Well maybe it's the bottom of the tank but it looked like a baffle, cause now that I think about it... I have a lot of water in my tank and I still see the poop pyramid.
How wide deep is an rv black water tank typically. - Totally dependent on capacity.

Filling up the bowl with water before the flush is a great idea. - Try and dilute the poo

I don't think where the poop pyramid is sitting is the bottom of the tank.- it is.

Does anyone know how the plumbing works for toilet to tank. - Very simple: the toilet is over the tank.

Does the toilet dump directly into a open tank? Yup, zero plumbing between the dump valve and the tank.

The tanks are very shallow. 5-6" at best.


Yes, the toilet dumps directly into the black tank.


The plumbing is basically just water flow as you depress the pedal then dropping directly into the black tank.

Oops. Ha ha. Well boy do I feel like a dummy. That's good to know.

So how long do you have to pull the lever to fill the tank with fresh water to give it some float water once you're drained your tank.

Yes 5 to 6 inches makes sense then. Yes it's about that far below the floor that it always sits.

It doesn't take a lot. Basically, you're keeping the poo from dropping directly onto a dry tank bottom, hence poo pyramid. You want it to mix with the water with the chemicals so it can be broken down.

Fill the bowl to the rim and flush. That'll give enough clear water to loosen things up during the next drive.

There's a thread or three around here about putting powdered water softener and laundry detergent in the black tank between uses to keep the sensor probes clean.

Well that's great. I was like daaaarn. I hate this Jayfeather cause the toilet is defective.

Second note. ...

I paid $8,000 for this 30' Jay feather with one slide last august.

Is that a fair price? It's in good shape

My Jayco Skylark has a black tank for the black water, but there is a white baffle directly below where stuff drops out of the toilet to the tank. More water per flush helps some, but some stuff stays on the baffle no matter what.
