    Black tank emptying and slide sticking.

    I have a 2020 2500RL Imagine and the slide is out of sync. I have tried re-syncing/timing, back and forth 8 or so inches in and out both in and extended. This does not seem to solve anything. The bath room side still has to catch up about 3 inches after the theater seat side completes upon retract. Now, sometimes the bathroom side stops after after starting to retract after about 5 inches in, to get it going again I extend all the way then try again. Is there another reset? Thoughts?

    With the black tank, when you attach the input water to flush the black tank from the side plug, does it just fill or does it spray as if to "clean the walls of the tank?

    On another note, I noticed the black tank not completely emptying. Granted I was not on completely level ground so I am assuming this might have been the cause. Anyone know if the tank has a low center point drain or if its flat and needs a truly level surface when draining?

    Many thanks for any help.

    How do you know the black tank isn't emptying completely?

    No problem, just was curious if you were going by the gauges, as they are notoriously inaccurate. The tank exits should be the low point of the tank.
    It would depend on how unlevel you were.

    Is the slide a Schwintek?

    Most of the black tank rinse are a spray.

    #1 Thats what I thought but imagine my surprise when my tank ran clear as I flushed it, yet when I looked down in to confirm there was still waste. That was a real head scratcher. I hope it was just un level enough to cause this because I would have absolutely no other explanation.

    #2 Yes a Schwintek

    #3 If it is a spray that makes it even more head scratching given the spray would likely hit most of the tank clearing the un level side still holding waste.

    Are you leaving the valve closed on the black tank until you drain it? How out of level were you?

    Are both of the slides Schwintek?

    I agree, I close the black tank valve and fill it up about a quarter with the rinse-out connection, then I dump the tank. I repeat this procedure until the tank runs clear.

    #1 As I flushed with fresh water, the black tank knife valve was open as I watched it run clear. When "empty" it was not completely empty upon inspection looking down in.

    How level was I? It appeared "slightly" out may 3-4 degrees or so. But certainly if there were a center low point drain, the amount of level I was out should not seem to be an issue. I hope I'm wrong.
    I should find a level dump before I get to crazy.

    I have 1 slide out. I assume both side of the slide are the same. Sorry for any confusion.

    In other words you really need to fill it to get a good flush?
