Have water flowing thru the cleanout port and open the blackwater valve and allow tank to empty down to just the slow stream from the cleanout. Close the blackwater valve and allow the cleanout input to fill your tank (you can see peogress with a flashlight shined down the comode and your tank level indicators). It will take quite a long time to fill your tank (the water does not rush in). Then open the valve again and this should empty your tank of all contents and keep your indicator sensors and tank clean. If the water does not run clean at the end of the big dump, repeat as necessary. Now, this should be done at your camp site sewer connection because it takes to long at the community dump site and there will be alot of p-o'd campers. I know someone is going to comment on this input due the closing the valve with water running in but the tank is vented and it is not an issue (google for cleanout procedures).
