prevention in this case is probably easier than cure.

The problem is that there is not enough liquid being flushed with the solids to wash down the elbow.

I have the same issue on my Coachmen, and noticed over the weekend some solid in the elbow. I usually fill the bowl all the way when there is solid present to flush, then fill the bowl one more time and flush to wash it all down.

Like jeeplj8 said, always have at least 1/2 or more bowl of water for any solid deposited and just to be safe, after flushing the solids, fill the bowl half full again and flush it.

My solution

Well, they boys most of the time have it easy. Us girls have to use paper.
With all that paper and water, the black tank can get filled pretty quickly.
I hate to say this, but i put my used paper (#1 only) in a waste basket lined with a bag and empty it often. It's really only a few drops. Saves a lot of tank space. For #2, we use the park's facilities when we can. Otherwise, refer to the above suggestions and use a lot of water, and, of course, biodegradable paper made for RVs.
We are seasonal and we recently on a non-sewer sight, so this is how I stretched the time between black tank emptying. We are moving this season to a lovely new sight with a great view and SEWER! Bonus!!!!
Hope these strategies might work for you to use less paper that is clogging.

Mike and LYnn
