Also very important if you can let the black tank sit for as long as you can before you dump . We find the Oderless liquidifies everything there isn't any solids left . Pat

The only time I've ever used the wand on my black tank is when I am in a full service campsite. I run the hose in the rear driver-side window or under the trailer. I can take as much time as I need.
I cover the toilet with a piece of Saran Wrap with an x cut in the middle for the wand, and put the toilet seat down to hold it in place.

Black tank sprayer

This is an older thread where last year I asked if anyone had installed a black tank sprayer. I was surprised that there were no answers, since quite a number of black tank sprayers have been installed in Casitas.

I am considering installing one in my 21. I think it shouldn't be too hard since the black tank is fairly accessible.

If anyone has installed a black tank sprayer, please post what type you installed, where on the tank you installed it and how satisfied you are with the results.

I just use a wand from time to time. How "clean" does it need to be?

That's why we have an opening bathroom window. Hose in, rinse, done.

I've used my wand once since the last time this topic came up.

Not found any need for anything beyond an occasional rinse with hose.

The only one I’m aware of who added one was Jon V. on his 17B. He used the Tornado sprayer on the black. You can see it here under “New Modifications for 2013”:
