Like I said before, nothing, zip, nada. Except a regular fresh water flush. Try it, you save a bunch of money over the years.

I keep waiting for them to send my commission check!

Nope, no connection, but as you can tell I think it's a great product!

Hmmm, do you think I could charge them for using my name?

I've been using Pinesol. About a cup after I clean and that's for a 50gal tank.

We only use some when it's going to be parked at the house for a while. Then we pour a little bit of that orange stuff on sale at Wallyworld into both tanks. I can't remember the name, but the bottle's a year or two old & in the back of the under sink storage. It keeps the coach from smelling funky if the water in the traps, or in the commode evaporate. And that can happen in a week or so in this central Texas summer heat.

In 20 plus years of maintaining holding tanks we must have tried them all. Happy Camper is the winner.

Agree. If you can smell anything from your tank, whether a bad smell or a deodorant smell, something is wrong with your tank and/or the ventilation system.

Not necessarily. If wind is blowing the right (or wrong) way, the fumes from your black tank roof vent can get into your RV.

Besides, even if something is wrong with your tank venting system, I'm going to kill those odors first before I kill myself schlepping around looking for the "problem".

And those of you who insist on telling us "I've been doing such-and-such for XX years" -- spare me! You might have been doing it wrong all those years.

I have used a Xtreme Vent for over 12 years and it stops any fumes from wind getting into the RV.
That problem is fixed.

Some of us with experience have been doing it right.

X2! The Xtreme Vent (or the Camco equivalent) solves the problems, and pays for itself many times over. In addition to the savings, not having to purchase and store chemicals is one less thing to clog up your cabinets and your life.

When a friend first told me he doesn't use chemicals I too was skeptical, but a dozen
years later I am a happy convert. I have a whole gallon of holding tank chemical that I
have had in my garage now for ten years. I have no use for it any more.

Try it, what have you got to lose but your chemical addiction?

So my thought, and it doesn't run deep, is this... even if you don't have odor because of wing ding vents or whatever reason - why would you want to have 50 or more gallons of stink sitting below you when a little Happy Campers would equalize what's in there.... unless yours doesn't stink in the first place - it's a stinking pool of excrement. A little powder that cleans and freshens the bowl when you mix it every time you dump and goes on to kill the order causing bacteria and dissolve the best of TP is worth the money. Just my thinking on the stinking. If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it - does it still make a sound???
