I have found that flushing the toilet with the Fantastic fan running in the bathroom will draw oder into the coach.

Are you putting water back in with toilet chemical? Boiling batteries smell like crap also.

Yes, leaving the fan on will also cause. Also I have determined that when you connect your drain to the sewer it is good to allow it to have a low spot (like a "P Trap" which will block the smell/gas from the sewer, even with the black tank valve closed.

On my Southwind the black tank vent is about 10" from the bathroom roof vent, a slight change in wind direction can get you to close that vent real quick.

Odor

The roof vent turned out to be our problem. However, the obstruction was not obvious at the top but where the Vent pipe met the tank. Ran a snake down there then flushed with water. Wife made sure water was running out the sewer pipe to assure vent was clear.

Our instructions tell us to NOT use Pine Sol, will damage the seals. I suggest reading the instruction for your system and use only approved products. Just saying...

"frazierdee".....A lot of the Monaco coaches came with the SaniCon macerator pump. If you have one, they're notorious for using a hose (the 3" one from the sewer outlet to the pump) that was permeable. The smell permeats through the hose and can drift into the bathroom if the system is located under the bathroom. The cure is to buy a length of high quality hose from Camping World and replace it.

We suffered for 3 yrs with odor that got even worse when I opened the driver window in town.

To stop the smell, get the smell out...............buy a Cyclone vent cap for the roof. This creates a slight negative pressure in the entire black water plumbing and whether the sink traps are dry, the toilet seal leaks or whatever, the smell is sucked out. (even with the drivers window open)

Have a fresh (good) day
