Black Tank built in flush system

We recently purchased a 2006 Fleetwood Revolution, a step up from our 99 Georgie Boy. When doing the post purchase walk through, the salesman just pointed to a valve and said that was my built in black tank cleaning system. I have been unable to figure out how to operate this. There is a black plastic shut off valve and on the end is a green plastic fitting that just spins on it, no threads on it and it will not come off. So after dumping the tank I am still using the old magic wand to clean the tank!! Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, Steve

Could you post a picture of it? Mine does not have a valve so I am having a hard time trying to get it in my mind what yours looks like.

On our present rig we have two hose connections. One for the grey and one for the black. They can't legally be plumbed directly into the water system but I can run a hose from the hot/cold spigot right beside them. Don't like to do that as the flow isn't as good as direct out of a hose.

I have a valve with a hose connector.
Amazon.com: San-T-Flush Valve Box (SFS200BOXFGH): Automotive
I keep an old hose connected to the valve (not the same hose I use for fresh water).
Step 1 - connect the hose to a spigot.
Step 2 - set valve to which tank I want to rinse (Gray or Black)
Step 3 - open spigot valve to start rinse.
Step 4 - open the tank drain valve


Cheers

My tank has a separate connection to connect utility water to the tank to flush it. Not yet convinced it does a great job. I have one of those wand thingys with the spinning tip left over from the travel trailer days. Don't have a full pressure connection in the toilet area that I can hook it to.

You are right that is a plastic shut off valve with a green plastic quick connect it came with a short hose that has the quick connect on one end and a hose fitting on the other.
