In our 21, the toilet is right on top of the tank. You have access to the tank through the bottom of the toilet. I never had an issue with the probes but spent a fair amount of time getting the trailer ready for storage. I used a product called Camco Probe Cleaner in the tank and also a high powered water jet to clean the interior of the black tank which should have hit the sensors. Loren

Anyone use a GoPro on the end of their cleaning wand to verify they got the black tank squeaky clean?

Not me. As long as the gozinta exits on the goesouta pipe, I'm fine.

A potential cheap solution that I have had mixed results with on previous RVs is simply putting baking soda in the tank with water, let it soak for a while, then drain. Corrosion that can build up on the sensors is simply dissolved away!
Good Luck!

Now that's a reason for a perfectly sealed underwater case! Stopping short of the GoPro, an inspection camera would be suitable.

Reverse flush from below

We have been using one of these Valterra reverse flush fixtures and getting good results for the tanks being clean, not so much for the indicators though.
