Thanks Steve, I will definitely look into it.

Found a great product on the American Man Cavestores.american-man-cave.com/StoreFront.bok It is called Heavy Doody Poo-Pourri Air Freshner. You use it before you use it and it works great.

If you have a washer/dryer there is a good chance the smell is coming from the p-trap for the washer/dryer. They tend to used much less frequently and tend to dry out which then allows the "smell" to come through the trap. I'm not sure, but does your washer/dryer sit in the bathroom hallway with the bulk of the unit in the bathroom?

I was skeptical, when told about this stuff. I used it a couple of times and I am now a firm believer! This is another of the enzyme type holding tank treatments and will work on both black and gray tanks...

They even have a product called "Extreme clean" and it works on heavily abused holding tanks...

Are you sure it's the black tank and not the gray?

Been using Happy Camper for about two years now, it works well. Getting it into your black tank is a little different than others that I have used. If you pour it into the toilet bowl and let it sit for more than a few seconds, it will harden. The easiest way is to pour it into a bowl that's filled with water, and quickly swirl it around the bowl with a toilet brush before flushing it. This helps to clean the toilet brush at the same time. Another iRV2 member suggested this method and it works very well.

I know you changed the top thing on your vent pipe but is the vent pipe itself clear? There could be an obstruction down in the pipe. You could trickle some water down it and if its clear you will hear it going into the tank.

Update:
Reattached the upper bowl, and checked the lower gasket and resealed it. It helped considerably.
Did a mega-flush on the black tank for about an hour and noticed that after it was running clear after 30 minutes. Then whatever was stuck in the tank broke loose and some creeping death ran out. That may have been the nastiness that plagued this home since I bought it. And it probably wasn't even mine!!
Just drove to Fort Wilderness and NO STINKIES, thanks everyone!

One tip that we do and that is that after draining the black and grey tank and putting the unit away in storage I always add at least 5 gallons usually more like 10 gallons to each tank. I don;t ever want my tanks to dry out while in storage. Also driving around with some water in tanks helps keep and loosen everything that may be left in there.
