Black tank is clean now. Before the trip, I drained it empty, and put half a gallon of bleach down the toilet, and continued to flush it until only clear chlorine water came out.
The issue since is if the water pressure is too high, it blows past the one-way valve under the bathroom sink, leaving a puddle of water after flushing the black tank.
So today, I removed that valve, and instead, used a brass back-flow protection fitting on the outside of the trailer between the freshwater hose and the black tank flush connection.
Now, I can flush under high pressure, and no dripping onto the floor.
Tank is clean. After about 5 minutes of running the black tank flush, water runs clear through the sewer hose.
