2019 Surveyor 247 BHDS Back Flush?

I was wondering since new to this.. hope this is not a repeat question. Can anyone tell me on this new model if I must use another water hose, other than the fresh water hose to back flush the black water tank since it has a specific hose connection above the black water tank?

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

Regular garden hose will work for the black tank flush. You obviously don't need to pay for one that's safe for drinking water. I keep mine in a tub with the dump hoses and latex gloves. Separate tub for drinking hose and water connectors.

I just use one of those X-Hose collapsable hoses. Packs up small and I don't have to worry that it's not drinking water safe.

Edit:

But, to answer your original question, no, you don't HAVE to use a different hose. The actual chance of contamination is minimal. It's just highly recommended to eliminate even that minuscule chance.

Thanks to all. Better safe than sorry.
