Let me add a few more thoughts.
1.  Avoid over filling the tank.  This is an excellent way to plug the vents.
2.  TP made for holding tanks is OK, the nice stuff from the grocery store is not.  The nice soft stuff will "pearl" and teach you how to clean the tank and any macerator pump.  This process is known as "pearl diving".
3.  A cup of vinegar a month will reduce the calcium build up in the hoses.  Pour it in the bowl and pump it into the hoses, let it stand overnight if possible.
