Holding tank.

I do use RV-Digest-It a "septic like" product on a full tank of water at end of season to do a thorough "digestion" of any remaining black matter for 72 hours before I do the final flush and sanitization as part of my winterization process.

Otherwise a capful of Calgon water softener and a capful of laundry detergent at every flush.

RV Doctor --- RV Waste Management

RV Waste Management
As distasteful as some might proclaim waste management to be, waste systems on RVs are a necessity. Actually, the relative simplicity of waste systems usually means not many problems actually arise as long as a little preventive maintenance and astute practices are employed. As with any major system within the coach, a certain amount of knowledge and attention at varying intervals will keep the unpleasantness to a minimum. Letís begin with this article about waste management. See if you concur. Be sure to click on all the internal links! Iíve provided some interesting side trips to help you grasp the entire context of proper waste management.
Itís one thing to understand all the factors involved with RV waste plumbing systems. And quite another to be able to correctly dump those tanks periodically. Yes, there is a method to the madness! Check out these step-by-step procedures as recommended by waste management and RV industry experts. And do remember to clean up after yourself when using a public dump station. Most RVers understand this, but yet I still find campgrounds with deplorable dump stations. Please be courteous to everyone!
