I can't get my arm down the toilet and into my holding tank..... It's several feet to what would be the top of the water line if it was full. The tank is another foot deep.

Headed out.. Good luck

I have a thought. drain and flush the tank completely to get all the good stuff out. Then get a wad of gorilla tape and make sure it is stuck completely to a rod of some type. Then work it around in the empty tank. If you can get it on the bottle it will certainly stick and you will be able to pull it out. Hopefully. Oh well, I was in charge of mid-night reconnoitering in the Marines in Viet Nam. Came up with some brilliant ideas over there! LOL

If you drain the tank then refill it should float if the lid was off when you dropped it in.

The next time you are in a campground with a sewer hookup I would block the side with the awning and door. Put it up 6 or 8 inches from level. Use a garden hose and fill the tank. Hold the sewer hose up slightly so you can see what is coming out and drain it. If the bottle is small enough to pass through the hose it should come out.

If the lid is off the bottle it has possibly sunk to the bottom. If it is floating the chances of it floating right below the toilet where you could see it would be slim to none.

Let us know if you get it out and good luck with it.

Glad you were able to get that out....you don't want to leave anything in your tank that could "hold-up the exit line" out on a camping trip.

You've earned yourself a shower!
