There's a product for swimming pools called Pool Perfect that is amino acids or also known as enzymes.
This stuff works wonders for pools to break down oils etc...
It might work to help break down stuff in your black tank.

Many places to dump in my area. I use Cabela's they have a dump station right in their parking lot. You can also check with local sewage plants many let you dump or check last rest stop closes to home with dump station . Flying J stations also have dump stations.

I use mine on the last day of a trip for #1 only until I get home. When I get home, I dump, spray out the tank with my onboard spray system, put about ˝ a gallon of fresh water in the tank and call it a day.

Unique RV-Digest works well also. I have used my macerator pump as well and have used a bucket to drain until full and then deposit in the toilet in the house. You get used to the smell...use rubber gloves if you are clumsy while carrying the bucket.

Make it easier

Buy yourself a porta potty and use it! I HATE rest areas and dreaded, nasty, stalls. Just stow it until your last dump. Add your chemicals and be on your way.
Flush it down your home toilet!

I have two cleanouts in my yard. I just hook up like I'm at the campsite. I actually just did this to winterize. If I will be camping in a few weeks I just make sure there is plenty of water in the tank and make sure it is treated instead of worrying about dumping.

RV Dump Stations | Locate RV Dump Stations in America and if that fails to give a close option I discharge to a couple of plastic 5 gallon pails in the driveway. Dump them in the toilet in the house and all is well.
