The simple solution is just to use "Happy Camper" holding tank treatment. I have NEVER had any odor since we started using this several years ago!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

IMO the only thing that smells worse than the content of a black tank is the content of a black tank with the blue stuff added.

Update

I went out to the RV today. It a lot cooler today, even raining. No smell went I flushed the toilet. I drained and flush the tanks anyway. I did use a snake on the toilet pipe but didn't find anything. Thanks everybody for the help.

Get on the roof and locate the black tank vent. Remove top cover and stick a garden hose down and turn it on for 30 seconds to make sure there is no blockage.

Proliferation of anaerobic bacteria is what causes black tank odor. Happy Camper promotes an aerobic bacteria that kills anaerobic bacteria, and hence odor, and liquefies waste. One ounce per 40 gallons of black tank (about 53 cents) is all it takes to keep your black tank healthy and odor free.

You could also use a solar powered fan on your vent stack on the roof. It keeps a positive pressure. Here's a link.

Used this for years in more campers than I care, or can, remember. Never had an odor or problem with the tanks or valves.
