Black tank flushing on 8281SS

I have a 2011 8281SS with front and rear black tanks. When I connect the hose on the side of the camper for flushing the black tank, does it do both tanks or just the larger front tank?
Thanks.

You have 2 Black Tanks? You sure it's not 1 Black Water Tank & 1 Grey Water Tank?

Actually I have 2 grey and 2 black tanks. 1 black for front bath, 1 grey for front bath, 1 grey for kitchen/ back bath and 1 black for back bath. There are 3 outlets, 1 for the front bath grey and black, 1 for the kitchen/rear bath grey and 1 black for the rear bath. I spend like 7 days at the dump station.

Damn !!!
That's a whole bunch of tanks.

Process of elimination:

To find out which tanks the rinsers are attached to, with the tanks empty and cleaned, connect a hose to the rinser inlet. Turn you water supply ON and slowly operate each tank valve(one at a time). If water come out, the rinsers are attached to that tank.

are you referring to the Large Dump hose that attaches to the sewer?

Ah, ha. That may be what 4Rasnicks is talking about. I may have misunderstood.

I figured by saying Flushing the blank tanks, 4Rasnicks is referring to Dumping the black tanks.

I have an 8281SS also...and nope...there is no black tank flusher for the rear tank. I installed a tank tornado...mounted the hose connection under the rear bumper.

Look really close... On mine there is a toggle switch right next to the inlet for the flush

Thanks bobsquarepants, that is what I figured. I could hear it working in the front but did not in the rear. Also, you would have to keep both black valves open and they are 20+ feet apart. Thanks again!
