I was a bit shocked that Winnebago left a black tank sprayer off, to me these should be standard options by now. I've installed a No-Fuss Flush on my Outback before, so I have some idea how to. But I thought I would see if anyone had any specific advice before I tackle this project on our Sightseer. It appears the black tank is at the rear of the coach, above and to the right in the QuickPort area. I don't know how far down on the right side of the tank I can go to get a flush valve installed, but I'm guessing 12" to 18" - is that going to be enough or do I need to try and go down further? Thoughts or advice is more then welcomed.

Y Guy, looking at your tank plumbing diagrams on the Winnie site, I would opt to install the flush wand somewhere near the soil vent stack, about where the tank has a slanted floor and goes toward the toilet. I'm figuring, if there's anyplace in the tank that a flush would help, it would be near the toilet drop to rinse it toward the 3" drain...
