You will have to explain that one as they are always a near vertical drop into the back tank. In simple terms when you depress the lever it is dropping into the tank so unless your tank is full or something is obstructing the opening it is hard to imagine what is happening. Please state your specific model number so someone may help you.

This may be related to your other post about the valves leaking!
If your the second owner the previous owner may have either used with the black valve open while connected to sewer, which BTW should NEVER be done, or it has sat unused for a while with stuff in the black tank & the liquid has dried out leaving a big pile of hardened poop which will be a PITA to get out of the tank, lots of water, soap & repeated rinsing/draining.

closed tank valve 25-35 gallons of water with dishwasher soap in the tank , dump it as soon as you get in the park. 1/2 full tank . every flush with paper needs to be at a min 1/2 full bowl of water . Don't use house type toilet paper , it doesn't break down fast enough in water. I like to dump my tanks when they get over half full , then connect the tank flush for 5 mins. I am sure you have heard and practiced these methods but they all help in avoiding a chit pile of problems.

As long as the TP states it's "septic safe" on the package & not a bazillion plies it should be fine to use in a RV. Been full-time 10 years & have never bought "RV" TP (DW hates the stuff), they've gave us a package when we bought the last 2 5th wheels, but never paid for any & have never had issues with black tanks or plumbing from using regular TP. The secret is use plenty of water per flush especially when using paper.
If your toilet plumbing has 2 90 degree bends I'd guess there's dried solids between the bends, a hose with a spray end down through the toilet, don't use your drinking water hose, should rinse it out then rinse the black tank thourghly.
