Didn't really surprise me. And I already had expected the "just use water and soak it" theory.

Trucks kind of expect to have people in them when they are moving and so are designed to make the people happy. ;-) And trailers are not supposed to have people in them so they don't worry. So they do get a slightly "crazier" ride.
Now I know that I have a situation where I can dump when home and have had some build up that I noticed. Putting a couple inches of my potable water in the black water tank and some dish soap (He did skip the dish soap) and drive normally for 8 hours home and then let it sit till morning when I start dealing with the fact I am home with the camper and the water that comes out is pretty dirty, and when I look the buildup is gone. I think the only reason I would use ice is if I had left over and was disposing of it.
