Well Today is day! I poured in the RV Digest-it last night when I poured it in the contents of the tank were visibly the water I poured in last week and floating paper and debris, etc. Today when I looked down the potty this morning all I can see is Brown muddy looking water. So something has definatly happened over night. Also the odor is noticeably better and in my opinion 90% less offensive to the senses. I will be waiting untill later today to dump when it is closer to 24 hours.

the RV Digest-it cost $11.00 in case anybody was wanting to know.

Talk to you soon.

Dan

Dan, where do you live? I need to be sure that I'm not in the state/city when the levee breaks.

This si a long thread just on one black water tank clog. Let's see if we can make 10 pages and 100 msg before the flow.

Too much

I'm waiting to see what the "OUTCOME" is of this little drama. Glad I'm not camping this weekend so I can be here to get the news!

Well here are the long anticipated results, the RV Digest-it Did unclog the tank but it is far from a clean tank. I dumped it a few hours ago and there was a great bit of Brown liquid and "solids" the smell is better but not gone.

I called the Mobile RV Holding Tank Service and they are here now doing a complete flush and cleaning of all the tanks and the water heater. They do charge extra for the clogged tanks so the $11.00 was not a loss after all.

I probably could have done the fill and flush method and not called the mobile service but we are wanting to use the camper and not have to wait for the smell to be gone.

At least the tank is clean. I would think that the 'digester' would need more than 24 hours to resolve an impacted tank.
I had no idea such a service existed.....Guess they got their s**t together.......
