How to Unclog a RV Toilet

by Patrick Cameron

You bought your RV so that you could have a home away from home, one with all the comforts including a tidy little bathroom. But, because RV toilets use so little water in the flush, it's not uncommon for the toilet to become clogged. Unclogging an RV toilet is generally a relatively simple matter and doesn't require any special tools or plumbing know-how.


Find an appropriate stick. If you're in a campground or near the woods, you should be able to get your hands on a tree branch. A stick with a blunt end on it is best.


Snake the stick down through the toilet drain, pushing the clog out in to the holding tank.


Run water from the toilet down in to the holding tank. This will flush the pipe clean and also remove any extras from the stick.


  • If a stick doesn't do the trick, you can find toilet clog chemicals both online and at any RV dealer.
  • If chemicals don't do the job, you might try a pipe snake.
