RV Holding Tank Travel Tips

In preparation for your trip:

Put 3 to 5 gallons of water in black and gray water tanks and add recommended chemicals. Flush hot water heater and check to see if your anode rod is in good condition.

While on your trip:

  • Always use single ply or biodegradable toilet paper
  • Allow black tank to fill to 3/4 full before flushing
  • When camping, keep black tank valve closed

When you get home:

  • Plan ahead and try to have black tank at least 1/2 full to allow for agitation recommended for thorough dumping upon return home
  • Just as in your clothes washer, moving water and agitation serve as the best cleaning process
