Newbie with a de-winterizing question

Okay...this is probably 1,000th post of this, but we're TT Virgins.

Just picked up our new Rockwood RLT1905 and its fully winterized. In order to " de-winterized it, do I somehow need to flush out the gray and black tanks? I think I get how to flush and sterilize the fresh water system, Maybe!) but not sure if I need to do more than that.

Any help?

No need to flush black and gray tanks.

Don't forget after all the sterilization is done to turn the wh bypass valves .

We have always just sanatized our fresh water system and went on our merry way, all the RV antifreeze will be flushed out the 1st time you empty the tanks.

You don't really need to do anything to the gray and black tanks. You will have some waste in them from dewinterizing but no hurry to empty them.
