I have to ask, why did you take Pic of your sewage as you were leaving?

Ole man...this brings back a nasty memory for me. 25 years ago we had a "non camper" lady friend flush an item that you are not suppose to flush in an RV. On this 95 degree hot humid July day, I went to a local RV dealership to dump since we had 2 other couples with us on the way home and the ladies had to use the bathroom every 50 miles. (Well, it seemed that way.) Anyway, when I went to dump, her feminine item turned sideways just at the tank outlet on that old 1972 Winnie. Ultimately, I had to reach my arm up the pipe elbow deep and pull it out. When that came out in my hand, everything behind it came blasting out. I'll leave the story at that so all you folks can put your own "unhappy ending" to it. I will tell you that it took me a while to clean up the dump station and myself...and not to mention I gagged for half an hour. Go ahead and laugh, it will not hurt my feelings. I've told this story for years. Needless to say, from then on my DW has always had the "you don't flush xxx down the toilet in an RV" conversation with all our guests.

Purely to post it here to share my misery. I knew I had a mess waiting for me- just didn't expect it to get worse like it did (in hindsight it is obvious that it would).

Note to self: Buy a clear sewer extension for RV, and never read FRF again before eating breakfast.

Ahhh...the joys of RVing! Hasn't happened to me yet. I do appreciate the fact the DW takes on the task of dumping the tanks...bless her heart! She also catches plenty of grief/kidding from my RV friends as she has a strict policy of no #2 in the tank, only in the case of an emergency. She insists we all trek to the bath house.

I agree with you, about the clear elbow, that could have been a real crappy situation
