The gauges are junk. They rarely work as they should. The black tank rinse valve does an ok job. If you look at where the jets are you will understand why even they are poorly installed in most cases. If you looked at a New Horizons 5th wheel you would see multiple spray heads with two or three at the far end of the tank. Much better but of course more expensive.
The cure is to install a system from See Level and you can even use the present wiring. They attach on the outside and read through the tank wall. They are industrial strength and have been adapted for RV use. Donít waste your time on all the supposed fixes. If yours donít work now they wonít get any better. This has got to been one of the most mentioned problems with RVís. They are constructed cheaply and we need to make improvements so they work properly.
The sad part is that it would probably cost $100 to add this system as standard. The problem is that the trailer without it would be cheaper and since most buy strictly on price theses units wouldnít sell. We get what we pay for.
I have a Nash now but Iím considering ordering a New Horizons 5th wheel and a new F450 with box and hitch. Iím tired of cheap RVís.
