Outside water input question

I have 2022 kodiak ultralite 201qb and i have a outdoor water question. Hopefully the picture loads. But on the side are two spots for water to go in the trailer. One is clearly marked as the city water, and that seems to do its thing when i hook a water hose to it. What is the one next to it for? Its not the fresh water fill because its out of the picture to the left. I originally thought it was a black tank flush but the last time i dumped the black tank and attached a hose to it, i could hear water going somewhere, but no water coming out the dump drain. Where is the water going? Any idea? The spot isnt labeled.
Thanks for any help.

Check to see if your fresh water tank is filling up.

IF it is, I would be worried about overfilling the tank.

I would recommend you get a black tank flush system that operates on the elbow for the drain system.

Looking at the image on the right, just under each of the two hose attachments are the words grey tank and black tank. The connections are used to put a water hose on to help flush out the two tanks.

I'd say those labels are identifying the pull handles under the skirt to drain the tanks. The main drain is just below in the picture. I don't know what the second connection is on the right but the one on the left is labeled city water connection so it would not be for the grey tank. It would be very odd to me to have the black flush right next to the fresh inlet so is it the fresh water tank fill?
"edited" After looking again, it looks like the label on the right of the connections is the instructions for a black tank flush. It's too blurry to read it for sure but it sure looks like it. I'm not a fan of it's placement though.

It is not familiar to me, but I found this youtube when searching for your model and this guy says that a similar looking panel on a similar camper is a "city water connection and a city water flush." I don't know what a city water flush is.

I suspect it is some type of winterizing connection. The little black levers on the picture correspond with green and blue dials in this item.

What you're looking at is completely different. The two black items you call levers on the Op's unit are rubber covers for cable/TV connections.

Ok, we have made several suggestions about these ports. By now, you should have tried them all. Which one is it?

Sad to me that the seller didn't bother to go over the RV.....and /or Kodiak doesn't bother to provide an owners manual...

It is the black tank flush and mine works great. I have attached a 45 degree connection on mine and leave on always so I don’t get it confused, I also have a separate black hose that is only used for it. I recently upgraded the fresh water hose connections with quick connectors so there is no way to hook them up wrong.

The unmarked water connection is the black tank flush. Underneath the flip up cover is a quick connect fitting to your fresh water line, call it an outside shower LOL. If your black tank flush is like mine, it doesn’t work worth a crap.

If it does wind up being freshwater tank fill, empty the onboard freshwater tank and leave drain open. Hook up hose and see if water starts to come out the freshwater tank drain line. Keep an eye on your black tank level, many people have overflowed the black tank connecting water to this supply.

Probably figured it out right after he posted and forgot about it.

Probably not interested in becoming a regular user.
