Keep at it until you get all the stuff out.

Got it, got a bunch of wet wipes and poo, Also a handful of black Beatles. Used a combination of the hose from outside and a per form ( 6 foot peace of twisted metel for holding wire) down the toilet for two hours and boom poo title wave. Thanks for the input. Gordon.

Great effort and teamwork! Not a fun task and one that is dreaded by all of us. Although, I have a built in tank flush, I always carry a Flush King just in case. I had an issue with wet wipes clogging the sticks n' brick toilet...you need to make sure that guests also know the toilet rules!

rule of thumb

I read once, if you want to put it in the toilet, try this first

put some water in the sink. put a piece of the paper in the water wait about 10 seconds, use your hand and slosh the paper about for about 10 seconds, if it starts to dissolve, it is safe for the toilet, if not, don't use it! This is how I buy my paper, not all paper is marked sewer safe, but this test works.

Cottonelle flushable cleaning cloths will break down in water. Try one in a jar of water let it set for a minute or two give it a shake and it breaks into little pieces.

Just eliminate the problem entirely and put paper products in the trash can and empty daily. We use the same brand in the camper that we use at home. Don't have to worry about it!

Now I know that you have received lots of suggestions, but my wife has one more for you. Only use TP made for RV toilets. She calls it the Angel paper, because it disappears in your hands with even the slightest amount of moisture in the air! We learned our lesson years ago when we tried Charmin. That required a lot of sweat and agony to get out of the tank and hose. Sometimes using that TP is like not using any at all! So keep lots of soap and water on hand.

I know I added it late but did you actually dump and open all the valves and all.. Just want to make sure the tank is just not full.

I think the problem is at the Valve and your unit should flush any thing back from that area if you have lots of water pressure......Wipes should NOT be flushed down the toilet..They also will block the septic systems at any CG! Get a big Tub and push backwards from the outside and stand back!!!!!!
