X2. 3 RVís and this is an excellent method.

Happy Camper (one scoop) and a capful of Calgon liquid water softener (Wal Mart), mixing about a gallon in a five gallon bucket, dump it down the toilet to the empty recently-dumped black tank, add another gallon or two of water and good to go. Nothing for the gray tank.

I agree with Rusty. Happy Camper is the way to go. and Amazon had the best deal.

I like Happy Camper because it does not have any scent. When using it, my toilette doesn't either.

For regular treatment while camping, we use Walex Elimonator in the gray and the Walex pine in the black. Both get a Walex Commando treatment (the black twice a year, gray once a year). We have been very pleased with all three products.

Sounds good. I'll give the Walex stuff a shot for sure. I've also put a tub of the happy camper in my rig due to the number of positive inputs for that. This newby appreciates everyone's input!!

The seasonal Commando treatments have really done a super job of gettin' 'er clean! DW loves the Elimonator, nice lemon scent for the gray. She dissolves one every two-three gray fills.
