    FloridaFiverWhy didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    June 14Our black tank says 2/3 full even when we’ve emptied and flushed it. Is it possible to have a faulty sensor or do we have a blockage? If you think it’s blocked how do we fix it? TY

      SACnFrau June 14 RV tank sensors are notorious for being inaccurate. You can try tank flush, tank treatments, GEO method to help situation.

        Dan&Jo June 15 GEO, FBI, CIA or any other thing you try is going to be essentially useless. Sensors are a selling point that RV dealers extol as a WOW factor, in reality they usually are absolutely are NOT to be trusted. RVing 50+ years and have not found a sensor yet t...  more

      wannabervin June 14 Faulty sensors is probably the most common problem in RVing. Stuff gets stuck on them and then they read “full” even when the tank is empty— especially the black tank. You can buy heavy duty cleaner to put in the tank and then drive around a bit to slosh ...  more

        Dan&Jo June 15 Agreed. Even one small piece of rust will disable sensor.

      TheClearyClan June 14 I have a cleaning wand with a brass head that spins while spraying water. I dumped our black tank and put the wand down the toilet and sprayed the tank for about 15 minutes. I checked the level and it read empty. I then filled the toilet with water, dropp...  more

        Dan&Jo June 15 Exactly, I'm just surprised it waited until you got 2 gallons in it. lol

      Ray & Ann June 15 We have the wand and use Happy Camper in the black tank but each year when I sanitize the water system I run most of that bleached water into the black tank and it's the cleanest those sensors will be all year but that bleached water isn't good for the se...  more

      Bandit455 June 15 Yes, very possible. What is not possible is to keep these sensors clean and working accurately...

      FloridaFiver June 15 Thank you everyone. Our fifth wheel is only 7 months old and so far we’ve only used it a dozen times so I had a hard time believing we were plugged. I’m going to try some of your cleaning methods too just in case.

      Nick/Brenda June 15 Next time you get ready to leave house to go camping dump about 5-10 gallons of water down toilet and add a bag of ice or two then drive to campground. Ice/water will slosh around while driving and clean sensors.😉

      Suzan and Art June 15 The sensors get covered with gunk and don't work well.   You will get to know how often you have to dump and work it that way. Nick/Brenda's solution works and I've used it but the sensors only stay clean for a little while.

      JBM27 June 17 Put a bag of ice in your toile before you drive. It will slosh around and knock of any debris on the sensor.
