Need help with 2010 20 FC

I have a leak on the black water flush system. When I use the flush I have a small drip of water from outside next to the wheel well. Would anybody know what is the best way to get to the water flush connections to the tank?
This model has the black water tank inside above the floor so maybe some other models have similar arrangement?
Thanks for help

I also had a small leak when using the flush. It was hard tightening the hose on the connector, it would drip into the compartment and eventually onto the ground in front of the streetside front wheel. Made up a 2' section of hose, double washered the end, tightened well and left it connected. Now just attach it to the outlet valve or city water and flush away.

The leak is not from the outside hose connection, nor it is inside at the first fitting. The leak is somewhere around what looks like a pressure regulator or a back flow preventer. Would somebody know what is this for? In every case it will not be an easy replacement of gaskets or the gadget itself. Please ignore the first fuzzy picture. On the second picture the flush hose goes through the wall and is attached to the gadget from the bottom and the outlet from the side is going down to the tank.
Thanks for help.

Also, please note extremely well cut holes through the inner aluminum skin, great plumbing design with all fittings accessible and pipes well marked. Great job!!

That is the check valve or back flow preventer for the black tank flush.

Thanks Schu. Would you know if it can leak from the body. I will check the connections to it, plug the outlet and leak test it from the hose to the outlet of the check valve. I will get to it late September when I get back home.
