Gray/Black Tank flush inlet...?

We're new to RVing, and our new 07 River Canyon 5er. And, on the side near the tank gate valve handles is this water inlet. What's it for and how is it used? Will it send water to both gray and black tanks? Ideas? Experience?

Photo attached. And thanks,

T&C

That's what it looks like to me. A black/grey tank & line flush.

Not sure, but fairly confident that is black tank flush. I've never seen one that flushes both black and grey tanks.
When draining your black tank (gate valve open), hook garden hose to it and let water run for 5 minutes or so. If installed properly, it should help dislodge solids that remain in the tank. Mine works real well.
The first time you use it, make sure you keep an eye under the trailer for water running out of the underbelly (just in case it leaks).

Ditto. In addition to these steps flushing, I leave the hose running and close the black tank valve and let it fill with fresh water then drain again (and sometimes again) to get the "woosh" effect of draining. CAUTION: DO NOT get distracted while doing this or you'll pull a Robin Williams. Don't ask me how I know.

Good luck...
