My camping buddy ran a trailer rental for years. The stories of how renters returned black tanks are more than a security deposit could ever handle so I listen to his suggestions.
One thing he taught that seems to help a lot is we always run with a cup or two of cheap, 99 cent store dish soap and a gallon or so of water in the tank. Seems to help keep the brown stuff flowing. Also, always a chemical in the black. Often we skip the gray but always chemical in the black. When we bought our last tt, used the tank was bad. Dish soap and lots of liquid---- yeah I count the used beer in that --- along with long water flushing and always with a chemical and that tank was like new in a couple trips. Sensors even sorta worked on that Black tank too .
