Rear Bathroom Smell

I have a 2012 Adventure with a rear bathroom, I have had it in for warranty work to try and correct this problem to no success. If you open one of the drawers to the cabinet or stand by the stool, there is a strong black tank order. Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you correct it?

Not sure if this is Your issue...but Tours with the rear bath use a flexible hose from the electric toilet to the black tank...it allowed oders to escape...Winnebago has been replacing the hose with PVC pipe.

It sounds like a stuck vent check valve. Some mfgs install a vent stack in a cabinet near the stool, usually a foot or so off the floor. On top of that pipe is a check valve. When you dump the tank, it allows air to flow into the tank to decrease vacuum. If this valve sticks open, then you will get that odor. There are other causes of course, but I would check that first.

Did they check for possible cuts in the top of the tank? I have read of that happening. I hope you can get it fixed.

Put a "Venturi Vent" on your outside tank vent and problem will go away. less than $20.00 at Camping World.
