I stopped using chemicals for some time before adding the Blue Streak. I was always told the chemicals never had enough time to even do anything when you add them then dump within a few days. We used to dump the black tank every trip. So I figured what was the point.

I have camped with the winnebago for 12 years and have never used chemicals and have never had a problem, however I did install a cameo cyclone vent cover when I first got the winnie

We use a Blue Streak but use a 50/50 mix of water and SuperClean.

I did put a couple of capfuls of Pinesol in with the SuperClean and water, but this fall when we went to FL, we weren't getting anything out of it. Something had congealed in the bottom. Took it off the wall, cleaned everything out and started using just the 50/50 mix of SuperClean & water. No problems for the 3 months we were down there. I may try adding some Pinesol to a mix in a bottle and just let it set for a couple of months and see what happens.

Does the Blue Streak need to be "winterized?"

For winterization you just disconnect the hose to the reservoir and and empty the reservoir
