I have watched a few videos on it and these are the steps I have gathered but want to make sure I have the steps right.

Hook up the hose
Place hose in hole with weight of some sort on top
Open the Black tank
Then rinse through the toilet (I assume with flushing the toilet?)
Then close it again and fill the tank half way
Repeat till running clear
Close Black
Open Gray
Rinse hose
Put hose away

Is that about right? Any tips or tricks?

Thanks!
Check out this video test of black water tank flushing devices, it's pretty interesting!
Testing Tank Flushing Systems in the Clear RV Black Tank!

The videos they do (the fitrv.com) are entertaining and informative especially if you're new to RVing like me.

Good luck!

do you have a OEM black tank flush ? IF SO ,run the flush while dumping, when it runs clear close the dump valve for 5min. and open again, this will run out any thing left in the tank

Your worst enemy in the black tank is paper. I always make sure that there is enough water in the tank so that the paper will go in and become wet. Although it isn't very user friendly, the RV paper will begin to break down as soon as it gets we t and is the only paper that should go into the tank.

Testing shows that several other brands including Scotts equal the dissolve rate of RV paper.

You will soon find out that the BEST RV Store is Amazon and that it is well worth the $100/year to join Amazon prime (you then have a music/movie service in addition to 2 day shipping -- and YES they will ship to a CG!)

Honestly, as long as you flush well, use whatever paper feels best on your bum! We use Scott 2 ply and have ZERO problems. (We also use a BlueStreak and RV Digestit)
