Do you leave your black tank flush valve open when hooked to campsite services?
. No, I leave it closed. Wonder if the flys enter thru the vent pipe?

To go nuclear, I'd open the black tank drain valve, put a pest bomb in the drain pipe and put the cap back on.

Why not just drop it down the vent pipe?

Last year was the first time ever in maybe 30 years of RVing that we had what we thought to be fruit flies all over the place. Next thing we noticed were translucent small flat larvae slithering up the sides of our toilet. Really creepy. Googled it and sewer flies was the answer. Bleach or very hot water poured down the toilet and drains. We decided on boiling hot water which did the trick. Killed the larvae,no more adults(flies). I had nightmares of sitting on the toilet and having giant, translucent, flesh eating worms crawling up the bowl from the black water tank looking for......

I think you would risk getting rid of the whole RV that way![emoticon]

I don't like using bug killer. Were I would have no trouble using a gallon of bleach.

What it took to get the drain flies out of the black and gray tank was to pour about quart of Pin-sol in the tank and fill with water. Let it set overnight, drain and flush. The little buggers were gone then.
