If it stinks after flushing, then you aren't using enough water and your seals aren't tight. Water, Water, Water, that is the answer. Yes, you'll have to dump more frequently, but if you are a park with FHU, what's the problem. Also, make sure you aren't running the bathroom exhaust fan when you flush, and put a rotating vane on the black tank vent.

I bought an RV to travel in comfort - hurrying across a park to find a bathroom is not my idea of comfort.

I have to laugh at this subject. I'm a full timer so my motorhome is the only bathroom I have and I use it to it's full extent.

Yesterday I used the bathroom in a store that my friend and I were shopping at. After I came out I commented to my friend (who is also a full timer with her husband) that I couldn't remember the last time I used a non-rv toilet.

When I'm working in my Breeze at home, instead of going in the house to "go", I use it.

One word of caution.....DO NOT run the vent fan when flushing...it will pull the fumes back up from the tank....wheeeee weeeee.

That's because your fan is running backwards.

Unless we are dry camping where there are local facilities, we do do in the MH. Good idea to turn the fan off when flushing. But then my do don't stink.

Wife smells like roses

Why go the the expense and trouble of buying a self contained RV if you aren't going to use all the self contained gizmos, including the toilet?

Dumping the tanks is just another routine chore of having an RV. No mystery or nastiness if the proper equipment and procedures are used. As earlier posters suggested, use plenty of water to flush with. If these things bother you, maybe the RV lifestyle isn't for you.

In earlier years, and an earlier job, my duties included keeping the restrooms clean in a popular gas station. Maybe that's why dumping tanks is no big deal to me. I don't use public facilities unless it's an ABSOLUTE emergency.

If things don't go just right, there is always soap and water.

The Fantastic fans over the toilet and stove only run one way - out
The ceiling fan in the bedroom can run either way though.

In 1957 when my parents rented a trailer the "toilet" was a pull out plywood "seat" with a plastic bag hung from it. Just tie the bag shut and throw it in the nearest garbage can. Then there was the "thunder mug" just pee in it and throw the contents out the door.
Wow, have things changed!!

I have a Fantastic Fan in the living room/galley and it can be set to blow in or out. I smoke and leave it at 10% out till I go to bed.
