Fill the tank a couple of times to flush it out.
Fill it half way, add some chems and drive around to slosh it around for a good half hour or so. See if that helps.

Might be a venting issue. Might want to replace your standard vent with an xtreme vent. Have a look at the link Xtreme Vents

And for good measure throw in 50 lbs of ice before the drive.

Also consider adding a few pounds of ice when you do this. It helps break up the solids.

And put water in all of your p-traps to stop stink from coming in from tanks.
