Use a different white hose to flush. That way others will not think otherwise of it. Just use some preventers and such as normal.

Better yet: Buy a new RV when your black tank gets full. That way, you're not to blame for contaminating any water source.

Not sure about campgrounds not having a dump station. That has not been my experience. Most do even when all sites have full hookups to accommodate folks who just want to dump for a fee. A look at the campground map will usually point you to their dump station. It may be away from the camp sites and inconvenient.

As to the hose, I carry a gray colored 15 foot hose with a permanent backflow preventer on it that I use when flushing and cleaning up my sewer equipment. If the non-potable spigot does not have a threaded male on the end; I just remove it and use my own hose. I keep it in the same tub as the sewer hose and couplings.
