It works better than anything I've found .
I got it in a RV store in Quartsite. Wish I had picked up a few. I've never seen it sold here in Canada.

Give this site a try. I used to buy from Curtis but moved to BC but there are dealers all over. Have seen it in Ace Hardware in the U.S.

I purchased and used both the cleaner and treatment. I ran the cleaner in my gray and black water. Then a couple scoops in each tank... No issues this last trip and travelled up and down lots of hills.

So happy we tried this stuff.

I went through 2 containers of Happy Camper and I found no difference between it and liquid Ridex. They both still smelled the same. Just say'n.

Air Admittance Valves (AAV)..........(those devices in the picture) allow air to be drawn into sink/shower drains lines when dumping waste tank.
They are installed downstream of the sink/shower 'P' traps.
That way the negative pressure that would exist on drain line is prevented.....thus the 'P' traps do not get sucked dry

They do NOT prevent 'P' traps from loosing water level due to sloshing about while in transit.

A sink/shower drain stopper will help keep odors from coming back thru 'P' trap when they lose water. Water loss is from the rocking/rolling/sloshing going on and atmospheric pressure changes.
A little water back into sink/shower drain and odor gone due to the 'vapor barrier' water provides.

AAVs need changed out when there is stink coming from under sink cabinet.
NOT when the odor is coming back up thru the sink/shower drain.
