Toilet bubbling

Question:
My toilet is bubbling when I flush it. I thought that may have been the "burping" that I heard about when the black tank is full. I emptied the black tank but the bubbling/burping continues. I have my tank heaters on, does that cause bubbling/burping? If not, any guesses?

Sounds like a vent problem.

A poop pyramid might be forming. No I'm not trying to be funny. Try pouring a 5 gal bucket of water as fast as you can down the toilet to break it up.

New RV I see....how have you been handeling the Black tank when you were camping (i.e. were you hooking up to a sewer and leaving the black tank valve open all the time?)

Here is a permalink to some tips on Black tank maintenance and cleanout:

Putting in larger black tank?

HTH!!

Thanks guys. I'll check the vent to make it is clear. I only dump the tanks when they get full. I've only had to dump them 2 times since I picked up the RV a few weeks ago. I'll give ya'll's suggestions a try. I just need to make sure I'm not sitting when I flush or I'll get a surprise.

Remember water is your best friend, if you do not have to ration water you are better off using more rather than less.

Thanks everyone. I found another thread with an identical problem. It was from cdnwillyg. I believe my problem originated when I used the black tank flush and pushed something up in the vent, blocking it. I'll see what can be done to clear it. Maybe a short drive with the tank half full and maybe with 10 pounds of ice in the tank before I pull out.

Thanks again everyone.

I was going to suggest the same thing especially if you have a straight adjustable nozzle and have someone turn the water on after you shove the hose & nozzle down the stack.
