The water and your contributions flow down a tube and into your tank, whatever size it may be. Water you use in the shower or sinks goes into a separate holding tank for RV use. All the waste water stays in the trailer holding tank until you open the corresponding valve to dump it. This is what RV septic systems do.
How does RV septic work?
RV septic tanks are the part of your RVs plumbing system. They hold the waste water that goes down your sinks, toilet, and shower. Waste tanks allow an RV to be self-contained, storing gray water and black water until it can be dumped at an appropriate sewer connection.
Can you hook an RV up to a septic tank?
The short answer is that yes, it is possible to connect your RV into your septic tank, but you need to make sure that you do it correctly.
Why does my black water tank reads full when empty?
When RV holding tank sensors incorrectly read full, it is typically due to residue build-up connecting the sensors. This can be cleaned off with standard anti-grease detergent and or a chemical or enzyme based holding tank digestant treatment.
How do you poop in an RV toilet?
Fill your RV toilet bowl with water before using it to help waste flow down easily. Keep several inches of water in the bowl at all times (unless driving) to block odors. Hold the flush pedal down for 10 seconds to help hydrate the black tank.
Can I put bleach in my RV black tank?
Avoid using bleach or antifreeze for your deep clean, as both of these can dry out rubber seals and ultimately ruin your sewage system. At the very least, you should do a deep clean after each trip, as you wont want to store your RV with wastewater in the tanks.
