PetesRV.com expert, Randy Murray provides a step-by-step overview on how to empty your RV holding tanks.
As Randy explains, with the black holding tank, we want to keep it closed as long as possible to allow the chemicals to break down the solids, and toilet paper inside the tank. Over time, the solids and toilet paper will build up more head pressure, so when you go to dump the tanks, it will evacuate much better.
Sidenote: When going camping, it’s recommended we bring RV toilet paper vs traditional toilet paper. The RV toilet paper tends to break down quicker than traditional toilet paper while in the holding tanks.
