Thanks. I found a Drano product that includes a 58 cm spiked plastic wand. Going to try it out tomorrow after the gel hopefully does its thing. Cheers.

I believe the outlet is plugged. I have bought a Drano product that includes a spiked plastic flexible wand about 58 cms long. Will try it out tomorrow after the gel has had a go at the blockage.

Thanks. A good doze of Drano seems to have cured the problem. My lady says the TP we used was not proper RV type although I bought it at an RV dealership/

Use a good biological agent in your tank to break down the waste and TP. I'm currently using Happy Camper. I've also used RV Digiest-it, or other biological agents. Don't use anything with Formaldehyde.

I was just going to post a similar question only mine I believe is clogged up top.   I can see t paper stuck. I always thought the tube went straight down but not I think it curves in. Also what is that little mechanism that you can see below the flap.   Seems everything is stuck around that. Advice appreciated. Jon
