Now, now, that's not fair...... You forgot about Detroit's highways!
My family's not shy to use the black tank, so I'm often at 1.5-2 days before I'm full. No time at all for chemicals to really do any good other than masking smell.
To take care of solids I just use the tank flush to fill 'er up 2-3 times after the initial dump and then dump again. Usually that 2nd or 3rd dump I no longer see brown or paper bits in the elbow, so I figure I'm 'clean enough'. Throw in a couple of gallons, some TST, and then drive home.
The TST I put in before I leave the campground sits there until we get back to a campground for our next trip. Sometimes next weekend, sometimes next month. If it's sat for a while I might throw some more TST in when we get there, but usually I don't and just rely on what was added before going home the previous trip.
