I understand the concerns with cross contamination...but unless you always have a non-potable water source to connect the black tank flush to isn't the question more about which potable water system may get contaminated?

If you connect the blank tank flush hose to your home water supply or some other potable source of water the chance for cross contamination still exists...perhaps just a little further away from the RV. Correct?

I always use a back flow preventer on the black tank flush line...but figure if it fails then the potable water source may become contaminated...whether that source be from my RV or some other external supply source.

So, if I'm a good guy and use a back flow prevention device, then I keep everything safe including the water source. What about the guy before me or the guy before him and so on. If they don't use any thing, how would I know if they something that they did or did not do contaminated the source? Things like this are out of our control and you have to rely on the builders of the coaches that they have devices installed that prevent the back flow from occurring.

That is why I do not like to fill the fresh water tank at the same hose bib they use to flush the waste tanks. But sometimes it can not be avoided. In the past I have seen people stick the hose up the drain pipe, when flushing their tanks. In Washington the DOT dump sites have a separate Potable water bib, and a sign at the dump site NOT FOR POTABLE WATER.

Open and flush spigot. Spray with bleach solution and allow to sit while you're hooking up electrical. When ready to hook up hose, open spigot and rinse, then connect hose. If there were some gift left from the previous person, odds are you killed it.

Your BT vent may be partially obstructed. The need to know why should be on the top of yer to-do list.
