As some of you know, last night we were in a panic with black water not draining and added chemical and 2 gal. water only served to fill up potty to rim - yikes! As I am a cancer pt on chemo, this is a very bad problem to have. Thanks to all those who came to my rescue with great suggestions and commiseration. I am happy to report that one of the suggestions worked on my '97 Winnebago Brave. I had my son get a 3' length of stiff, but bendable hose and jam around in the toilet after opening the flapper. On 4th jab, the paper blockage cleared and water went right on down. What a relief! I am saving that length of hose just-in-case ever have problem again. Will also make certain plenty of water is used with each flush. I will chauk this up to being a newbie. Well, I "only" have to stay quarentined like this until the end of March '07, so you folks may hear from me again. But lets hope it is to share a tip and not another plea for help. Regards & Happy Travelling

This is very odd, but last night when I went on and you folks helped solve my problem, it listed me as "ppillow, Houston, TX, New Member" - now it is using my "Public Name" and the forum screen looks different even though I am in "Open Roads Forum, Class A Motorhomes" just like last night. Gees whiz, I must be "green" What did I do differentl, Hmmmm?

I saw your post about the blockage on another forum under the name ppillow. I haven't seen it here. Maybe that is why the difference.

I made the stiff hose suggest on the other forum. Glad it worked for you.

You can now join the club we all belong to, the Dumping Problem Club.

Here's another dumping tip. Don't wear your good shoes when dumping.

I have found iRV2 a better forum for problem solving than rv.net.

Good luck and I know you're health will be improving.

-Tom

I had a similar problem a few months back. I found out a guest was using those aloe filled sheets that don't disolve, at least not in our lifetime. And they seem to float up to the bottom of the drop tube in the toilet. It took a bent coat hanger to pull them out, and I don't want to go through that again. Now we use only the special RV paper or the single ply Scott paper.
