Cleaning tank sensors

Found this link the other day when I went sideways on a google for the seelevel tank gauges...

Quite the recipe.

Anyone try this or similar?

Seems like it ought to work. The problem is that I can't quite shake the image of an RV going down the road with soap bubbles pouring out of the vent pipe.

That's very possible, and I agree funny.
I imagine the dump station would end up something like this...

I was wondering if just some ice cubes would be enough to give a good scrubbing.

This is my first go-round with a TT, and am probably overly paranoid about the tanks and don't even have an issue.

Thought I had a good empty after the last trip, but he (poor) gauges were still showing some material.
It's most likely from the uneven grade at the dump-site (roadway sloping away from the dump)

I usually don't worry about it. One way to keep you sensors clean in the black tank is to limit your paper use. Paper is the main culprit. Another is to get a good chemical that breaks down the paper better. But like I said I just don't give it much thought. I know I can go 5 days on the black with the wife, 2 kiddos, and me. Grey tanks are about 2 days each if we conserve.
