Question How to add a b/tank flush system

I have been thinking about adding a black water tank flushing system to my Argosy 26 TT.I have a rear bath model with the hopper above the tank..I presently flush the tank with a hose and wand, which requires,draging a hose thrrough the trailer,leaving the door open etc..
Has any one added an external flushing system to their trailer,black water tank???Any info on installation of a flushing system would be appriciated...

You might check out a product called "Flush King". I think it is about $40-50 at Camping World. I have been using it for the past couple of months, and my Black Tank seems to be very clean after use.

I'm sure the flush out is a real neat feature, but alas, I too don't have it.

What seems to work well for me is that I just dump the tank and add chemicals if it's a long trip and then dump at the end with some of the remaining fresh water that I purge before the trip home.

For me, once home, I flush the tank out really well. I have a poke through sewer line next to the driveway. At home I don't have to worry about bacteria or someone else's mess draping though my trailer since is all clean and I know where the gear has all been.

I have also noticed that some dump sites don't have a garden hose connector making the flush feature I have seen not work without mods.

Anyway, just thought I'd share what I do in case you come across the same type of dump station.
