Video Transcript for Camco Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser Review

Today we're going to be taking a look and showing you how to install the Camco Tornado 360 Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser, part number CAM40126. This rinser permanently installs into your RV's holding tank. The 360 degree rotating head has ten high pressure nozzles. These streams help flush out stubborn waste deposits and odor causing particles. The included vacuum breaker helps regulate water pressure and prevent backflow into your water system. It comes with six feet of hose and all the hardware you need to get it installed.

We'll go ahead and show you that now. First thing we'll need to do is locate our black water tank. The outlet is located right here, so we can just follow that. If you haven't already, empty out your black water holding tank. Here, underneath our camper, we'll need to locate a good spot for our Camco Tornado. Now per the instructions, it's recommended that you position it opposite your discharge valve, but this is the only good location we have, so we're going to mount it right here.

It should work just fine, so we can go ahead and take our template and put it in place. We'll need to make sure that the top is pointing up, and we're going to place it in this area here, and then I'm going to tape it in place. Now we can take an 1/8 inch drill bit and you will have to provide your own, and we're going to pre-drill 5 holes. We'll do the 4 surrounding and then the one in the center. Now I'm going to use a hole saw to drill out our 1 3/4 inch hole. Now let's remove our template.

We'll now want to apply some black silicone sealant. If you don't have some, you can pick up some on our website with part number LT37467. First we'll want to apply some into each 1/8 inch hole. We'll also want to add some to the whole inside flange of our Tornado, so this whole area here. Now let's go ahead and put it into our holding tank, just like that. We'll secure it using our hardware.

Now before we operate the Tornado, we're going to want to let that silicone cure for at least 24 hours. We can go ahead and continue on with the install. Now we can grab out hose, and we'll need to find an anchor spot for our bracket so we can easily access it on the outside of our RV. We're going to mount ours here, next to our valve. We know we're going to need about this much length in hose. I'm going to go ahead and cut off the excess. For the end that I won't need, can remove the connection. We'll want to grab our clamp, put in on the hose, and then put our connection back on. With our connection in place, let's go ahead and bring our clamp up into position. We're just going to position it about there and we'll tighten it up. Now we can take it and screw it onto our Tornado. It's time to mount the bracket. We've already gone ahead and chosen the location. Since we're going into the RV's frame, we're going to be using some self-tapping screws. If you need to, you can secure any excess hose underneath with some zip ties. Now we can just come back in 24 hours after our sealant is cured and then check it out. Now it's been about 24 hours and we're going to go ahead and try it out. Now since I'm working with the black water tank, I'm using some disposable gloves. You can pick these up with part number CAM40285. Our black water tank is empty, of course. I've gone ahead and run my hose to the dump station. First thing we want to do is install our vacuum breaker to our water supply. This is going to help ensure proper pressure. We've got the arrow for the direction of flow. We're going to install it like this, and then we're going to attach the vacuum breaker to our Tornado. Then, we can open up our valve and turn on our Tornado. Now we can let the water run for about 2 minutes or until the water runs clear. We've gone ahead and checked for leaks. With everything tight and secure, and the water running clear, our black water tank is now flushed and rinsed. We can go ahead and shut off our water and disconnect. That's going to complete our look at the Camco Tornado 360 Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser, part number CAM40126.

I Purchased This Kit Because Of A Previous Kit That I Installed Before On My Black Tank And It Has Been Good To Me,I Agree That The Quality Has Gone Way Down From No Paint On The Mounting Bracket, To The Lack Of The Tiny Nut And Bolt Holding The Rubber Strap To The Bracket,It Came Off When I Was Installing The Kit,Wont Hold The Cap So It Dosnt Get Lost,Even Going Down The Highway When You Forget To Put It Back On.How Much Money Does That Tiny Little Nut Washer And Tiny Screw Cost?Also The Hose Blew Off From The Fitting That Goes On The Bracket It Should Have Been Crimped Just A Bit More Luckily I Have Knowledge and Expireince With Making Things Work,So Much For That,E-Trailer Was Super To Deal With When Making A Purchase,My Kit Arrived in 3 Days Just As Expected .


