We don't pooh in our potty unless we absolutely have to. We use the campground facilities. Less chance of a build up, not as much stink. we also use Pinesol and a tank cleaner/deodorizer. Always start with plenty of water and always keep the Pinesol in the tank with a few gallons of water even if camper is sitting for a while. Helps keep the seals from drying out.

Any other users out there???
YIKES that's expensive stuff! If you want to use a pre-made biologic, this stuff is cheaper and, IMHO, Mo'better

See my previous post - if you use the GEO method (and an occasional dose of RV Digest It) you will have no problems.

I, for one, and not fond of putting my fanny on a public toilet if I can help it

I paid for every inch of my FW and I use every inch. I don't buy stuff for the next owner. DW and I take excellent care of our stuff. If anyone wants to buy our stuff when we are done with it that would be great. If not that is okay too. We get our money's worth.

Man, yall take it to the extreme. I guess if you start with a clean tank it's easier to keep it clean. I use AquaKem and Calgon. 8oz of each and 3-4 gallons of water to prime the tank after each flush. Our TT has the built in flush nozzle. I'll let that run until the tank is full, drain, fill it again, drain, and repeat until nothing but clear water comes out.

Just spent 3 weeks in our TT. Tank and sensors are fine.

Also have a full hookup at the house. If I'm really interested in a deeper clean I'll throw some Digest-It in all the tanks and let it sit for 3-5 days on a full tank.

I am currently using 3 Unique products with very good results.

I just used the RV Digestit in both gray and black tanks on a 5 day trip last week and everything flowed clear in each when dumped.

I also used their Drain Field Rejuvenator and Drain Field Treatment at home and they made a HUGE difference in my drain field performance...was seeing puddled water after showers but no more. Really good stuff...$.02

Have our latest method & it works great...we travel with a couple decent size buckets (to carry all the fish we catch ;-) ) so after dumping the black tank we 'rinse' with buckets of fresh water poured down the toilet ... breaks everything up really well and moves it out. If there is full hookup we really clean it up, if dump station a bucket or two is enough. Add a bit more water & the deodorizer & ready to head home til the next outing (try for at least monthly) ...

This last trip out we did the same with our grey tank, really flushing out from the kitchen sink then the bathroom sink ... lots of particulate material rinsed out of our drain pipes.

In 8 years of camping me and DW has never used the campground bathroom. We never use the outside shower to wash off so I use that hose always hooked up to flush out the black water tank, sometimes I use hot water.
