I have the same flush for the black water tank as you do and i also have that little sticker that says keep valves open. I don't keep them open. I run some water in there so that the water level rises and cleans the tank pretty good. I have a clear piece that goes on right before the flex hose so I can see when the water coming out of the black tank is clean. Then I just call it a day.
Hope it helps. Just don't leave that valve closed and over fill your black tank.

Well they are a dealer but I got a really good deal on it and they delivered it from 300 miles away for free! The guy was supposed to go over it with me but he was in a hurry and dropped it and ran. It's OK, I have google! lol I'm a quick learner and not totally clueless to RV's. I like to find out as much info as I can however before I use stuff just to be sure.

To sanitize... Add 1/4 Cup of clear Bleach to the potable water tank(if 30 gal). Fill all lines. Run all faucets to get the mix into the lines. Let stand for about 1/2 to 1 hour. Then drain and flush with fresh water. Usually several times.
We also use the Geo method for tank control. Look it up. It really works.

Yeah I like the Geo method! Even bookmarked the site! It does state that on new rigs that the Geo method shouldn't apply except for the potable water situation.
