How Long Can You Go Before Emptying Holding Tanks???

LOL you guys are great. One thing I forgot to mention. Nobody mentioned RV antifreeze?? If your a dry camper in the middle of Arizona or Nevada in the winter it can get particularly cold around these parts at night this time of year. If you don't want to find yourself lugging a 40 gallon ice cube around, I personally think it's probably a good idea to pour plenty of RV antifreeze down into the abyss. I found some ice in my sewer hose the other morning.😦 I firm reminder things do freeze when the temperature drops below the freezing point of 32 f degrees❄️ only problem?? You cannot use toilet chemicals with RV antifreeze since the antifreeze will destroy the beneficial bacteria in the toilet chemicals. So there is another unique problem to figure out.

You can purchase the valve at any RV dealer's parts store.

I think I see what your talking about now.

That is the beauty of toilet chemicals. It neutralizes odors and destroy all solid waste in the tank. Never suffered from a poopy odor if you know what I mean. 🙈 In reality I have to dump my tanks every night so they will not freeze since temps have dropped to the upper 20's here at night lately. But I have been able to go quite a while without emptying the black water before and no problems. . Since most RViers do not generally fill the black as fast as the gray water, I could go quite a while in the desert before I would have to dump the tank.

Why would it be "yuk"... it's just cold/cool fresh water from the shower head prior to it getting warm/hot enough to take a warm/hot shower...

Why would it be "yuk" ??
