Help!! Toilet stopped-up

Hi, Help. 04' All American Sport 36CK 5th Wheel Toy Hauler. Toilet will backup. Black tank is empty. New to RVing. Took 4ish trips last yr. no problem. This first trip the toilet backed up. It's not a straight shot to the black tank, so you cannot see straight down. There are two 45's in between the toilet and the tank. I was hesitant but I used a snake to free things up. I was very difficult, a lot of resistance, I thought it would be a straight shot. But It worked. It stopped up again. Thinking the dump valve was clogged I went under the RV and pushed in the black tank it was empty. It clears every time you snake it but something's not right. Is there a valve going into the tank, a piece of pluming that may have gotten loose? Help, Mike

You could try to pour clear water from a bucket down the toilet (holding the flush valve open). If water doesn't pass, maybe something has fallen down there and lodged in one of the 45 degree fittings. One of those wall inspection cameras would be a handy tool if you had access to one. I have never pulled a toilet but you might have to so that you can get a better look. I hear that it is fairly easy.

There should not be a valve under the toilet and the fittings should be glued PVC, like house plumbing. Just my thoughts. Good luck.

Maybe a small "mountain" just inside of the tank. Try one of the "hose" tank sprayers that you put down into the toilet. They work much better than a snake.

Good Luck !!!!!!

Pull the toilet, 2 nuts and the water connection, use a flashlight and a mirror on a rod and take a look. You might have a tank cutout just turning and blocking the pipe. If that's the case, a wire finger clamp might be used.

I had that problem with my grey tank. Turned out it was the wood floor cut out blocking the pipe for the drain on the grey tank. So I'm betting that is your issue. Follow OldCoots steps to solve your issue.
