I don't think you are missing anything. Since the SS requires a pressurized water source to "power" its jet pump, I always have a grey water hose with me-It's even grey! I never use my freshwater hose for dumping. The SS does incorporate a one-way flow valve, but I prefer a dedicated hose. If the dump station does not have a threaded connection on the rinse hose where I need it, I almost always can use my hose to substitute. In fact, I have never had to use my 4" hose to dump! Other's experience will vary and there are likely to be situations where pressurized water is unavailable, period. In that case, a 4" hose or an electric macerator pump might be required. That is the reason I carry 10' of 4" hose "just in case".
