I put in some Calgon water softener and laundry soap before a road trip. Seems to help keep things cleaner.

OK Folks. Thanks for all your ideas. I plan to try the crushed ice and cleaner first - then hot water and dishwasher detergent.
Incidentally, we always put soapy water in the black water tank after we dump - did not prevent the problem.
Thanks again!

If you're looking for a good way to clean your black/gray tanks, you may want to check out this video:
RV QUICK TIP: Gray Tank & Sensor Cleaning - YouTube
And if you have the push-button style monitor panel that has small potentiometer screws just above each button, you can check out this video for how to calibrate it (which could help you identify if you're having a problem with a sensor):
HOW TO: Calibrate RV Tank Monitors - YouTube
Hopefully these will be helpful for someone.
