195RB black tank flush... or not?

First time to try the 2021 195RB black tank flush... doesn't seem to have a hose connection...

... is the connection well hidden, or... nonexistent?

My '17 195RB did not come with black tank flush system. I just open the toilet valve and use a wand to rinse it out.

If yours has a system it should have an inlet near the tank outlet. Could even be under there next to it depending on brand.

Does your build sheet or invoice say you have one??

IMO the black tank flush is a least effective way to clean and flush your tanks. If I was starting over and had or did not have a black flusher, I would purchase one of these:

That way you would have the ability to wash out and flush all three tanks. Lots more versitle than the poor little spray in a black tank sprayer.

^^^ plus the fresh water connection also flushes the hose better than gray water. Tank flush theory is a good quantity of water being released at once helps pull out more solids from the tank floor.

When we had our 195RB Baja I used the RhinoFlex Rhino Blaster for cleaning out the black tank. On the Rhino Blaster the inlet is a straight shot back into the drain pipe and is pretty effective.

We have it and it works great. I typically use it to flush the grey tanks and let the tank flush do the black tanks.

I also use the Rhinoflex Rhino Blaster. Plus the built in wand and also a hand held wand. I’m a little anal ( I can’t believe I said that ) about cleaning the black tank, but my sensors are still accurate.

My 2019 195RB does not have a tank flush. I dump a 5 gallon bucket down the toilet to "flush" it at the dump station and call it a day. So far so good!
