Thanks. I'll blow out the black flush line this year in addition to the city water inlet I've done every year.

I live in Ontario Canada. We really get winter. I have never worried about winterizing the black tank flusher. It works really well and has never frozen. Obviously it drains every time you disconnect it.

Am I missing something?

I don't remember anything resembling the sewer flusher connector on the outside of my 2006 Safari?

is this only on some models?

Standard on Classics, at least recent years. Not on my 2003 Classic, but present on my 2005 Classic.

On mine there are 2 seemingly identical city water inlets in the small streetside belly compartment. The 2nd is for the BW tank flush kit. On other models one or both may be mounted on the exterior. I don't know what years or models this was offered as either an option or standard. I believe it is standard on recent Classics, maybe others. In recent years the back flow preventer valve is plastic. It is mounted above the inlet and tank sprayer and is designed such that when the supply pressure is removed, the water will freely drain out of the inlet and the spray head presumably making it freeze proof.

I understand that a friend recently mistakenly hooked up the city water to his flush instead of to his city water inlet. Things overflowed badly, including some things recently put in the toilet.

Not a problem in mine since the flush inlet is much different and located well away from the city water inlet. In addition, I use a quick disconnect fitting on my city water and not on the flush, so I could not hook to the wrong place.

That is why it is so important to leave the valves open when using the flush. What a mess, but with it that full I bet it flushed out good. jim

We haven't made this mistake yet, but I do wish there was more separation betwee the City Water connection and the sewar flush hookup. Additionally I wish the connection for the sewar flush wasn't directly above the city water inlet since it always drips. Even knowing there is an anti-siphon valve, it still makes me a nervous about contamination.

I've not been able to make much use of my black tank flush as most of the camp grounds I've used this year have only had electricity to the site and I've needed to use the dump station after camping. I haven't yet found a dump station in Ontario that has a (working) water supply that I can connect to the black tank flush on my Airstream because what water is supplied has comes through a pipe with no hose connector fitted. My usual course of action is to dump the tank then put some clean water down the toilet when I get home, hoping that any solids left in the tank don't go hard in the meantime.

Camping in the US has been better where most dump stations have had a water supply with a hose connector or I've had a sewer and water point at the site.

Not quite on topic but I wanted to get that off my chest!

I use brass quick connects and white hose on drinking water, and plastic quick connects and green hose for SewerSolution and flushing fittings.
