Black Tank flush line leak

I have a 2003 Bounder 35e, and have a leak in the black tank flush line. I notice water leaking into the generator compartment(from the top), and inside the rv the rug is wet underneath the little make-up vanity by the window. I have pulled the cover that goes from the bottom of the shower and cannot find the leak. I also have followed the line as far as I can from the outside compartment and still cannot see the leak. Wondering if there is a way to access this line (easily) to find the leak. Thanks in advance.

Can you get to both ends of the hose? Then pull a new hose

There is a vacuum break,in the hose to the tank, to prevent black water from backing up from the tank to the flush hook up, they are prone to failing.
They will be mounted above the level of the top of the toilet, mine is in the back of the vanity cabinet against the underside of the counter top ; only visible with the drawers removed.

Had to replace mine this summer. Make sure to increase the limit on your credit card before you go to purchase the replacement.
