Keep those waste tanks clean:
We have found Original Dawn Dishwashing liquid to work for us as both full-timer and part-time Rvers.
This process may not work as well with those who do not move their rig very often.
Before we leave the campsite, we drain our tanks, close the drain valves and add ¼ cup of ORIGINAL Dawn dishwashing soap to 2 gallons of water.
After our arrival at the new campsite, we drain the sludge loosened from the inside of the tanks. We add water to the closed tanks after draining.
It is best to keep the tanks closed during use and drain every 3-4 days.
If a smell develops, we add one half cup of baking soda and dilute it with more water and let it stand overnght. PineSol will also help – but do not use too much (more than a cap full at a time) as it will cause your rubber seals to derogate.
I am lucky, my wife chooses to defecate in the campground comfort stations. She also places her toilet tissue in the closed wastebasket in our restroom. This wastebasket is emptied every 3-4 days. Why am I to argue with her way of doing things.
Rule #1 = If Momma’s not happy, no one is happy.
