It tickles me to see so many individuals using many different procedures to dump tanks . The Picking the hose up trick .....isn't that the same trick Robin Williams tried in the movie RV ??

I missed that movie.

What tickles me is the fact that so many think they can take the stink out of the tank with an additive.

I don't think chemicsls tske the stink out- at least not completely.
The chemical does cover or lessen or make it more bearable.
No matter how much chemical is in it you still have that gas station bathroom smell.
I believe the purpose of tank chemicals is to break down solids and toilet paper.
I put a capful in my slinky to cut down on the stink. It helps.

If you do this as suggested,

you will have:
a clean black tank and valve.
a clean slinky.
no contamination of grey tank.
and the procedure is quick and easy so you don't hold up those who are waiting to dump.
