Freedom Express 292BHDS

I have a Coachmen Freedom Express 292bhds, 2012 model. My question is around flushing out the black tank. Apparently this model does NOT have a black tank flush on the outside of the trailer. How do y'all flush out the black tank?? Am I missing something?? Is the only alternative to feed a house through the window, across the camper, into the camper and into the toilet? Holding down the toilet flush takes forever to fill the black water tank.

Also, what awning tie downs do y'all recommend for this model? Seems even with the slightest breeze my awning jumps up and down. I'm talking "the slightest breeze". Yes, awning arms are tightened down too.

We got ours in July of 2012 and love it so far. Had a couple issues. One of which the bracket holding the strut on the outdoor BBQ separated from the door itself. Anyone else have this issue with their BBQ door??

Not sure what kind of awning you have but there is these.

You can purchase a flush wand with a hose that you attach to the bathroom faucet and rinse the tank that away. That's what I did when we had a TT that didn't have a tank mounted rinser. I've also back-flushed the tank using a 'Flush King'.
