1999 Pacer-Flush problems

I have a '99 Pace Arrow 34N.
For some reason when we use the head and flush the TP plugs the downspout.
I have looked down the discusting thing' with a flashlight' trying to see the path but it appears there is a 90 degree elbow or a P trap, can't tell.
My other Pacer had a straight drop and relyed on the seal to keep the smell down.
It appears that the 50 gal. holding tanks were replaced at sometime or the other, I have no paperwork. All I know is they replaced the 50s with 25 gal tanks and built a 2x4 frame to hold them up.
Camping World quoted me the price of a new coach to correct the tanks, and they would not commit to why things plug up.
When we travel the first thing we load is the plunger.
Anyone have a problem like this??

Hi larrygrandpa,
Sorry to hear of your flushing concerns, wondering how long you have had this problem. Every since you owned it? That sounds like a very unusual black tank configuration.

John,
I bought the rig used and they would not let me make a deposit so I could test it.
I found the Pace Arrow spec's on the mfgr. site-it said the rig came with 50 gal. tanks, black and grey.
It just is a pain to deal with.

I always believe the factory stock set up should be used. No idea why someone would change out the black tank with 2 tanks. I would try some MH wrecking yards, maybe a used stock set up can be obtained.

[QUOTE=larrygrandpa;752607]John,

******************************************** Who is it that you were dealing with that would not let you test it ? Such an expensive lesson. The best option would of course try and replace with the original design 50 gal tanks. Good luck,

The stock system would have no more than a 45 degree bend in it and usually are a straight drop. If yours has been modified and a 90 added, well, that's the problem. Best I can suggest is to replace the tank with the original (not terribly expensive if you can DIY) or modify the existing tank with a new hole so that the waste can drop straight in. But since you probably have to remove the tank to do that anyway, may as well replace it.
