Tank Rinse Valve

There is a valve located in the water closet labeled "TANK RINSE" that turns 45 degrees and has an open/closed position. Can anyone tell me which tank it rinses? There is also a sewer tank rinse which I know what that does but can't figure which tank this other valve would rinse...........grey?fresh? Thanks in advance for your replies. Steve

The Tank Rinse hose connection is for rinsing out your Black Tank. Anytime you have water running into it you will be rinsing the tank (no valve required)

The Tank Rinse VALVE is a little confusing, it is actually located among the Low Point Drains and it is for draining the Tank Rinse feed line after you are done rinsing the black tank.

After Rinsing the Black Tank with fresh water, turn off the flow of water to that hose connection. Now open the Tank Rinse valve, clean water will flow under your coach for 20 seconds or so and eventually slow and stop. This drains the line between the rinse connection and where it actually enters the black tank. Now you can disconnect that hose without a lot of flow back into the wet bay.

The primary purpose for the black tank rinse is to add water to the black tank. If you didn't have this water line to the black tank you would have a problems putting the 4 to 5 gallons you need to start using your black tank. What we do is after 1st dump we refill the black tank from the rinse line to 1/2 full and pull again. Get just as much of solids out on second pull.If you don't have a clear section in sewer connections you need to get one. Pyramiding is when solids built up in tank because not enough water in the tank when using it. Need to use a lot of water in black tank and that were the black tank rinse line comes in.

He mentioned a second tank rinse I would say its for the Gray tank your fresh water tank would not need it because the fresh water tank gets sanitized when you do it a couple times a year.
