Drained the black tank and then drained the Grey tank both tanks empty. Hit the road for home and not long into the trip we get a bad sewer type smell coming into the coach.

We have had this problem a few times before as well but never really found a solution to fix it. I replaced the roof top air vent with the whirly type hoping that would work but we are still having the issues.

Any good idea's other then nose plugs?

Thanks Much
Hey Folks,

Just an update. I found the source of the smell we had coming into the coach. After trying several different fix's provided by the helpful users here that didn't seem to help too much. I decided to pull apart water cabinet and see if the black pipe was cracked or leaking.

Well sure enough, the black PVC pipe had a hairline crack on the underside of the pipe. I replaced all the black pipe with new parts and even put in a new sewer gate valve and I am happy to report that it seems to have corrected the issue of the smell coming into the coach.

I want to thank everybody for there very helpful suggestions. Happy Trails..

hmmm, inventive but maybe needs more discussion... the oil will not be easily flushed away, it will stick there, attracting particles and form a black ring over time...

Yes, but no one sees the ring around the tank! I wonder what it does for level sensor accuracy? I guess you have to flush a squirt of Dawn detergent every so often to break up the oil scum.
