personally i just let the black water fill up and then dump, then i fill the toilet with water a couple of times and dump into the tank while still draining.

as for cleaning the black water tank, with some water in the tank, I just add a bag of ice in the tank before I start driving down the road.

When we had our TT, I installed a "Quickie-Flush" unit and it seemed to work pretty good. The Quickie-flush has stationary spray jets whereas the "Tornado" has spinning spray jets which I would think would be better.

If you have access to the side of your black tank, I would definitely put one of these devices on it. It's a fairly simple installation.

I agree 100%. Installed the Quickie-Flush on my first TT and it worked great.

The Quickie Flush does have good reviews on Amazon, whereas the Tornado had mixed reviews, although I like the rotating head idea.

Any feedback from those here on the Tornado they installed?

X3 on Quickie Flush!! I installed on both grey and black,, Only use the grey one now and then, but sure is nice to be able to do every thing from one spot and not have to go in and out of trailer.

X4 for the Quickie Flush. It really does a good job of getting out what gets left behind just dumping normally.

Quickie flush here to, but I drilled the holes bigger to allow for more flow and it seems to work even better… I am considering adding a second branched off the same hose… the thing is I don’t see a big need for flushing the tank unless its going to be in long term storage or before working on it… never use the Tornado and question the need for the moving parts…

I have the Camco 39062 Dual flush kit. The thing works great and does both black and gray.
I don't like the idea of drilling holes in my tanks.
