On my 2014 30DS there is an outside outlet in the third bin back on the passenger side. I've read they have increased the them on newer models. The propane tanks do not have ad on ports for accessories but an aftermarket valve can be added later.

How is everyone dealing with the black tank not having a rinse out ?
The current way of just flushing the toilet is not the best solution

45 degree hydro flush works great. Check them out at Camping World or pretty much anyplace that sells RV accessories.

Thanks Drivmsafe! One question though. Even when the angle is almost ninety degrees? My 25ds has this almost vertical angle and I didn't think the water jet would even reach.

It works as a back flush. After emptying your black tank, with the hydro flush already attached, you hook up a hose (you'll want to use what I call a dirty hose) to the hydro flush and you'll be amazed how it works. I've had times where TP and stuff comes out that doesn't come out with the first dump.

I added an aftermarket hydro flush with back flow preventer soon after I got my 30ds. It works great. Used black silicone sealer to install it with the provided screws. I cringed when I used the hole saw drill attachment and cut the hole into the black tank. When I went to pull the hole cutter out of the hole it came out of the drill chuck and almost fell in! After about five minutes I got it out.

I think I read here that the 2015s now come with one. New buyers are getting so many free DS ons that I didn't get I'm jealous!

Thou I did look at one with a build date of 10/27 and it had the two tone interior!
Our Jan 2015 30DS is one of the newer ones... In addition to above, our LR TV cabinet opens L to R vs. up like a storage cabinet. Allows the flipped around driver seat to see the TV as well as from the couch position.

Is anyone attempting to either lock the front grill or install a lock on the starter battery? 2015 25DS
