We drive with the front wdos open (weather and road noise permitting) and the rear bedroom wdos cracked. This seems to eliminate most of the odors - fresh air coming in, 'stale' air going out. Always re-fill traps after dumping, and put drain plugs in also. Be sure to leave some liquid in the tanks, and add 2 cups of vinegar.

People pay alot of money for that smell when staying in Venice italy.
On the bottom floors of some old residences/rentals etc it always reminded me of a "loaded RV"
Now when that occurs in our RV I pretend Im in Venice,makes it a little moore tolerable

I pulled the toilet from the tank and tore up the pesdistal because I suspected a leak between the toilet and the tank. That seems to be fine. There does not look to be a vaccume break valve on the back or the toilet bowl.

What gives?
