I See Toilet Paper!!

Wen I flush the Toilet and look down the pipe, I see Toilet paper gathering and not moving. Even when I open the blank tank and flush the toilet for 4-5 minutes. Anybody know what I can do?

Thanks again for the help!! Great Site!!

Do you have a snake? Try to snake it down the pipe and push it along.

Have someone hold the toilet handle open and dump a bucket of water down the drain to move the TP.

The problem could be as simple as to much TP being used (use single ply only), and/or not enough water being used during the flush cycle. Also, I have heard that if the pipe from the toilet into the tank is to long it can create TP jams upon entering the tank.

Might want to consider investing in an automatic black tank rinser http://reviews.walmart.com/1336/7964...ws/reviews.htm or a hand spray wand http://www.walmart.com/ip/Camco-Flex...-Stik/14504324 for cleaning the black tank (helps keep solids from sticking to the inside tank surface).

Be careful using any type of snake because you don't want to damage the tank fill sensor.

That might not be TP. When I look down the throat of my toilet in our trailer I can see some sort of plate (shiny) attached at an angle. The first time I noticed it I thought it was strange and then after thinking about it, I believe it's some sort of "splash guard" for when your traveling with a full or near full black tank.

Again, I'm not positive with my answer so if anyone can me different, I'm all ears.

OK major question here for you... Do you leave the black tank drain valve open?

NEVER DO THIS... always let the tank fill with waste then empty it... there is never enough water in an RV flush to carry away the nasty stuff if you leave the drain open you will loose the liquids but the solids will stay behind and eventually clog the tank...

You can fill the toilet with fresh water. It holds about a gallon. Then flush. The sudden whoosh and the water pressure cleans things left behind.

I had the same thing. Gave it a poke with a stick (burnt stick in camp fire after)and a good flush and away it went. Instruct family members to fill the bowl with water then flush to keep pipe clear as it makes a 90* turn into the tank and the extra water helps carry the waste into the tank this only applies to #2 or paper being flushed of course.

I had the same thing happen on a new camper, Found that during assembly when they glued the pipe in place some of the glue dripped into the tank and caused a bump. Toilet paper would collect on it and not run down the tank. Had to use a long scraper to get it off.

When I am not using my 5th for a while, I hook up my black tank sprayer open my drain and let it run for a couple of minutes, close everything up add a little water and a few ounces of "Pure Power" and am good to go.
