How Do I Stop My RV's Toilet From Getting Clogged?

How to Prevent Your RV’s Toilet From Getting Clogged

How to Prevent Your RV’s Toilet From Getting Clogged

I have a 2007 holiday rambler savoy and I have a problem with my toilet backing up after you use the restroom I use 2 ply dissolving toilet paper. I don't know what the problem is.

ANSWER There are three rules to follow to prevent clogs in an RV toilet.

1. Flush often while sitting on the toilet, water is an RV toilets friend.

2. Do not use an excessive amount of toilet paper. If you do have to use a lot of toilet paper do not try to flush it all at once.

3. Always flush twice after using the RV Toilet, the more water the better.

I would like to tell you that all RV waste plumbing systems are designed perfectly, but they are not. Some RV Manufacturers put the toilets right over the black water holding tank so that gravity helps dispose of the toilet waste. Other manufacturers due to floor plans etc. have to direct the waste through pipes that take a more circuitous route to the Black Water Holding Tank. In those cases, they depend on water pressure to get the waste to its ultimate destination. So the less waste you try to get through the toilet at one time; the better chance you have of not clogging up the toilet.

There is a lot more information on how to prevent the toilet and Black Water Holding tank from clogging up; in the answer, I gave to this question: What Can We Do To Keep Our RVs Black Water Holding Tank From Clogging Up?
