Here is a pretty good video that shows "real world" results from a few different types of tank cleaners. Those reverse flush valves don't do much besides clean the area around the valve.

Same here, and that lets you use nice and soft baby wipes since they are not going down into the black tank.

If you don't want an open waste can with used toilet paper or wipes, get a Diaper Genie to keep next to the toilet.

Don't we all!

Had same type of problem it turned out to be the blank from one of the holes they put in the tank left it in the tank and it blocked the outlet. Had to have a p[umber run a snake up the outlet pipe. Good thing he was a friend.

Question for the readers: How and who would you contact to check to see if it is a misaligned hole, an old hole floating around in the tank, only a partially cut hole, or something else? A plumber? A dealer? Dial-a-friend? I have had two blockages that I have had to snake to clear. My 26rr has a 90-degree elbow below the toilet to get to the black tank instead of just dropping straight in. Any other 26rr owners have a similar situation? Anyone else with this happening? We usually find the problem when we are using a lot of water to flush and it starts to back up into the drain pipe. Just as a preemptive strike: we use lots of water, keep the tank full until 2/3's full before dumping, use both a black tank flush and a Flush King at the dump valve.
