Vegas Black Tank flush

I have a 2018 Vegas 25.2. According the the brochure there's a Black Tank flush on it, called Thor and the rep seemed to think there was one also.


Looked in every outside hole, pocket and door I could find and found nothing.



Any other Vegas owners found this missing item?

No black tank flush

There isn't one on our 2018 Vegas 24.1 either. We knew it was missing from the one we decided to purchase. We're having one installed next time we head back to our dealer. We thought there would be one also since some of the videos and literature mentioned it while we were doing our pre buying research. Thor did some mid year changes on the 2018. So I think at the same time they started installing the crappier refrigerator, they quit installing the black tank flush.

My 2017 didnt have it as an option but I just installed one - very easy to install at home.

Look around your black tank for a garden hose fitting - Maybe its hidden? You can see mine if you stick your head inside the rear fenderwell and look forward. I installed the hose extention - that way I open the door covering the black tank and it right there within easy reach.

Our 2014 didn't have it as an option. I just had the dealer add one at time of purchase.

We Installed a TORNADO in our 2016 25.2 VEGAS.

Was extremely easy. Only issue was my nerves over drilling a hole in my brand new black tank.

Am extremely glad we installed it. Between our FLOJET pump and the TORNADO, the job ikeeping the tanks empty and clean is quick and trouble free..

What does the FLOJET pump do for you?

Our '18 Axis 25.4 didn't have one. Had it installed, love it. Ours is a Tornado.

It let's us pump to our septic tank at home over 100 feet and up hill. Saves having to go to a dump station after a long weekend trip.

Also let's us pump into a dump site that might not be "downhill" from our VEGAS low black tank.

It is also extremely sanitary and "fraquence" free. It also let's us take our time using the TORNADO to make sure the black tank is "clean"

Just curious how expensive and time consuming for your dealer to install a black flush

Welcome to the site. Which coach do you have? Axis/Vegas? It matters because the answer to your question is different depending on the coach.

For example: It took our dealer all of about 15 minutes to install the black tank flush on our Axis 24.1.

Yeah I installed one on my 2017 Axis.... I spent about 45 minutes to install it.... But I also attached the remote waterhose fitting.... which make it easier to attach water hose but not really needed.

Same process to install on every RV. Drill a hole and install with sealant.
