If someone has already mentioned this, I apologize for the repeat. The one thing we would add is that we fill the black tank about halfway before adding the ice and will add laundry soap to agitate on the way home, then dump again before storing. The "washing" on the way home does a great job.

I would hate to be in line behind the OP at a Dump Station.

When I bought my current mh, the black water tank was very dirty and smelly. Went to Dollar General store, bought a bottle of their version of liquid plumber, put a few gallons of water in tank, put in bottle of cleaner, let it sit overnight, drive to next stop and dump tank. Works wonders.

Just to clarify it is Calgon or Raindrops water softener not fabric softener. Not always easy to find in your local store but is available on Amazon.

If you are concerned about black tank build up use Happy Camper Extreme Cleaner as directed. Then use Happy Camper Holding Tank Treatment as directed to maintain black tank function. Cheaper and more effective than any other, commercial or homebrew (GEO method).
