Thanks all. I checked it and it is dual purpose. I will try the furnace next time we are at home and its cold. If i use the manufacture date of the trailer, I have until October for 60 month replacement. Where is the best place to buy a replacement? Amazon they are $80-$100 for a replacement.

Get a sewer hose support. Those rocks will put a hole in the hose.

I do. It only screws into the outside of the camper. It doesn't physically go inside the black tank or anything. Am I missing something?

it is always recommended that you use two different hoses, and NEVER swap out the two,....the spray head in the black tank has/at least should have a "back flow prevent-er" valve and it can fail, so the possibly of bacteria working it's way to that black tank flushing connection on the side of trailer is very real,.......

The water jets are spraying *into* the tank and there's a backflow preventer. The bacteria would have to be strong enough to swim upstream against the force of the freshwater. I suppose it's possible, but so are car crashes. In both cases, it's an acceptable risk for me. But to each his own.

I noticed a bit of backpressure from the tank. Very possible is the reminder pressure from the internal hoses that connects to the spray nozzles. I solved the problem with a valve. If you see my pics. The silver connector is an On/Off valve with a quick disconnect. Once you shut the water off at that point, disconnect the quick coupling, no backflush. Just wait few seconds for the internal build up pressure to die. Might add a check valve as an added protection.

If is a free flow, I see the point.

The quick disconnect, not only makes it a breeze to hook and unhook with full pressure on the hose, but saves me the wear and tear from screwing/unscrewing. Now I need to find a suitable cap for the connector end.

in a perfect world, back flow preventers would never fail, but they do in this im-perfect world,.....and when they do they are "open"(not stopping the backward flow), ......so, when/if it fails the bacteria CAN make its way from the tank, by way of the flushing hose, to that outside connection and will be there waiting to say "hello" to any hose that you use, the next time you connect to it,...that's the reason it is advised to use two different hoses,....but you are very right.......to each his own

If you have a hydraulic hose sales place in your area, check out their assortment of dust caps for hydraulic quick connects. They usually have a nice assortment of sizes and one of them would most likely fit.

Great idea! Make sure everything works before you leave. Every dealer/salesmen/factory/rv forum should have this on a 1st to do list.