Comments

I purchased two of these one for the gray water tank and one for the black water tank. Installation was fairly easy although the installation of the tank probe leaked and required removal and reinstallation with additional sealant. The backflow protectors also leaked on both units when the water turned off. The 6' hose on one unit leaked at the fitting I had to cut it off and recrimp another fitting.

They do work albeit with issues. Undecided whether I would purchase again.

5 Star Rating:
Excellent product and
easy to install for some with a little mechanical knowledge of power tools and small hand tools (i.e. drill, screw driver, cutter, pliers).




by:

All the products I ordered were exceptional and the prices were as good or better than other like items found on the internet. I was most impressed with the communications recieved from Etrailers throughout the order and delivery process. Their product delivery tracking was great also. I will reccomend them to friends and definitely order thru them again. Thanks ETrailer for a job well done.




by:

Works as advertised. Really helps keep tanks clean and no annoying tp pieces caught on the sensors causing the reading to say take base fluid in it!! Love it! Easy to operate and install!




by:

The first time I used it the compassion fitting on the hose failed. You should make both ends use hose clamps.




by:

Ordered many parts for a campervan conversion. Have not opened the box yet but will get into it eventually. Thanks for fast service.




by:

Yes it was delivered and it is exactly what I thought it was and I am looking forward to installing it. I have installed a similar types before in previous RV’s but never had everything I needed together in one package. It beats dragging a hose into the rig and then into the to toilet, too old school.




by:

Thanks for checking on my purchase.
Not
sure if product failed or I didn't install correctly but it doesn't clean the tank good enough. I tried running it for about 10 minutes and the next time we entered our camper it had a odor from our black water tank.




by:

The Tornado was fairly easy to install. My reason for four instead of five stars is the tornado is not, but more like a stiff whirlwind.




by:

The hose was short for my installation but otherwise works Great




by:

This product has really upped my game in getting my black water storage tank clean.




by:

Works great easy to install.I have used it every time I drain my black tank without a problem




by:

Easy to install. Like that I was able to install it on the opposite side of tank from the outlet side.




by:

Arrived in only a couple days and installed just great. Waiting to use it on the next camping trip. Seems like it will be a great addition.




by:

Product arrived in a timely fashion and worked as stated it would. Not exactly a DIY'er project but not too difficult.




by:

product arrived in good time , packaged very well. I think the part will work on my camper. Very pleased.




by:

Great Service, Product Works Great, Could Not Be More Pleased




by:

Had everyting we needed and came very quick. very happy.

Haven't installed yet .

Review from a similar Tornado in RV Black Tank Cleaner


I chose this rinser because it had a brass hose connector. The previous one was plastic, it cracked, causing a leak. I hope this one doesn't have that problem. Installation was pretty straightforward as they exactly the same except for the connection (see photo) . Excellent customer support from etrailer.

Review from a similar Tornado in RV Black Tank Cleaner


I had the one with the plastic female threads which over time got brittle and broke. So in search of another one I came across this one with the steel end like a garden hose. So I bought it. Works great.

  • Install Instructions for the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser w/ 6' Long Hose
    I went out into our warehouse and grabbed a part # CAM40126 to take a couple pics of the install instructions for you to check out. I attached them to this page.

  • What Purpose Does Vacuum Breaker Serve on Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126
    Vacuum breakers are basically backflow preventers so that when you use the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126 there's no worry of it accidentally siphoning your tank water into the hose/water supply which would be absolutely terrible. We can only recommend you install and use this like it was intended so please do not attempt to modify it. I attached a review video for more info on this for you to check out as well.

  • Can The Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser Be Used For A Grey Tank
    Yes, the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126 is a permanent solution for your grey tank. This will install permanently and will be able to rinse out more areas of the tank than traditional rinsing methods. Included is a video review resource.

  • What Water Pressure Does The Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser Require
    That's a good question, I reached out to my contact at Camco and he confirmed that the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126 has a minimum pressure of 20 psi and a maximum pressure of 45 psi. Which is pretty close to what standard house water pressure is (40 to 45 psi). I linked a review video of the Tornado for you to check out.

