Sometimes, even immediately after dumping your black tanks, the tank sensor panel can show that the black tank is full.

Why does this happen to your RV Holding Tank Sensors?
This is because your RV Holding tank is connected to the motion sensor panel with the help of 4 screw probes, each of which adds to the sensor rates. In the due course of time, waste can accumulate around these connections and send the wrong signal to your panel.
Confusing as it may sound, this actually happens due to one or more obstruction in the black tank. The obstruction can be caused by sludge, slime or even solid particles.
According to Randall Murray,
“This is generally caused by a build up of waste materials or anything that might have made its way down the toilet. These items can block the sensors preventing the correct read out”.
Here are our best ways to clearing your RV Holding Tank Sensors ASAP:
- RV Swivel Stick: Use it to spray out any obstruction
- Hot Water treatment: Flush the tank with hot water
- Water Treatment: Fill your tank till the full and let it rest for 1-2 hours. Flush it off after!
Make sure to clean your holding tanks periodically and use only RV Tissues in the toilet.
