With the exception of camper vans and small RVs, most RVs have a toilet in them. They can be a hassle to clean, especially when you are trying to enjoy your trip. Finding the best method that works for you can be tricky, but we’re going to highlight a few methods that may help.
Types of RV Toilets
RV Toilets will all clean the same way, but there are a few different types of RV toilets.
RV Water Tanks
Your RV bathroom connects to 3 different types of water tanks: Gray, Black and Freshwater. Your fresh water tank is the biggest and supplies fresh water for your sink, shower and toilet. Your gray and black tanks are proportionally sized to your freshwater tank.
An RV Freshwater tank allows you to carry fresh water for drinking and supply water to your sinks, toilet and shower. When you’re parked, you can attach a drinking safe water hose to an adaptor on your RV and run your water through that.
Gray Water Tank
The gray water tank stores the dirty water from your sink and showers. Be careful what you put down this tank as it is only designed for liquid. Anything other than liquid can easily clog your gray water tank.
Black Water Tank
The black tank is just for your toilet. The emptying pipes are 3 inches thick and can handle biological waste. Make sure you are using the correct toilet paper so it dissolves quickly and doesn;t get stuck in the black water tank.
