If you would like to call us for the fix over the phone please do and we will help you. Then after we have solved the problem you can post the step-by-step fix so that others can benefit from our experience. 719-237-7239

Slap My Buns & Call Me Done

Hooray, Poop Shot Through The Shoot!!!
Boy Am I Glad That Is Over!!!
I was able to borrow something like what Nitehawk recommended. A single gate valve and a clear 45 with a threaded hose hook up. It has been added to my wish list for stuff to have, Just In Case.
Thank God the Camp Host had the set up needed. Thank You Lee...
It took a while of back flushing over and over but we finally got the Burst of Suds from what I had put in the tank earlier. They have a flush hook up on the black tank, so I was able to do a number of fill and rinses.

Thank You So Much For All Of The Advice.

PS: I can't believe I would be so very happy to see "Poop" flowing through a clear fitting.

Final Update & Happy Ending

Again I want to thank the many here who offered support.
When the blockage was first cleared the black tank drained very slow.
After about a week with 2 scoops Happy Camper & a cup full of cheap liquid laundry detergent in the black tank with about 20 plus gallons of water, the tank is draining "full force".
If any Newbies (like me) are reading this the two most important lessons are;
Never Leave The Black Tank Open, & Lots Of Water Is The Key To A Healthy Black Tank.
I Am So Happy To See The Snow Melting, Hope Everyone Is Having A Great Sunday!!
