Black Water?

I do not have a well (this year) but do have a sewer hook up. I also am not able to tow the trailer to a dumping/clean out station. Is there a way to flush out the Black Water tank, without the use of a water hose? Because of this issue, should I use the expensive Bio-Degradable RV toilet paper?

You have a sewer hookup, so if you can fill the black tank with water and RidX, Roebic K40 lateral line cleaner, or other such product; allow it to sit for a week or as long as possible before dumping the contents into your sewer hookup. You don't need the force of pressurized water to clean the tank. If it is full ,the force of the evacuating water will carry out any solids remaining after one of those additives does its job.
