Some wands are made to go straight down the pipe, others are made so that they will bend for those toilets that have a bend in the pipe.

I have seen them at rest stops in every state I have been in. Wash, Oregon, Cal, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Colorado.

dumping

Don't most campgrounds have dump stations?
Why can't you rinse and dump on the way INTO the campground?

So much stuff came out it wasnt funny.
i heard that using water softner salt diluted in hot water and then ice cubes will even take mopre stuff so this Canadian Thanksgiving we will try this again. and see what we get out for the last trip of the year.
I could be wrong,,, but I think most of us use a Water Conditioner,,,
Like Calgon !!!

The previous owners of a 2004 Rockwood stayed seven years in a RV park, kept lines attached and the waste gate valve open at all times --- not good. Over the years solids accumulated in the bottom of the black water tank. I am in my second year of ownership and still get "leftovers". Back-washing is working.

zalewskim, have you tried RV Digest-it? Following directions, it's supposed to turn everything into a liquid in 24 hours. I use it and find it works.
