Help

Having problem with black water/toilet
This seems very strange my toilet area is full but black tank has little or no stuff. Pumped out toilet and had the septic stick vacuum pipe all the way down into tank. Tank sounds empty after using toilet a few times full again. Stuck coat hanger straight down toilet no apparent restrictions. Any help greatly appreciated I have always let black tank get nearly full before emptying use good chemicals. Help!!!

Why do you think it's full? Those silly gauges? They're pretty useless. Just ignore them, or replace them with capacitive sensors: https://tankedge.com or this: http://www.rvgauge.com. NUWA is/was using the second of these and I was very impressed. The first is available from Camping World. You can use existing wiring.

The toilet is full and the black tank is empty by that i mean if you try to dump almost nothing comes outMy gauges work pretty well. I can open the toilet flush valve and the toilet is full up yet I can take a coat hanger and it goes through the stuff to the tank. Also yesterday I had the rv pumped by a septic tank pumper. He went through the toilet and put the wand down through the toilet After within several flushes the toilet is full

The toilet itself should contain nothing. Below the flush valve there isn't supposed to be anything except the hole into the black tank. Something is very wrong with the way your toilet is installed or something very large is blocking the hole.

I would say that there is a problem with draining the black tank, but the "pumper guy" would have been able to empty it nearly completely (unless all he did was empty that blocked up toilet).

Very strange. You probably need to take it to a dealer.

Maybe I'm not getting it.

If you continually hold the flush pedal down and run water does the water just fill up the bowl?

Let me understand this...you push the pedal down, the valve opens and nothing goes down? Maybe your roof vent is obstructed? Did someone flush a bath towel?

Maybe (and I'm just guessing here) the water doesn't shut off once he takes his foot off the flush pedal?
