Stopped up toilet

Camping here in Katy and the toilet in our 2018 Force has stopped up. It was draining really slow until we took a water hose to it to try and force the clog down. Now it won’t drain at all. We also tried pouring really hot water in it. Any suggestions?

I had that happen once. I used a snake from the inside.

Thanks for snake suggestion, it worked! I know that we will definitely use a lot more water when flushing in the future.

Water is your friend when it comes to the black water tank and flushing the commode.

fill the bowl just like the one at home. Fill the tank with 5 gal. of water after you dump. Do not leave the black gate valve open when on sewer. open and dump then close. You can leave the gray open.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

You can leave the gray open, but it’s nice to follow a dump of the black tank with a dump of the gray to clean the slinky a bit.

Question for DX3 and XL owners; is the toilet directly over the black tank? Or is the toilet on the opposite side? Direct drop requires much less water then trying to flush solids and “stuff” over to the other side of the coach then dropping into tank??
Thanks in advance!!

Depends on floor plan. Some have a macerator toilet.
