Unique Black Tank sensor cleaner

About every 15 months, I get frustrated with my Black tank sensors readings when I know I'm not nearly a full as is says. I've used this product to clean my Blank Tank sensors and it seems to do a decent job. Normally I would add 3-5 gallons of water to the tank and add my tank chemicals but we won't be going anywhere for about 2 months because it's hotter than hot. Since the tank is clean and with this heat does it matter if I leave them empty? Also my fresh water tank is 2/3 full, I'm thinking I'll empty it and go through the sanitizing process when we're closer to getting out again. Interested in people thoughts.

I'm sure this will be a HUGE torment to the slow kids at school.

I'm attuning them to the classics.

They are taking it far better than I expected.

Well even I know it is not called What.. So it has to be Who, or I don't know? Unless it is some Unique name? Not sure the OP knows What it is called either that why he said it was unique

Dawn dish soap

We start a trip with 1 cup of Dawn dish soap in both the gray and black water tanks. The sloshing around while driving keeps the sensors clean and the odor away and it doesn’t foam up like other dish soaps.
We only use about 1/2 cup in the black water tank between tank empties while on the road, then a full cup once back home. No odor and ready to go for the next trip. Haven’t used deodorizer or tank cleaners in years.

You "Should" dump your fresh water tank. I don't always, but it's advised.

My black water tank never reads correctly. The toilet is not great at getting the RV paper into the tank. Going to have to buy a flush hose. I have gotten pretty good at dumping at home.
