Which roof vent is for the black tank?

I want to install a swivel vent cover and there are 2 vents on either side of the roof. The schematics are unclear as to which is which. Appreciate!

Those swivel vent covers are not expensive, just install two. I did because both vents have the capability of delivering odors down into the coach when you have vents open in certain configurations.

On my coach, admittedly a lot different than yours the black pipe runs closest to where the toilet is installed and the grey tank closest to the shower.

And finally; taking a whiff is not actually a bad idea (unpleasant but revealing) the odors are fowl but strangely a bit different.

Of course that is irrellevant if you install two. Like I said, I did.

Well no. Many differing methods for black and grey tank management even some without any additives. All can work successfully. However odors can develope and dispersing them away from the stand pipe is an important part of the management plan.

The most successful system I used was a product that used enzymes (I guess that is the correct term) to neutralize and break down waste. It was colorless and odorless and effective. Cannot get it any longer so I went back to a "blue" product.

I studyed on it for a bit and found that blue stuff to be attacking my seals not to mention a waste of money everytime you dump, it has been 2 years now without (using household paper) using the blue stuff and no problems, just dump and flush good.

Never had a seal problem since 1957. Yep, never had to replace a toilet seal nor dump valve in all that time. I guess I'm doing something right with the methods and chemicals I'm using.

10+ years with this rig and still the same thing, no problems and the toilet seal is just fine as are the dump valves!
