We dump a 20lb bag of ice in ours right before we start on our trip home. The solid pieces of ice agitate the solids and then melt.

No harsh chemicals.

Thanks everyone for the tips, I will take all under advisement for sure! I'll also look for this Calgon stuff... I want to keep these tanks in top shape!
What brands of tank treatment do others use? I'm not sure the brand I'm useing right now, they are blue packets that the RV parts guy sold me...

Calgon, take me away! Who remembers that?

We have heard of Calgon for the geo method. Have not tried it yet but need to because our tanks are a little stinky at beginning of trips even though we flushed them and added a packet of stuff.

X2, but, I go inside and shine a flashlight down the tank while holding the foot pedal open. I can watch the water swirl, see TP swirling around, etc. When it hits to the bottom of the pipe, I go outside and open the valve. I do this 2vtimes and my tank is clean.

My family knows NOT TO DISTRACT ME while I am messing with the pottie in any way. ��
