Many campgrounds have a hose with the end cut off. Get yourself a short section of hose and put a proper threaded end on it for flushing the tank. You'll be glad you did.

Our "Royal" flush consists of - 5 gallons of water poured quickly down the toilet, with the black tank value open.

I do use a water pressure regulator on the black tank flush.
Primary reason is better safe then sorry.
On our unit the black tank flush hose is located in the underbelly so it's not easily accessible and looks to be the same stuff they use for the water system.
There's no decals indicating different water pressure limits on the black flush, so I'm guessing it has the same limitations as the rest of the water system.

On our previous trailer I blew the relief valve on the black flush due to too high water pressure at the campground and the valve was located inside a wall, what a mess.

That's just what I do, for whatever it's worth.

Here are the directions for using the black water flush from the manual. Notice in step #4 is specifies a minimum amount of pressure, but no maximum. In the fresh water section, it actually has a big warning that says you should always use a pressure regulator on the city water connection. No such warning exists for the black water flush.

SECTION 8-PLUMBING SYSTEMS
1. Connect the flexible sewer hose to the 4 inch
dump outlet.
2. Open the black water dump valve and leave it open.
Allow the tank to drain.
3. Attach a water hose to the Tank Flush Inlet. Do not
use your fresh water hose for this.
4. Attach the other end of the water hose to a
pressurized water source. (40 PSI minimum)
5. Turn ON the water source flushing the tank until
water appears to run clear in the sewer hose.
6. Turn water source OFF. Disconnect water hose from the source.
7. Disconnect water hose from the Tank Flush Inlet.
8. Close the black water dump valve.

Found this out on a trip in July - meaning no flush for the black tank that time. I plan on getting another hose to keep along just for that purpose.
