Toilet troubles

Hello, I seem to have a buildup of toilet paper that is getting bigger. Any tips on how to get this toilet paper pyramid down to the black tank?

id say use something like this

Flexible Tank Wand - Valterra A01-0187VP - Sewer Flushing - Camping World

to clean the pipe to the black tank and if you dont have a tank flush.

when i dump my tank i spend the few extra mins to run my tank flush to get rid of any residual that didnt leave the tank upon dumping. i may close the black valve for a min or 2 to let some water build up in the tank but be careful with this as if you get distracted you'll have a bigger mess on your hands

I would more interested in fishing it back out with a coat hanger than trying to get it down in the black tank.

if you got a fifth wheel with one of those blasted serpentine lines to the tank, id just send it down as long as its just the neck thats clogged. once clear, inform all the heavy tissue users, we know who they are, that they are to use lots of water before they flush for a good "Gashoosh" to the tank below...these systems are not napkin friendly as well..

We put NO paper in ours. A little inconvenient, but sure does eliminate some problems. I know there will be some here that will disagree with this method, but it works for us & not that difficult to do. Good luck on a yucky clean-up.

A thick branch will do the job. Happens every time we take our trailer out.

Add water to the tank BEFORE using, a tank treatment product will help stuff dissolve.
