We use one of these on our black and gray water tanks. After empty your black tank, always flush 3-4 full bowls of water back in and run some water in your sinks/shower in case the P-traps were sucked dry. The RV 360 can be obtained here http://www.rvupgradestore.com/index....ROD&ProdID=643
along with this slightly different version here

I installed the RV 360 on my black tank due to the same problem you described. It worked so well, I put one on the grey tank as well. I swear by them.

A smell when you drive is usually caused by lack of water in the P-traps (sinks, shower, etc) or a defective anti-siphon valves (that pipe under the sink with a funny looking cap on it). Either will allow odors to come back into the coach. One of those scavenger vents may help move air away from the interior, but the right fix is to eliminate the path the odor takes to get into the rig in the first place.

I replaced the vent caps under the sinks. Got new ones at Lowes or Home depot. Under $5 each. The old ones had gotten stiff and weren't sealing well. Used a big channel-lock pliers to loosten old ones, teflon tape and hand-tight on the new ones. HarveyP
