Fresh drop

My GF's mom, who has Rv'ed a whole lot more than us, swears by "Fresh Drop". It's a potty smell killer. Any negatives to it's use? Did a search of this
site, but nothing came up.

I swear by Happy Camper. One ounce (about 61 cents) treats 40 gallons of black tank. No odor, breaks down and liquifies waste. This product does not try to mask black tank odor, it eliminates it by promoting aerobic bacteria that kills odor causing anaerobic bacteria.

Been using Happy Camper for about 2 months now. Very satisfied. No one complaining of bad smell when the john is flushed. Not familiar with Fresh Drop so I can't comment on it.

We only use the Thetfort stuff from Walmart. Best stuff on the planet, and I only buy the one with formaldehyde. Works the best and its the greenest around. It goes by the name of Campaign-Chem. Red Green loves it also!

Water. That's all you need is to use WATER and not skimp when using it. But if you feel better buying something that isn't necessary, go ahead. Since water is included when we pull into an RV Park, why spend extra money on something that isn't needed?

We too only use water. We are in the MH at least 5 months each year for the past 12 years, and have only used lots of water.

X3 It always amazes me how people are anxious to spend $ on totally unneeded products.

If you are getting a smell when flushing you are not using enough water or you have the bath fan on.

The waste system is sealed except for the roof vents.
If you have any odor that isn't getting into the RV from the roof vent or out of the toilet when you flush with an exhaust fan running, you have a problem that needs to be addressed.

We have used only water for 11 full timing years. No odor, no problems.
