Like Pmedic4 I use ours with a better quality garden nozzle...rinse sewage hose, clean wheel chocks etc.
We also found that it works great to simply connect to the the black water tank port for rinsing purposes.

On my trailer it doubles as the way to connect into the Black flush tank. It screws into the input.

Why are you taking the chance of contaminating your freshwater system
by connecting to the black tank flush system? With the track record of the
"Back-flow preventer" that Keystone installs that would be the last
thing I'd choose to do ... Something I'd seriously reconsider were I in
y'all's flip-flops ...

It is a quick connect fitting, like an air ine. You have to push the outer collar back while you push the connector in. I have seen them stick, turn the water off and relieve the pressure. Then try pushing the inner ring in with a screwdriver, that might free it up.

I'm not very happy with the quick connects that came installed on my trailer (I have 2). You have to twist and push back on the outer collar while pushing the hose in, and then hold the hose in while pulling the outer collar back into the locked position otherwise the hose will pop out when pressure is applied. I've disassembled my couplers and cleaned /lubed them but they get stiff again before very long because the release balls become rusty, and you don't see this unless you take it apart - it looks perfect from the outside.
