Holding Tank Questions

I'm totally new to your world and one of my main concerns is waste management(sound like a politician).

I plan on camping mainly weelends close to my home in Pittsburgh. Please tell me how you keep your TTs smelling fresh and clean. We plan on using the dumper(for lack of better words), but are scared to death about cleaning, maintenance, and sanitation.(Watched the movie RV)

What products do you use(for what particular purpose). How often do you clean the tanks. Do you backflush and how? I just don't want my trailer smelling like a diarrhea ward at the local clinic.

Please be specific as I have no clue as to what is going on here. Actually, I've been dropping a deuce for many years now, but what about the aftermath? I suffering from holdingtankinoia????

Thanks in Advance
