Just read through this thread, interesting stuff… sort of. Anticipating a new TT complete with bathroom in the near future I came across this 15 minute video that I thought was the most informative and educational of any I have seen and thought I should share the link.

Hope you find it as helpful as I did.

That video shows how some large RV have a built in black tank rinse that you will not have in an Escape.

Think they changed to 19 in 2012 maybe but could be 2013.

I would imagine that ETI will install a Tornado tank flusher either post build or during the build if you supplied it and were willing to pay for the mod. We plan to just install one ourselves if we ever feel it's needed. The type that Jon mentions he installed in his 17 costs less than $50.

I don't think Reace will install one - I've been told he is uncomfortable with the hose type fittings at the tank end.

Not too tough a project for the 17, other than taking a drill saw to the shell!
