Where does that hose hook to? More than likely the water system that supplies the entire campground or you private well at home or a municipal supply. Now there's a sudden drop in water pressure say a main break that creates a negative pressure that sucks your black water back into the supply unknowingly you just contaminated the entire system your hooked to. That's why the vacuum breaker is there. Now you may say well what are the chances of that happening? I say do you want to be the one in a whatever the number may be. The chief principal in plumbing is protecting the states waters. Goes all the way back to London code and the black plague.

The only time I hook up to the wash out connection is when I go to dump at dump station or right before leaving the park with FHU and cleaning out black tank. No reason to hook to it before then IMHO.
