Do you put about 2-3 gals of water in the tank after dumping? Do you fill the bowl with water before using to poo? Do you keep your gate valve closed until dumping when on sewer??

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

X2, and do not leave the black water dump valve / termination valve open when you are at a campsite with sewer connection.

This is the best thing we have ever used. We keep it available and will occasionally cram it down in the toilet and give it a whirl just to make sure stuff is moving along out of there.

You are not clogging up any pipes by not using enough water. The tank is directly below or just to the side of the toilet. 3 ' at best. By not using enough water you are causing a POO PILE. The POO is building up and drying out. Not floating around and dissolving. When you dump the water goes away and leaves the pile behind. There chemical tablets that many use are not just for oder. They help dissolve. Just fill the bowl before use and add 3 gal of water after dumping your tank and your problems will go away. Remember, gate valve closed when on sewer.

Your photo shows a class A motor home. These often have a pipe to the toilet, unlike the type that drops straight down found in most trailers. In those it is even more important to use plenty of water to flush.

We are not full timers, just sayin', but the rule in our 5er is no poo in the potty and
we don't put the paper in there either....
