I never have "gunk" build-up in my tanks (or pipes at home) it's good for the environment.
Cracks me up when people claim to not have any build up in their grey and yes...some even say their black tanks...When was the last time you squeezed through the drain hole to go inspect the inside of your holding tank......Just cause the sensors appear to be working properly doesn't mean the soap you are using creates any more or less buildup than any other brand...just means maybe you are managing your tanks properly.

I believe that any soap you choose will do. We use Dawn for dishes.

I like to leave a little water in both tanks occasionally and add a cup of liquid tide, then as I drive to the next stop things get washed around and when I dump at the next stop and the tanks are cleaner. (That is only a bubble machine blowing from my roof vents.)

Yes, those pesky indicators work when and if they please. The shower is full of water honey, says the gray tank needs to be emptied. After a while you learn to listen to the black tank and know when it is ready to dump.

Thanks for the tips.
Our previously owned TT was well taken care of just want to continue not gunk things up.

Google GEO method

The GEO method adds Calgon water softener to the black tank. Probably a good idea for the grey tank too. Our water here in NM is very hard. So hard that a small drip in the plumbing will fix itself with calcium buildup. Sweet.
