Black tank plugged

So my nightmare has come true. My black tank seems to be plugged. I have a wash down i pan to use when i get home.

I filled it with about 10 gallons of water to flush it and the toilet over flowed. Some was leaking out of the under belly. Plan to check that out later. Got to dump station. A bunch came out. Dumped another 5 gallons and that seamed to come out. But the next 5 gallon bucket did not. What are my options????

Thanks

I would rather deal with it at home if I had a place park it.

Driving it may help loosen the clog.

Get a hose mounted tank flush and shove it down the toilet drain. Something like https://www.amazon.com/Valterra-A01-...id=pla-4367849

This happend to me a few years ago. Toilet was full but nothing came from black tank when slide was opened. With us, was a Camco RV Flexible Swivel Stik with Shutoff Valve

https://www.amazon.com/s?k=black+tan...-mkt-opr-us-20

...that I was able to put into the schmuck in the toilet and pushed toward the drain end of the tank. That pushing was enough to break the "damn" and empty the tank. Once we returned home we used this product to liquify the remaing Kling-ons:

After letting it sit in the tank for a few days, we headed to another camping trip and dumped the contents of the tank at a rest area with an RV Dump Station on the way.

Hope your results are similar!

My biggest concern. There was black tank water dripping out of the bottom of the trailer. Where the black pipe drops through the under belly. Hope it just ran down the pipes. But doubt that is the case. I assume it ran out of the bottom of the toilet.Need to get under there and look

Good luck. Worst case take the Toilet. Out of the trailer, you will probably be able toseewhats going on then.
