Sewer Clog

Getting ready to go camping I have noticed a clog right under the toilet, toilet paper is backed up right under toilet. What is the easiest way in getting this out? Anyone ever dealt with it before in their camper? Can you use a snake or liquid plumber? I noticed a few weeknds ago that my tank emptied mighty fast, now I know why. Any insight would be greatly appreciated...Thanks

Use your hose and blast it out. You need to make sure in the future that you are running water into the bowl before you are flushing. Using lots of water with each flush solves this problem. since the RV toilet does not have a tank; filling the bowl serves the same purpose.

they make wands which can be put into the toilet throught the flusj hole and they have a strong stream of water that will help clean and flush the insides. In my case it also cleans the sensors so I can judge water level accurately.

Yeah I have a 5 year old that likes to see how much toilet paper that he can use...so I do believe that you are right on the using more water issue. Thanks for the advice and I will run my hose in there and blast it out. Thanks
