Unhappy Very new - have ????? Need help!

I am also very new to travel trailer camping. We just bought our first - a 2011 Rockwood Ultra Lite 2608SS towing with a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 5.6 with a hemi (which I was told by several experienced travelers was good). My confusion is with the "black water flush" listed as standard on all of these models. I have read about how this is supposed to work but don't see the connection on the camper that should be marked "black water flush".....any help??? I have only had the camper a little over a month and a 1/2 and have used a honey wagon and dump station to drain, but still not the "black water flush" listed on the paperwork. It also is not in the manual.
??? Thanks for suggestions and advice as it IS a learning process.

Pandoras,
to the forums. Not sure where the tank flush would be located on your rig but you might want to look by the dump valve. Seems like a logical place to put it. Mine is located in the compartment near the fresh water hook up and the dump valve.

Good luck and enjoy your new camper.

Mine is a water connection right below the city water connection.

They are very easy to confuse, so don't get 'em wrong or you will have a real mess on your hands.

Ours is above the tank drain valves and close to the city water connection. I believe it is labeled tank flush.

pandoras, attached is a picture from a 2011 2608SS showing where the blank tank flush connection is (circled in red). However FR has been known to switch things around trailer to trailer (even within the same series) so just to be safe do confirm the connector label says "Blank Tank Flush" or something similar.
