Vibe 268RKS Black tank cleanout? owner question...

Patiently waiting to pick up my new 2015 Vibe 268 RKS next month. As it is at a dealer 2.5 hr drive from here I cant check this out myself. I was thinking of buying a Camco Tornado 40126 black water tank flushout kit. Question is: Does my 268RKS already come factory with a black water tank flush out? If not, has anyone installed one of these in a 268 yet? With the enclosed underbelly, what kind of work are we talking?

I just got mine and it does not have a flush attachment. Interested to hear the process of installing one though. Seems like a good idea but dropping the under liner sounds dicey.

my comment: why would Forest River exclude adding the Black tank flush as a standard or at very least an option? I came very close to purchasing a Vibe, have had other Forest River units previously and was happy with them, but almost all newer decent trailers & RV's have black flushes on them now. We went back & forth between the Vibe, which we truly liked and a North Trail by Heartland, wound up ordering a NT that narrowly won out (not just because of the tank flush issue) & waiting on it to arrive at dealership now.

Not sure why ANY trailer with a black tank don't come with a flush but if the under belly is enclosed can you emagine how many warrenty jobs they would have. I'm sure that's why they don't do it.

Maybe they could have an access panel like a finished basement would have for the plumbing clean out
