See when your drain and rinse water is clean.
BLACK TANKS 1 First, it’s a good idea to pre-charge the tank with about 12 l (3 gal) of water with your rinser if you have one. Otherwise, you can do it when adding the treatment. This extra water will wet the bottom of the tank so the waste can spread out and start to break down instead of being exposed to the air.
2 Fill your toilet with approximately 4 l (1 gal) of water, then sprinkle & stir one scoop of Happy Campers and IMMEDIATELY flush. For hot climates and tanks over 160 litres (40 gal), repeat the above and then add 8 l (2 gal) of water. IMPORTANT: Never add more than one scoop to approximately 4 l (1 gal) of water. Simply adding more water will improve your tank functions.
3 CAUTION: NEVER leave the black valve open. The liquid will drain away leaving you with a solid buildup in your tank that can be a costly repair job.
4 Keep the black tank valve closed until the tank is at least 2/3 full. (Dumping the tank when it is less than 2/3 full will not allow the tank to empty properly). Always drain the tank with the sprayer if your RV has one. If not, you can use the tank wand designed for cleaning and flushing the tank. 5 If your RV ends up with an odour after sitting a long time it’s likely a result of lack of oxygen. Bacteria like oxygen and after sitting still in the same spot for some time there isn’t enough shaking going on to keep the oxygen distributed though the holding tanks. Result: the bacterial fellows are unhappy, leaving the job half done. It helps to flush more often. If odours happen: Fill up the tank, then dump it. Now nearly fill the tank, add at least a half a cup of baking soda, and let the whole thing percolate for a couple of days, dump the tank and add Happy Campers per instructions.
6 You don’t need to use RV tissue with Happy Campers. Some that are highly rated and reasonably priced are Scott, Quilted Northern and Angel Soft. Not convinced? Take a square of what you want to try or compare, put it in a glass with water and see how long it takes to break up. Tissue should dissolve in five minutes.
7 Porti Potti’s & Cassettes: A simple way that works. Take a saltshaker or spice bottle, punch or drill about ten 3mm (1/8”) holes in the cap. Fill with Happy Campers. When using the toilet, sprinkle the waste and flush. Recirculating Toilets: us for help. If needed, contact
