Hubby used a hand snake, thinks he got it unclogged (apparently my neice didn't know that you can't put anything but toilet paper & waste in there and was putting trash like Q-tips and such) we bought some chemicals & wanted to buy the flexible hose sprayer thing but they were out.

There is an adaptor that you can buy that you can attach to your black water outlet that has a hose adapter to it but be sure your at a dump area then attach a hose to it and turn on the water for a mimit or so then let it drain keep this up until you get clear water out.
Juat a thought.

As a young idiot, I tied 3 cherry bombs together, lit the fuse, and threw them. OK, that was stupid, but two went off sending the thrid back to me. Fortunately, the third exploded before it reached me, but I cleared out all my own clogs!!! Never tried that trick again.

When this happened to me, I sent the kids out for a long stick. Worked like a champ! When done, I chased the kids around the campsite with it, great fun!

Sticks

We used to have a Honey motorhome and they punched the hole for the toilet right over the 'shelf' in the tank. I had to use a stick EVERY TIME we used the motothome to push dreaded the 'pyramid of poo' off the shelf and into the tank. Very bad design.

There are plenty of other reasons that Honey went out of business.

I may have chased the kids a bit

Yah, I'm not too happy with the angled design... it makes no sense. Maybe they were thinking that it would help with odor control or maybe there is some other system that the tank needed to go around??? Either way its preventing gravity from doing its job! lol Hopefully we won't have anymore issues, although we are taking a new to camping person out with us for T-day. Of course I will explain what goes in the toilet, hopefully she listens!

after using the toilet i fill the bowl full of water before flushing then open the flush valve and you get same rush of water you get when you open the dump valve . never get the dreaded pyramid either. has always worked great for us

I typically add a bunch of water to the bowl BEFORE adding any solid waste - that way there's fewer skid marks to deal with in the bowl. When flushing after a solid deposit I use the handy sprayer to make sure the bowl and the seal are clean - this also ensures that enough water is added to the tank to keep things working well.

I think that may be part of our problem. Our toilet isn't holding water.

if your toilet is not holding water doesn't that cause odors? have you tried cleaning the seal with a brush?

Does it ever! lol Hubby has tried cleaning it, then he put vasoline on it and it worked but my dad said that would catch the toilet paper when we flush so he wiped it off. Going to try the mineral oil but when we went to buy it they were out.

is it the kind that looks like a ball rotating when it opens? if so try Johnsons furniture polish. if it is the other kind that slides to the side make sure the grove is clean.
