP pack everything. I do agree about the pulling ease and other comments. My wife made a good choice
