Plumbing issues

This is our 3rd year as snowbirds. Havenít had any plumbing issues until lately. Now, for 3 weeks in a row, we have had a clogged toilet drain line. Everything else runs fine. It seems to be running when I open black line drain. Have you all experienced this and what did you do to fix or prevent? We use one of the Camco drain powders. We use septic safe tissue.

Plunging works for a few days, but...

Which 'line' is clogging?

Toilet TO black tank
Drain line FROM black tank

Toilet line.....build up of TP and/or Poop at bottom of line where it enters tank
LACK of water when flushing
Fill toilet bowl FULL before flushing and then hold toilet ball open for a few seconds to allow water to run
You will have to 'break-up' the clog with a *Stick, *flush wand dow thru toilet, *dumping buckets of HOT water down toilet *Etc

Drain line clog....
Could be cut out disc got left in tank during build and now is being pulled down into tank outlet blocking it. Removal of dump valve and then reach into tank to grab disc (IF valve is close to tank outlet)
Drain valve not fully opening

Tank vent clogged *nest inside pipe *pipe slipped down into tank etc
Would affect both toilet line and tank drain line.
Tank has to be fully vented for flow into & out of tank
Is it time for YOUR Medication or Mine?
