NEW 25 FKS owner - Black Tank Flush?

Hello all... first post, and my first travel trailer!

Im actually loving it as we learn along the way. Recently just returned from Yosemite National Park and have a question about FLUSHING the Black Tank: HOW DO YOU DO IT?

Is there a connection for a Black Tank Flush on the 25 FKS, if not whats the best way to flush the tank

thanks in advance!

Do a search on the topic. Lots of people manage this in different ways.

If you have a BT flush it should be labeled on your rig.

thanks, thats why I decided to ask. I did NOT see one on the Trailer. Just the Antifreeze Inlet. I scoured youtube looking for anything and various trailers had the black tank flush but Im wondering if it was an "option" I needed to added to add when the trailer was built.

Welcome... 1st post.

There are many posts on black tank flushing and maintenance

The first stop will be the Library section.

Here is a link... FRF LIBRARY

Next would be a search. here is one such search link...
Black Tank Flushing

Did you buy this unit new?

This (and many other R/V 101 items) should have been part of your PDI/Customer Orientation.

It will look just like a city water connection but labeled Black Tank Flush.

If you dont have one, a hose down the toilet accomplishes about the same.

Type in search box above...Black tank flush cleaning

From pictures of new 25fks it looks like the black tank flush is on the back of the trailer, either next to your fresh water inlet or on opposite side where if you have a ladder factory mounted it is behind the ladder. Every picture I try looking at is blurry, but you should have Fresh water inlet, city water inlet, anti freeze inlet and black tank flush all on the rear of the trailer.
