Black water tank ?

Alright...my family and I are just a week away from our first camping trip with our new Roo. I think I have most of the issues worked out and I think I have got all the systems figured out(this is our first TT). One last question...how many liters or gallons does it typically take to cover the bottom of the black water tank to initially setup for use to add chemical etc? It's a 30 gallon tank. Thanks.

I try to keep at least 2-3 gal in the tank all time I am traveling just to keep things stirring. I mix 1cup SuperClean, 1cup Pinesol, mixed with 1 cup water and dump it in the toilet and then 2 or 3 full toilet bowls of water.

Agreed, 2-3 gallons or about 4 full toilet bowls worth.

Thanks for asking this. We are new TT owners too and I was wondering the same thing. Does the same recommendation apply for the grey tank?

Enjoy the new Roo!

We are new TT owners too. This is our second season with our Roo. We were told to do the same thing with the grey tank.

Enjoy your new Roo! We love ours!

I've historically never done anything to my gray tank and it's not been an issue, but I'm going to start the ego method mentioned above later this year.

NEVER have added water to the gray tank.
it fills up way faster than the black tank and i need every gallon of space in it. we rarely camp with hookups.
