Brand New Trailer Brand New plugged toilet

So our 2016 Cherokee 274RK ..... looking down into the toilet I notice there is a plate about 3 inches below where I the toilet drains I can see a spot weld seam
Is this correct ? Should the toilet not drain directly down into the black tank without obstruction ? I had to basically stir a toilet paper backup on this lower plate....seems odd

Yes - quite odd. The toilet on most TTs empties straight into the black tank because the BT is right against the underside of the floor between the frame rails and there is no vertical room for an offset run like in a 5er. If you can't see the bottom of the black tank through the throne, I would think that would be a problem.

Maybe the hole was not drilled through completely and the disc that should have been pulled out is now a flap still attached at one side. They arrive at assembly with no openings at all and all penetrations are made once installed in the unit.

Many installations use fittings such as 45 ells and short sections of pipe to direct flow a short distance to the tank. Ideally it's just below but not always, same problem. Best answer use plenty of flush water.

Our grey water valve wouldn't shut last outing, when I opened it up there was a "half circle" of abs from the hole saw stuck in the valve.

does anyone live with a septic system at home? we rarely flush TP in the bowl, there is a wastebasket that accepts used TP and is dumped in the trash regularly... we do the same in the Shamrock toilet... saves lots of problems when dumping

You should be using RV TP which is about 1 ply and very dissolve able. Never have issues when using what is recommended. Later RJD

My sabre does not go straight to the tank, it has Atleast two elbows.
We use plenty of water and have not ever had a black tank issue.

I've had a septic at my current location for 13 years!
Toilet paper and all heads right to it!
