Hydrogen Peroxide will kill germs when used right out of the bottle. Just spray on and wipe off (if needed, like counter tops).

Nicer on the skin and nose than bleach or clorine.

Yes. It's a high powered, high concentrated form of non-pathogenic bacteria. In water with any organic material, it will turn it to liquid over night. Using it will disolve any TP and any kind of organic material you can think of in either the grey or black tank.

This keeps the tank sensors clean so your tank level indicators are ways spot on. When you dump, no smell and NO solids. This is all guarenteed.

I used it on my dog when he got into a skunk this summer. After a few minutes of soaking him then a rinse, smell was totally gone. Of course safe for humans, pets, plants and the enviroment.

At 2 ounces for 40 gals and about 50 cents a tank, I am totally sold!

I have one more tip while I'm here. When your DW asks you to take out her case full of make-up and assorted beauty supplies before your next trip, I would strongly advise you don't forget!! That's all I got.

I'm betting you meant take it out TO the moho rather than take it out OF the moho.

I can not imagine why anyone would ever close a grey water valve. I mean cmon... this is for the most part sterilized water innundated with detergents and hot water. And now to the black tank. That tank is loaded with the perfect mix of water, chemicals and organic material. I mean, think about it, you have no problem dumping hundreds of pounds of manure on your yard and flowerbeds. Simply unhook your sewer hose, if you ever hooked it up in the first place, and drive to the nearest interstate rest stop where thousands of trucks have already dumped thousands of pounds of [moderator edit]. In fact, we never close our blank tank valve or gray valve. Spraying a single load of pee or doo-do on an interstate is NOT environmentally unfriendly. C'mon dudes...the whole process is ultimate recycling. What goes in your body has to come out. Let the animals do the next step.

Not sure the EPA would agree with you.

Wow. The strength of some memories. I have ridden bikes my entire life and I still remember the image of that dripping dangling cap as that camper went by me many, many years ago. He had a similar attitude to yours. I am sure that he has a strong memory of that day as well. You might not care about what you are doing, but someday you might cross paths with someone who does. "Do unto others..........".

As for the bleach mixture... is the stuff in my bottle impotent 24 hours after I mix it?

Thanks

No it's fine since it is in a bottle with a sprayer or lid sealing it from the air.

Wow! Raw sewage is not something that should be dumped anywhere but in a designated sewage dump station. Gray water while not as bad as black still contains bacteria and should also be dumped in the appropriate manner. Seriously, I hope you were just trying to be funny.
