How do I Winterize the Black Tank Flush on Columbus 320 RS?

Hey guys:

I winterized my camper with the help of some of the folks on the forum here, but forgot to do the black tank flush system. How the heck do you do that part? I don't believe there is any kind of pump when you connect a hose to the flush port.

Any ideas?

Thanx guys...

Blow it out with compressed air.

One of these http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...-out-plug/4410 and a small compressor, a trip to the gas station (to use their air hose) or even a bicycle pump will work!

Dang I am gonna have to get me one of them for next year. I didn't blow out my black tank flush line. I looked and followed it and there isn't any ups and downs in it so I hope I will be ok. But I will have to get one for next year.

Water in the line should drain down into the black tank when you disconnect the hose. You don't need to do anything to it.

Depends on how it's plumbed. My flush inlet is right next to my dump outlet, but the actual flush unit is on the curb-side, so that it pushes waste towards the dump. There is a 1/2" tube that runs along the cross frame. Mine will trap water if it's not blown out.

wow! we blow out our water lines and add AF... but NEVER thought about the black tank flash.

But do you really need to flash it out? doesnt the water just go INTO the black tank? And when you take the hose off the water drains out of the hose end? We add AF to the black tank.I would think that the flush head in the tank would be covered. Just thinking.
