I prefer the one that mounts in the tank. I like being able to do everything from out side the RV.

It depends on your tanks. Doing it from the out side is nice. But My tanks have a step in them and the only way to clean them out is with the Wand. I use the Swivel Stick. It cleans them spotless. I also have the outside mount on mine but it just does not do the job needed on my tanks.

if you have access to the side or one end of the tank or if you down shot from the toilet is curved, then I would go with the quickie flush attached to the tank. the hose with the wand is so ineffective and you will not or can not get the tank as clean as the quickie flush

For eze of use, the outside one cant be beat, quick and simple.
I usually keep a wye on my water hook up and a spare hose dedicated to the black tank clean out.
On the end of the hose and black tank connection I installed a quick connect.
snap it on and snap it off.

I wish black tanks had a "window" to see if they are clean. Best case is a clear drain connect like on a back flush to monitor for clear water.

Ron, I like your idea..
my down shot from toilet is straight down into the tank no curve..
my tank is flat with no step.. I would think the outside flush would work better..
I have Camping World installing a HD dish next week so i will add that to my list..

I didn't like dragging a hose through our rig to use the toilet wand..much easier and cleaner with an installed tank flush with an outside hose attachment.

Much prefer the tank built in. On our first trailer hubby hauled the hose thru' the bathroom window to clean the tank. The plastic connector on the wand broke and the hose snaked all over! What a mess, but 12 years later we can laugh about it.

We installed Quickie Flush. Works great. Another item would be Tornado Permanent Tank Rinser
