If the OP is hooked up to city water and the water hose is in the sun, that sun heated water could be getting to the toilet.

Hmmm now there's a thought......perhaps rescuing the danglies.

To much chemical treatment in the tank?

OP would have to pump allot of water into that black tank to get it up to "steaming".

How often do you drain the tank? If it was a fresh water issue, wouldn't the bowl water be hot too?

No city water, out in the bush. Not tank heaters, 65 degrees outside, no furnace on inside. Will go underneath soon, just need time to do it

Probably an orbital power station misaligned, pumping microwaves into your tank.

If it's 65 outside why would the furnace need to run?

This does not make sense, suspect leg-pulling going on here.

I found this about septic tanks.

"Bacteria do generate heat when they digest organic material, as is most easily seen in compost piles. Those piles can get really hot – 130 degrees Fahrenheit is not unusual."

Not sure if it applies to an RV Black Tank. Maybe it depends on how long stuff has been in there?

Lets say it is 100 degrees. The water hose hook up, HOW can it get hotter than that 100 degrees? If so, then how come the Sink Faucets do not bellow steam and be hot? Doug
