A friend rented a trailer this summer from/at a campground. The black tank had the infamous poo pyramid in the tank. He had to empty it every day or it would almost overflow.

Before you get full of poo try this. Completely empty the black tank and then dump a few bags of ice cubes down the toilet and then take the TT on a long ride preferly alond a windy road. The ice cubes should slide back and forth and help loosen up stuff. I would then fill the black tank with plenty of water and dump it several times.

In the future change your diet to prunes (or in my case - hot coffee). I hope everything comes out alright.

Also, you can put some water in the tank and two bags of crushed ice and then drive it around. The ice will... uhhh... well it will slide around and hopefully make little molehills out of your mountains.

If the suggestions thus far don't work, I once saw a dealer using a pressure washer wand down the toilet opening to blast away solids... He charged the customer over $500, but that was less than half the cost of disconnecting and dropping the tank, the trying to clean (or replace) it...

Good luck!

How about a grey water tank valve ? Is it OK to just leave it open all the time ?
I have a small grey water tank, and would not survive one shower if I close the valve.

I usually just open the grey water valve, since I would think that there is no solid build up. I use filter and strainer in bathtub as well as kitchen sink.

I only close the grey water valve to make it full in preparation of emptying black tank, empty black tank, and then empty grey tank
Is that wise thing to do or not ?

It's fine to leave gray water lines open, but I usually close mine a day or two before I flush the black tank, as flushing the gray tank AFTER the black, leans all of the poo out of your hoses. I've also put a knife valve at the discharge opening, allowing me to fill a partial black tank from a full gray tank, allowing for a more thorough flush.
