In the past I have filled the tank 75 per cent full of water with a cup of pine sol in the tank. I then drove for 200 miles on curvy mountain road. I regularly put pine sol or sometimes simple green in the tank and fill it 75 per cent full and let it set for 2 days when I am leaving the coach for a weekend. My vent is not clogged up. I still occasionally get smells from my black tank. What do you suggest I fix.
I'm not sure if I mentioned before but FWIW, I decided this past season that I didn't want to wait til the vent cap mod to attempt to eliminate the sewer odors so after reading positive reviews of the Happy Campers Organic Treatment, I bought and treated the tanks. I was HIGHLY impressed and surprised to have no odors on my last trip when I tried it. There is NO WAY it was coincidental, when I tell you we had sewer odors on EVERY trip since we bought this MH. After treatment, they were gone for those 10 days, the stuff WORKS!!!
So why did I bother with this mod?
I dunno, I guess I didn't want to have to rely on this specific treatment/product and thought if the Siphon worked equally as well, in the long run, it'd be cheaper as the Happy Campers product isn't exactly cheap.
Anyhow, I mention it to you specifically cuz if you use THAT product instead of the PineSol or SimpleGreen, I think that might do a far better job as they recommend the same technique for extra smelly tanks.
Oh, one more thing, I just wanted to make another point, during this entire mod I was seeking the advice and tips from the makers of the 360* Siphon cap and I can't stress how AWESOME their customer service is/was. I'm almost annoyed that I won't be able to test this cap out til next Spring!!! LOL!
So a major thumbs up and THANK YOU to Bob & Greg if you guys see this!
