383FB black tank flush on panel no hose is connected?

There in no hose connected to the black tank flush connection on the panel? when I tried to flush the tank with the black inlet connection it just flooded the the rv's basement
This unit has a half bath and has 2 black tanks, and there is a second "blank tank flush" to the right of the panel. this one works.

Check behind the panel. The hose may have just come off.

So there is a connection, but no hose? Check inside your bathroom cabinets and see how many vacuum breakers there are. If there are 2, the line is probably in there somewhere, but not pulled all the way through into the panel area.

Just one or are there two? Check both baths. Mine were both in one bath, but I've seen them in both.

Sounds like they forgot to connect the hose in back of the hose connection in the water closet. Factory goof up.

In our 2017 383FB I find it odd that the right black flush connection flushes the front bath black tank and the connection on the back panel flushes the rear 1/2 bath black tank. The Front black handle dumps the rear 1/2 bath black and the rear black handle dumps the front bath black. Counter intuitive in my opinion. And why have two dump connections?? Route it all into one like most trailers. Odd design!!

I also have a 383FB 2017 Had to label all connections and valves. No rhyme or reason. The lables on the side of the rig re just as bad.
