'06 22' Black Tank Washer question...

So... did my winterizing yesterday... there is a local sani-dump that services 2 campgrounds, so that was handy. I don't think the previous owners ever pooed in the thing... it was pretty clean...

But, I see the opening for the black-tank flush, and try ram the rubber rinse house at the clean-out into it (no fitting on the hose). Water goes everywhere, but eventually I hear some kind of water-jet type of noise from inside.

But... when I am done, I can see water dripping out from the belly... So, I am not sure if I blew out the pipe leading to the tank, if there is some kind of pressure regulator that popped (and reset), or maybe it was just water from the hose when it initially wasn't going in.

Either way - I'd like to get a look at it and see... the inlet for the flush is sealed tight... couldn't pop it off without cutting the seal... so I left it... as for what is going on behind... do I need to drop the belly pan, or is there another way to see it?

It's an 06 22' International...

I can't really put more water in it right now, as we're getting freezing temps at night...
