Heat and camper smells

Just thought I would mention that the heat will evaporate the water in the drain traps faster then usual. That allows the "air" in the grey tank to travel up and out, into the living space. Remember to run some water each week to keep the "P" traps full. And check the toilet. Make sure the slide valve is covered also.
