Welcome to the forum !
altho I cant answer your specific question . The black tank flush can be added upon request I'm sure .
Worse case scenario your dealer can install one !
good luck in your hunt !

I installed a Quickie Flush on my black tank and it was so easy and worked so well I installed one on my grey tank too. My Flagstaff dosen't have an enclosed underbelly, if yours does that will add a bit of complexity.

We just got a 2013 3100 from rv direct earlier this month. the black tank flush was included in the safe and sound package. Although the safe and sound package is technically an option it is a no charge option (at least through rv direct). So, at the end of the day, the black tank flush was essentially a standard item.

What is it with the "Standard Option" crap?
No one else does that; just the RV industry.

It is an "option" they charge for; but you can't order a camper without it.
Other "standard options" are things like smoke detectors and the propane detector.

We're just about to take our standard options off. Not sure why everyone else does it that way, ours started off from corporate???? It's kind of like blue laws. At on time there was a reason to do it that way (accounting issue, adding a new tax but calling it something else) then over time we forget why they were charged but forced and then no one bothers to change it.

The Safe & Sound was a package deal that we offered dealers. There is sound logic behind why we do it for dealers (that I won't get in to), but one reason is that we get many units spec'd the way we want them instead of 29 different builds. Many times a dealer is more concerned with hitting a price point and not giving customers what they commonly want.

And here I thought it was because the dealer could advertise a price that you can't actually buy the camper for; then add "options" at full retail that you can't get the camper without; without violating the "Bait and Switch" law.

Silly me.

Well...they could do that too. But it's not why we do it.
