YMMV
Then some of the suggestions do not work. Later RJD

Might be worth a try!


IF your shower head is as close to the toilet as ours (and you have a lot of patience), one could fill the tank through the toilet with the shower head if they so desired.......... Being a toy hauler, I simply drug the hose in through the garage to do the deed.
So, he should put a few tampons in the tank?

On a side note.. I think you MIGHT have been using Pine Sol and Water or similar and it jelled up some time ago (in another thread). Ever figure out why or if it was just getting old and separating?

I have a similar mixture sitting on a shelf waiting to see if it jells like it did in the Blue Streak. Been sitting on the shelf for about 7 weeks and it has not jelled yet.

I have used this gadget on 4 different trailers now and seldom had problems with any of the tank sensors giving a false reading afterwards. I install them in both the black and grey tanks were the nozzle is spraying directly on the tank sensors to rinse them off. It's called Camco Quickie Flush. I test the spray pattern first before installing and drill a couple larger holes to spray toward the sensors.

Does your shower head reach your toilet? If so, fill the tank with hot, soapy water from the shower, let sit a while then drain.
Maybe hot water can dissolve hardened waste, if that's the problem. Good luck.

Heck NO!!!

That's what started the whole mess and the happy ending was my sensors started working right for the first time.

Trust me, I was just fine with the fact that the sensors did not work! LOL

I feel like a real tool putting a sign in the bathroom stating NO tampons in the toilet, but I am NOT going through that ordeal again!!! LOL

the Quickie Flush does a great job, I've installed 4, two gray tanks and two black tanks, on two previous tt,..... I actually have two more hanging in my garage, bought to install on our present trailer, Micro Lite 25KS,..... I bought them before the trailer, not knowing that it would come with a factory installed flush unit and when I was informed(and then verified) that the factory flush unit was mounted on the drain side, which IMO is the wrong side, I was preparing to install one on the opposite side of the black tank,..... but , first did a test and discovered that the factory unit does clean well if used in a certain way(see post #22),...... IMO any tank without a factory flush unit should have a Quickie Flush installed.....................
