Keep in find. Non-Potable water means what it says. Do not use it to fill any tanks. It is only meant to rinse hoses etc at dump stations. These are commonly found at public RV waste dumping stations such as those that are found at highway rest areas and stores such as Cabbalas. AGAIN I STRESS NON POTABLE MEANS THAT! NOT SAFE TO BE USED TO FILL TANKS. The potential of contamination and bacteria is too great to take the chance.

Any tank? Or just fresh water tank??
Is it not OK to use it to flush out black tank?

I probably would only use the provided hose to rinse the waste hose. I don't think I would put any non-potable water in the black tank as the source of the non-potable water can nor be ascertained. I don't want to take the chance on any lingering smells in the tank until I could rinse and flush with fresh water. But that is me.....

Funny! but some guys just don't get it! Now that I am into my 8th decade, I just don't let my BP go up over those sorts of behaviors. To include: left lane loungers, tailgaters, barking dogs, loud rap music and on and on.

Life's too short.

Happy camping to all
