Yeah sometimes I'll hook the outside shower into the black tank flush but it doesn't have enough ass to really do anything.
And I do use my home dump station after the tanks are pretty damn clean which in my case would be my lawn. Lol
Before anybody gets their bowels in an uproar my lawn is 5 Acres

I agree the outside shower/12 volt pump doesn't have enough umph to do a good job.

I have 20 acres myself but I also have a backhoe so I dropped in a 55gallon drum with short field line specifically for cleaning out the tanks.

We were lucky this year and happened to stay at full hookup park on our last trip of the season. That made it easy to do an extended cleaning of the tanks and winterize!!

Can you tell me where you got the fittings to connect the 2 lines together? Having a hard time finding them.

I got them at Lowe’s. But that was over 10 years ago.

The pipes are just 1/2" pex. You can get a pex crimping kit. Two 90⁰ elbows and a little piece of pex at any hardware store.

Quick & dirty = buy a 90 degree 1/2" Pex SharkBite elbow. Connect the two ends together by pushing them into the fitting.