  • Will Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126 Allow Fluid to Drain Through Rinse Hose
    The Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126 has a built-in back flow preventer designed to prevent the rinse hose from allowing the tank to drain through it. Basically it has a one way valve that allows the hose to have water go only one direction through it. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Where Is Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser Installed On Holding Tank
    Per the installation instructions, the best place to mount the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser, part # CAM40126 is on the opposite end of the flush valve. You can use the template included with the Tornado and measure down about 2 inches from the top and in the middle of the tank. Then tape the template to the tank and drill the mounting holes and center hole for the Tornado to be inserted into the tank, using silicone sealant to make sure there are no leaks.

  • How Does the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser Work
    We don't have a video but the way that the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126 works is a lot like how a yard sprinkler works. It uses water pressure from the hose to spin the nozzle around to cover more of the inside of the tank.

  • Installation Instructions for Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126
    You could perform the installation of the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126 yourself if you wanted or have it professionally installed. The installation instructions are as follows so you can determine if it is something you want to tackle: 1. Empty sewer holding tank. Leave the drain valve open during installation of the unit and while the silicone cures. 2. Locate a central point on sewer holding tank, preferably on the end opposite the discharge valve for mounting...

  • Can Tornado 360-Degree Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40128 Mount On Top of Tank
    Yes, you could install the Tornado 360-Degree holding tank rinser # CAM40126 mounted at the top of the tank if that's the only place it will install. There are no restrictions on it installing there.

  • RV Holding Tank Rinser with 360 Degree Spray
    The Quickie Flush RV holding tank rinser # CAM40123 provides a straight stream and does not spin. For one that does provide a 360 degree spray I recommend # CAM40126.

  • Is the Flush King Reverse Flush Valve Good to Use for a Black Water Line with Two 90 Degree Elbows
    Since you have two 90 degree elbows in your black water line I recommend using the Camco Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126 because it will be much more effective at cleaning your holding tank than the Flush King Reverse Flush Valve # F02-4350. The Tornado installs in the side of your tank and has a 360-Degree rotating head with 10 high-pressure nozzles which reaches every area of your holding tank. This also comes with a 6' long hose to give you easy access and a built-in...

  • Can the Tornado Tank Rinser be Installed on the Bottom of the Tank
    I have an option but per the instructions the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser w/ 6' Long Hose part # CAM40126 should be done on the side of the tank opposite of the flush valve if possible. The location can vary from that two inches from the top of the tank but the bottom is going to cause both leakage and ground clearance issues potentially. There is a back flow preventer but handling that type of use isn't what it was designed for. If the bottom were the only choice switching...

  • Flushing the Gray Water Tank on an RV
    What I recommend to flush your gray water tank is the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126. Install this into the tank, connect a hose, and flush out the tank! I have included a link to a video review of this product for you.

  • Can Holding tanks be Rinsed Using Lippert Sewer Hose
    It sounds like you need something like the dual Flush Pro # CAM39062 for rinsing out holding tanks and the sewer hose. But these adapter uses bayonet fittings and hose # LC359724 uses cam-lock fittings. But if you used sewer hose # CAM39761 then with # CAM39062 you would be good to go. Or you might be interested in a more permanent solution such as the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126. This will install permanently and will be able to rinse out more areas of the tank...

  • How to Achieve Optimum Pressure for Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser
    For your situation you'll want to use the Valterra Adjustable Water Regulator # A01-1117VP to ensure you get the optimum pressure rating for the Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser # CAM40126 when using it in conjunction with a macerator pump. There is a way to mathematically convert GPM to PSI using Bernoulli's Principle but from what I can tell you have to have a pretty controlled environment for that. The Valterra Regulator will help you to get the PSI correct every time you use...

  • Sprayer for black water tank
    The Flusher Sprayer part # 372571-SprayerA that you mentioned does not rotate. it has a fixed head designed to spray water jets in multiple directions to dislodge any remaining stuff that may be in the tank. The Camco Tornado 360-Degree RV Holding Tank Rinser part # CAM40126 is designed to install in a similar fashion but as you can see in the video below it has a standard hose type fitting on it and includes all of the necessary hardware and bracket to get it installed in such a way...
