Great information...I am so happy to have had this forum recommended to me, thinking we would be lost without it!
We are definately going to look into the sewer vents and will likely work our way through all the additive recommendations! Thank you all for the advice!

After many years of RVing and trying all sorts of stuff for the tank, we tried a product called 5 Star Happy Camper. We have been using it for at least the last 6 or 7 years and it WORKS! I don't think there are any stores that carry it as it seems to be available only on the internet. I highly recommend it.

This is what we have used for over 10 years and it works great.
get a empty plastic gallon jug and add the following. Recipe
1 Cup of Pine Sol
1 Cup of houshold Ammonia
1 Cup of Fabric Softner. (snuggle or any other brand)
8 oz of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda.
Put it all in Empty Gallon Jug and add water to fill Jug.
Shake well and add one cup to each empty tank pour some down each drain. as tanks get half full add another cup. It stops Odors, Lubricates and cleans tanks and valves.
It works great for us and we have never had any smell or stink even when dry camping for two weeks in Death Valley when it was hot. That should take care of the problem.

You guy's are awesome! I'm having a problem getting my black tank to drain, but after reading your comments I realize that I'm draining it to often. Let her fill up and use PLENTY of water. Our family uses a product called Bio-Pak made by Wallex. I thought it was doing the job by liquifying waste and used an enzyme to control odor. Now I'm not so sure. I'll research the Geo-method and see if I get any results. What do I do if I'm unable to get it to drain? Thanks in advance, Cowboy

The first thing I would do if you have a black tank flush is hook up a hose and let it go for about 10 minutes. If not, Take a hose and flush out the tank from the toilet. Make sure the drain is open. Always make sure the black tank is at least 1/2 full and step on the pedal for about 2 - 3 minutes before dumping to add water.

You could also add 10 gal. of water, ice and dish washing soap to the tank and drive to the next campground and then dump. This should loosen up a lot of the blockage.

What we use and like is Unique RV Digest It. I've never used anything that will liquify the content of the black tank like this stuff does. You can check it out at uniquedistributing.com JMHO

If your tank is properly vented, you should get no odor.
