No...never do this or you will end up with the dreaded "Pyramid of Poo"
I also disagree with leaving your grey tank open (the gray tank is a great "flush" for your hose after you dump your black tank.
If you have not done so already, get a high quality sewer hose - either a Rhinoflex or Wastemaster.
As far as maintaining your black tank just get this - it is the best thing you can do for your black tank

X2 on the black tank rinse. Most (if not all) modern RVs have a black tank rinse system. After *every* black tank dump I will run our turbo rinse for 20-30 min to make sure everything is cleaned out. Remember these are holding tanks, not septic tanks and routine maintenance is the cost of doing RV business
