I never look at my black tank gauge. I know we can stay 6 days before it needs to dump because we are the only ones using it.

I agree. I chased that rabbit several years ago and gave up. After 8 years of full time RV'ing I know when my tank is going to get full and the final indication is when it burps. Then dump.

I agree with Norty1 and Edatlanta. I gave up on that a long time ago. They are just not going to be accurate. After a little use, you should have a pretty good idea when to unload!

Try a wand. Pour a little LA Awesome in first, then let the wand work for 10 minutes or so, let it sit for 10 minutes, then use the wand again for 10 minutes with another squirt of LA Awesome.

You can also try putting about 5 gallons of water and a 20# bag of ice in it on your next trip out.
