How do I care for my RV waste tanks?

Cleaning It Out

If your black tank has solid deposits in the bottom, it diminshes the total capacity of the tank (and smells even worse than usual!) Before going to the RV specialist to have the tank removed and cleaned, try this:
Dump a 5 lb bag of CRUSHED ice down the toilet. Add a little bit of water and go for a drive. The ice will act as an abrasive and may save you a costly tank removal!
