Black tank back flush

Anyone know if the 2018 Wildwood 263 has a back flush for the black tank? Manual doesn’t say but there is a sticker above the server connections that says “black tank flush”. All I see if the lever to release the black tank. I want to flush the tank with fresh water.Click image for larger version

I have the 300bh and my black tank flush is on the opposite side of the trailer from the valves. It is right under where my outdoor tv mounts. Don't know if this will help you or not.

I’ve looked on the other side and I don’t have anything there. Thanks though.

Grapelape.....
I'm sorry I do not know your rig.... But with that much sticker information posted it is quite likely that there is a black tank flush inlet on your rig.

Look for a hose connection marked 'tank flush'.... you may have a 'city water connection' ...sometimes they are close to that. (they look alike)

If there is no connection perhaps the posted information is just warning the owner if they use a "back flush connection" at the sewer termination valve.

This also could back fill the tank, if there was a valve closed down stream, and possibly cause some problems if it was not watched closely.

A back flush fitting is an attachment to the sewer outlet, usually an elbow, that has a hose attachment fitted with an anti-backflow valve.

Hope this helps

I don’t have anything like that next to the city water inlet. I suppose I can always hold the toilet flush down for 10 minutes or so and let it flush right out the sewer hose.

I'll bet that flush fitting is hidden well under the trailer in the area below the sticker and you may have to look extra hard to find it. Get on your back with a flashlight. If you find it under there you may want to put a hose extension on it so it is easier to get to when you need it.

if you find that it was not installed, you can install an aftermarket flush unit called "Quickie Flush", ... works very well and is easy to install, ... just put it on the opposite side from the black tank drain, FR installs their flush units just above the drain hole, ... you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand how that is counter productive, ... I'm sure its cheaper to put it there than to run over to the other side of the tank, and they can honestly say that "you do have one" ... link below is Walmart, right now Amazon is matching their price, ...

You'd think with that verbiage on the side of the unit there would be one.
What did your dealer tell you during the PDI/Customer Orientation?

If you want to flush, you could always take a hose inside and flush through the toilet.

looks like the lables were not cut or separated before installing.

Black tank flush

I just watched a walk around of your model on Youtube. They show the black tank flush to be below the awning rod next to the door of all places.. Maybe it's not marked on your unit?

here is the link..
