black tank

Picked up one of those flexible black tank cleaners that goes on the end of a hose (Camco). I first dump the poop soup then stick this thing into the tank until I hit bottom and the little brass spinner cleans the walls of the tank (I think) and sometimes make the LED light show that my tank is empty.

No chemicals, no rotating vent extensions and no smell or climbing on the roof

The blue stuff must be doing what the label says. It lubricates the seals!

No seal issues. No stink.

At 14 bucks for 32 treatments, if I dump every 4 or 5 days, thats about 10 cents a day.

I think I'll stay with what works.

OK , I will wait for your post on " how to change dump valves "

I changed the dump valve on my first moho just after I bought it. Was easy. The prev owner never used blue stuff. 10 more yrs no problems. Next moho, 7 yrs old, 10 more yrs, no problems, I dont expect i will need to change one again, but I know how.

The key is getting the formaldehyde-free blue stuff. Lubes the seals, does not eat them.

I'll let you post the "how to". You will have mor experience.

we started getting what I thought was a black water smell in our 2003 Intruige and what it turned out to be was the trap at the washer and dryer. We had not used it for quite awhile and the water in the trap evaporated and once in awhile the smell was bad. So once in awhile start the washer get some water in it go to spin good for another six months. Hope this will help some one. Happy New year and as Roy would say happy trails to all... Dues Paid
