Black tank cleaner question

Green Gobbler Enzyme Drain Cleaner can this be used to clean your black tank and your grey tanks in your RV or is it too strong and will damage you tanks and tubing? I've tried about everything else to help clean my tank sensors but so far nothing seems to work. We use this product for our home drains and it really works well on those!

I would read the label, Your drains at home may be a different material. Your RV waste system is ABS plastic with rubber seals at the tank drains. Some enzyme cleaners take days to work.

Here's a video that I watched. It's a bit long, but in the end it pretty well covers restoring the tank sensors and how to keep them working. The company (Kleentank) in the video has made a business out of cleaning RV holding tanks. Might be worth a look.,st:0

Here are three screen grabs. Two (2) from their product webpage and one (1) from Amazon reviews. (search for amazon reviews yourself - - there are tons of them that mention rv's - some good - some bad)
See the highlighted areas.

I have been doing the RV thing for over 12 years and in all that time I have tried many different things to get the sensors to work properly. I don't even bother anymore. When the toilet burps it's time to drain it. I still run the turbo flusher but that's about it.
