I have a Sanicon system which is basically a garburator for you know what, so I wait till my tanks are almost full or we hit the road.

I recently spent some time with 'Daisy Flush' Representative: who professionally (for a nice fee) unclogs RV clogs: in holding tanks. {When} it's a serious clog, you call someone. He swears by NEVER leaving any valves open: except to flush, when near full. For many reasons he's witnessed over and over, again....

I also use a SaniCon macerator (12 years now). When I arrive at the campground, I connect my power cord, water hose and my SaniCon hose (less than 3 minutes). It's always connected and doesn't need to be flushed out when done, just cap the end and put it back in the bay. I open the grey and leave the black closed. I open the grey every time because I don't want to have to worry about overfilling the grey tank. I like long showers and we have both a washing machine and dishwasher.

I added an electric black tank valve with a switch inside the coach. I also added a switch for he SaniCon inside the coach, so I can dump when necessary. It's turned out to be very handy. About ten minutes before were ready to pull the slides in, I open and drain the black tank from inside the coach. Once the slides are in, I disconnect the SaniCon hose and cap it, disconnect the power cord and the water hose and I'm done, less than 3-4 minutes. Off I go.

We have the SaniCon system. I've found that it doesn't flow quickly enough and leaves the solids behind unless I also connect up the black tank flush. So far I've decided that I like the stinky slinky better.

What about when you are travelling and only staying for a day or two? Do you empty the black tank when it's only maybe a third full? Don't want to dump if it's not half - full. But do you want to travel with your black tank not empty??
