Once Again, the Black Tank

Early in March, I decided to take the toilet wand and literally rinse out the black tank in my RV. To properly do this, I brought it by my house, filled a 5 gallon container with hot water, dumped some Dawn, 20 Mule Team borax and Calvin into the black tank. Then I took the wand, stuck it down the toilet and rinsed.

Eventually it got to full. I meant to empty the tank but it started to rain. I took the trailer back to storage so I thought I’d empty the thing the next day. I put some Happy Campers in there, so it would be fine if I let it go a few days.

Then I got called into work. I worked for 12 days straight. Today, two weeks after my shift work ended, and four weeks after I rinsed the tank out hard, I remembered I had filled it. Oh boy.

The black tank has not stunk up the trailer. We have a 360 degree vent, and the toilet had been cleaned out anyway. I had cleaned it prior to this soak, and Happy Campers is a proven product.

I am interested to see what comes out. I have a feeling it’s going to be gross, but not too gross. I suspect the tank will be less dirty than it’s been in a long time. The materials I had put in the tank were nothing more than you would use in the laundry.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.

  1. The black tank produced almost no utterly disgusting product. After 30 seconds it was running virtually clear. I’m pleased at how it turned out. I need to go camping again!
