I have heard that Rid-X in the sewage tank works really good. Has anybody had any experience with this?

There is a thread on Rid-X somewhere. I called Rid-X and they said it had not been tested on Rv's. I'm going to give it a try, the only downside is that it takes a while to work.

Jerry any of the enzyme products like RidX will clean the tank interior, but not overnight. If you have a buildup problem these products will correct it. You may also use it after each emptying, but in hot weather a deodorant is also needed after 3-4 days. RidX, Rodac K57, and other enzyme products will not harm anything.

Yes, in both gray and black tanks. It consists of bacteria and enzymes which break down the contents of the tanks. "Safe for all pipes and plumbing". We break it down sizewise for the size of our tanks. The packaging says 5.25 oz per 500 gal, a 100 gallon holding tank would take about an ounce. There is another product out there, I think it is pure power. It's been on the market for about a year. Same idea, enzymes, same dosage, cost may be a little more, also works real good.

We use Rid-X at home and on the road. I works great both places. It cuts odor both places and keeps the septic tank functioning and the black tank clean.

You use rid-x in your holding tanks ?
I called rid-x they say they do not recomend it to be used in RV just wondering are you using it as a long period of time . I seen it is used for septic tanks .I was thinking if you leave it in your holding tanks what kind of damage it may cause on seals .hows yours holding up ?

Thomas], I called Rid-X and asked that question and I got transfered to "the lab". A man there said there was nothing in it that would hurt an RV holding tank. I asked about the shut-off valves and he said it would just keep them clean. I asked if they had tested it in rvs and he said no. I have heard of other people that said they have been using it a long time with good results.
