clogged toilet drain

Any tips on removing a toilet-paper (I think) induced clog in my 8329ss? Not in toilet itself but in piping that goes to black tank. I have tried coat hanger and a chunk of Pex tubing to no avail. Thank you.

Good chance what you are dealing with is construction debris.

What year is your unit?

Since you Don't know what it is,and you didn't supply any Info,lets try a process of Elimination! Are you missing any (Pets/Kids Toys/Diapers/Towels/Shoes/Beer cans/ Rolls of TP)? If this checks out OK then how much Water have you/them been using to Flush? The more the merrier! How long has it been in this condition? First time out this year? Is the unit NEW? Maybe some additional input is needed! Youroo!!

If you don't have a drain snake, go to Harbor Freight and get one and run it down the drain slowly and pulling it back often until you bore thru the clog. Keep plenty of water in the toilet also while doing this.

Is it clog between toilet and black tank or black tank and discharge sewer outside connection?
