Hi guys, has anyone used the camco RV flexible swivel stick to clean out your holding tank? Just wondering if it’s worth 30 bucks or a gimmick. Thanks!

I have one and used it all the time, on my previous trailer. It didn't have a black tank flush. It worked well and I still have it.
Amazon has it for less than $25 with free shipping.

Just run the water hose in the bathroom window with an adjustable nozzle on it. Open the black tank valve drain the tank and then stick the hose down the toilet, not all the way and blast the tank out with the hose stream. Do this occasionally or if you notice excessive odor.

With plenty of water in the tanks when dumping clean outs are rarely needed IMO. Occasionally I dump, refill with clean water, drive 10 miles and dump a second time.

The Swivel Stick with the spinner nozzles on the end.. One of the more effective wands... The Valterra Master Blaster properly used is the most effective wand HOWEVER... The design concerns me (I full expect the nozzle to snap off) I built my own variation on the Valterra design that worked fairly well.
