Is the vent stack plugged/blocked in any way?

If it's a new camper, I would either asked the dealer or let them fix it if there is a problem.
Otherwise, -- myself, I would probably climb up on the roof and remove the cover from the stack and run water down. If it's open I would think it would run thru to the tank. If plugged it will run over onto the roof when the pipe gets full.
Maybe one of our plumber members will chime in and correct me, or, OK my explanation.

What Lloyd has suggested should work.

Depending on how you use the tank, you may have a mound of solids built up at the black tank/toilet drain connection blocking the flow. Have you used the black tank with the black tank drain valve left open?

Be carefull some roofs are only 1/4 " and you should only walk on roof rafters.

When you pull the vent cap off, check to be sure the vent pipe is not so long that it is tight against the cap.

gramma3, i had the same problem with a previous trailer. It was just as Stan said. the toilet emptied onto the sloped edge of the tank and had little clearance. I found advise on another forum to solve the problem. Remove the toilet and check the length of the drain pipe, i had to shorten mine a couple of inches and it solved the problem.
Just speaking from my experience, hope this helps.
Peter

I suspect it might be the same issue we had with our 2013CF345 Patriot this summer, it was burping back at us initially and then evenutally plugged altogether.

turns out the toilet does not sit directly over the black water tank and therefore a pipe is installed with a 40 degree or so sweep between the toilet and the black tank.

We suspect the kids used excess toilet paper that then built up on one ofthe joints and was letting the majority flow past but causing a burp back.

Checked vent and other things first then it plugged altogether so I used a regular plunger and walla it cleared. No problems since.............

I'd check that before heading to the dealer...... good luck !

We had some ting similar in 2007 after we just purchased the Cruiser. The first trip nothing would go down fast or sat there. I used a plunger and freed it up. Did not think any thing more of till a bout six months later, and I was cleaninfg the black tank, and a white thing came out and stuck in the clear 90 degree elbow. Pulled it out and it was a styrofoam cup I thin someone puy it in the drain so nothing would have gotten dropped in there and no one removed it
