Folks tend to forget that an RV black tank is a "holding" tank. It is not a sewage treatment tank or a septic tank or any kind of a waste treatment facility. It's simply a place to hang on to "stuff" until you have an appropriate place to get rid of it. Things to help with the odor might be good but other than that nothing additional is necessary.


Also, I've noticed that guests, untrained in the nuances of RV toiletry, think they need to hold their foot on the flush pedal for 10-20 seconds. I suppose because that's how their home toilet works. Talk about introducing a lot of odorous gasses in to the RV. Especially if the exhaust fan is on. I hold the pedal down for about 25 milliseconds.

I don't dump my tank until full. This can take up to a couple weeks sometimes. I add the 3n1 to help cut down on odors. If it helps in the breakdown of solids that's a plus.

I had same trouble but knot that bad. Found that the TP was to heavy for the system and baby wipes to. All piled up at bottom of toilet. Turned the pump off and used a stick to push around.
I had a 97 prowler and did knot have this problem, Just in the new unit.

If you're having stuff pile up in the bottom of your black holding tank it is probably not related to the type of TP you use but to a lack of flush water. Folks, water is the key to keeping things in a liquid state. If you don't put any in the tank then things get solid. That's not good. It's not really rocket science.

This is an interesting thread The OP came on 9/01/16 and posted his question/problem.


There have been 25 replies to his original post All with good information.


Yet since his post the OP hasn't been back to check or respond to any comments made to his problem. So far its also been his first and only post.


Guess his problem wasn't that important. Or maybe he stuck his head down the hole to see the problem and he got stuck

Talking Don't do #2???

I was amused to read that some people don't do all their business, both #1 & #2, in their campers toilet...

They were designed for just that use so go ahead and use them. Obviously you need to use T-paper designed for camping, we use Scott's single layer in ours, plus you need to add the chemicals that break down the solids but your system was designed for just that.

Some people are against doing #2 because they are not sure how to empty the black water tank at the end of your camping week or weekend. In case your not sure how to do this deed here's the way we empty our system.

1. Always keep the black water valve closed while camping. Never just keep it open as this causes the liquids to drain off allowing the solids to just sit and harden.
2. If you have full hookups at your camp site keep the gray water valve closed, or close it the day before you're leaving so you have lots of gray water to flush the black water nasty stuff down once you dump it.
3. When packing up to leave pull the black water valve and let it flow, lit flow, let it flow...
4. Once the black stuff is out close that valve and pull the gray water valve which releases the torrent of gray water to wash your hose clear of the black water nasty's.
5. Now that the black water and gray water tanks are emptied makes sure both valves are closed.
6. Go into your bathroom and dump in a bottle of chemical into the toilet and add about a gallon or so of water by just flushing it. This will prevent any solids that may be left behind from turning to concrete in your tank.
I have done my system flush like this for many years and never once had a problem, and yes, we do both #1 & #2 in the toilet as that's what its for...
