Angry Black tank design flaw

Brand new 2016 Columbus 375
Love most all features but....toilet plumbed to black tank uses a 90 degree elbow to get into tank. It jambs up with anything but liquid
Awaiting Forest River providing a solution to the dealer
Any one else have this problem?

The more water idea sounds ok unless you are dry camping. Hope the dealer can get it straightened out for you.

A ninety-degree bend in a sewer pipe is JUST PLAIN 'OL POOR DESIGN!

No excuses can be made for that.

Just fix it right, thank you!

From recent history, it's getting apparent that they can't possibly be using graduate design engineers any more.

Not much choice if the tank is not located under toilet.

If you don't use at least a toilet bowl of water with the solids, you will get a blockage. Like has been said " water is your friend". We dry camp about 95% of the time and we have a 59 gallon hard tank and a 50 gallon fold up container. We're prepared for dry camping because where we go there is nothing. There's a 45 degree bend under our toilet and our 5er is a 2009 model.
