Add to black tank with 2 additional gallons before travelling!

Before traveling every day (or maybe first and second to last days)?

Dave.
Loblaws and some Metros.

Good luck.

I do it when I empty the tanks.

1 cup Calgon
diluted/dissolved in hot water.

If I am leaving and going back home I also put 1 cup laundry detergent and a few gallons of water too. The swishing around when moving will help clean and coat the tank. It will stay in during storage until the next outing.

Works really well.

This is not new and it is known as the Geo system. Lots of people use it and it works very well. One cup of powered water softner mixed in 1 gallon of warm water then 2 gallons of water in the black tank. Every two or three dumps and then add 1 cup of powered detergent mixed in 1 gallon of warm water follower by 2 gallons of water and off you go. It is cheaper the the black tank chems and it works just as good, if not better and no chems. Works for me!

Read the method link above.
I was thinking dishwashing detergent, even as I typed laundry detergent!

1 cup of laundry detergent doesn't seem quite as much as a cup of dishwashing liquid.
