Black water system

I'm a newbie as y'all can tell, I dumped the black water tank, I have see through fittings on my stinky slinky so I seen water come through, the indication light said 2/3 full, I dumped the tank and the indication light still says 2/3.

Learn to live without those indicators they will nonstop be incorrect with debris constantly getting stuck on the sensors. You can try to use a wand and flush the tank.

Do you have a black tank flush? Mine was right by the city water connection. I'd try that if you do. You'll want to open the black tank valve and then connect your water run it for 20-30 min or so at full open. That should help.

Mine does the same thing if I don't regularly flush.

I don't have one 007matman, so I reckon I need to take a water hose in the TT and flush it out.

You could install one or just get a wand. I'm sure your black tank is under the toilet like mine is so the wand would probably be the easiest.

Installed the Horst Miracle Probes on my last camper and liked them enough that I installed them on my new camper last year before even taking it out on the first trip. They aren't perfect, but much more accurate. Occasionally my black tank will read 1/3 right after dumping, but usually clears within 30 minutes. Most of the time however, it reads empty right after dumping even if I don't do the flush right away.

Start using the Geo Method. Should help keep probes clean.

Additional, though pricey options for sensors that mount outside the tank are:
SensaTank: SensaTank RV100 Multi Tank Monitoring System with Field-Effect sensing

Garnet SeeLevel: https://www.garnetinstruments.com/rv-shop/

I have not used either... Saw postings about them, made note for future mods if I get too annoyed with the ones that came with the RV.
