What is this connection?

Does any one know what the hose connection under the TV/SAT conector is? Thinking it is grey flush or black flush for rear tank. 2014 Columbus 385bh.

My guess is that is your winterization/antifreeze connection.
Did you find a tube with a 45 degree screw on connector it?

I would say the "Black Tank Flush" label is in the wrong place.

Yea, times 2. The black tank flush sticker is in the wrong place.

The left inlet can't be both a fresh water inlet AND a black tank flush.

Why not?

I ask because I am not sure.

I would like to see a picture of the valves above those connections and the labels for them.

I think you're not seeing the whole picture!
The top is cut off.
That box you can just see the bottom of at the top of the photo
is the city water inlet and fresh tank fill.
Those 2 hose connections that you can see are probably what
they say they are--
black flush and winterize hookup.

That's my guess! I don't have one of them so can't tell for sure......

On mine the connection for filling the water tank and the black flush are the same size.
The one in question is far smaller and looks to be the same size as my winterization connection.
