Toilet room exhaust

When using the toilet which is in its own little room/closet and running the fantastic fan on low when you flush some odor from the holding tank comes in. So I'm wondering has anyone put an exhaust fan on the vent pipe up on the roof to draw out so when you flush the odor doesn't come into the little toilet room? Do they even make such a thing?

I will often open a window if it's warm. When it's cold I open the door just as I flush. That seems to take care of pulling odors up from the black tank.

Turn the fan off while you flush

Turn off the fan when you flush is the easy solution. Restart after flushing.

The fan creates a negative pressure in the toilet room and it pulls the air back through the vent pipe and tank.

I hear ya you can just shut the fan, but if you could keep a negative pressure on the black tank you would never get even a small Oder at all. Course you wouldn't want to run that fan when you dump the tank cause you'd pull sewer gas into your tank.

They make one. I have one and it works great to pull the fumes down when we flush.

Adding a second fan to counteract the first fan? Sounds like a solution Congress would come up with!

Crack a window or tow.......

We leave the small kitchen window cracked all the time, so the fantastic ceiling fans, or pull stinky air out of the black tank when fans are running. We wait to turn on the bathroom fan till after the flush........then refresh the air in the bathroom......

I installed this fan on my 2004 Coachman. I would get odor all the time. After installing the Lil Stanker there was a huge improvement. We kept this exhaust fan on low continuously. I did have to put a new fan motor on the assembly after about 2 years, easy to do & picked it up at Radio Shack for under $10.
On our Winnebago we don't have this problem any more & we turn the fan on when we enter the bathroom.

Well, it's like a friend of mine always says whenever I complain "yeah, there's always something" His way of saying shut up and live with it.

We get that smell too for a few seconds but the vent fan works so well the smell is gone almost immediately.

Since changing to the nothing but water system years ago, there is not enough stink to get sucked into the room.

This will keep the "fumes" out of your tank if you want to use the fan while flushing. However, we turn the fan off to flush. Amazon.com: Camco 40595 RV Cyclone Sewer Plumbing Vent: Automotive

Many Walmarts carry them in the RV section.
