What’s In Your Black Tank?

In our early years we were approached by fellow truck campers on a regular basis who swore up and down about their favorite holding tank. “Hey man, our stuff doesn’t stink with Brand-X Black Tank Magic. You gotta try it!”

And we did. And then we tried something else. I bet our first few truck campers had a dozen holding tank treatments going. We later learned that you’re not supposed to change holding tank solutions all the time. For best results, the advice is to pick one and stink to it. I mean stick to it.

CAMCO TST Max Drop In Tablets

We eventually settled into using TST MAX Orange Drop-Ins. They work well, are readily available at Walmart, and seem reasonably priced at about $10 for 10. If necessary (hot weather, long stretch between dumps, etc.), we’ll use two, but most of the time one drop-in does the trick.

Organic Happy Camper Black Tank Treatment

At one point we also were happy with Happy Campers Organic RV Holding Tank Treatment. I think we would use that all the time if it were more readily available. I won’t say it turned our poo in poo-pouri, but it did the job extremely well.

This week’s Question of the Week is, “What brand of black tank treatment do you use, and why?

Without going into poo much detail, tell us which black tank treatment you use in your camper, and how well it works. We like the TST MAX Orange Drop-Ins, but are willing to bet there’s something better. After all, we don’t like no stinkin’ holding tanks!
