Seems like a very complex solution to a simple issue.

I get your idea and if it works the way you want to it's all good.
I have something similar. But I just put a tee with valve on the existing 1/2 toilet supply line. I then have a short garden hose always attached. I saw no need to run a 2nd dedicated line into the bathroom?
I can use the garden hose as a turd blaster or a toilet filler.
The garden hose has a lot more pressure than the toilet rinsers found on many RV toilets
That 2nd dedicated line might be good for winter camping? you could fill and flush toilet without putting water into the entire plumbing system!

Does the water supply provide enough pressure?

In general yes.
The RV is not creating its own pressure. The supply is as strong as the incoming water source!

Kind of a cool addition, but it basically does the same thing as your black tank flush; adds water to the black tank, using an outside source. Also not sure of the need for the cap on the faucet. Wouldn't simply closing the 1/4-turn faucet accomplish the same thing as the little black cap?

Seems like a really complicated version of stepping on the bed alone and pouring a bucket or two of water down the hole.

Oh, wait, a couple of buckets of water gets poured straight over any possible ‘accumulation’ en masse.

neat idea, but if your tanks are exposed would it not be easier to just add a tank rinser? thats what I did on my old trailer... worked great.

Yes. The black plastic cap is merely a redundant device to secure the water line, on the off chance that little fingers of the grandkids might turn on the valve out of curiosity before Grandpa gets there to hook up the vinyl tube during the dumping process. The possibility is very, very remote however.

In reality, I think it just gives the thing a more finished look. [emoticon]

A tank rinser is installed and used every time the tank is dumped. The pipe lets me add water to the black tank, easily and quickly, so I can get maximum flow when the dump valve is opened. It is also faster to refill the tank with more water if a second dump is desired.

I just wanted to put this idea out there in case someone might find it beneficial to them in their particular situation, as I do in mine. If it works for anyone, that is great. If it doesn't, then by all means don't use it. Just have as much fun as you can while enjoying this great activity of RVing.
