Drain to tank connection

Are the drains connected to the holding tank with a rubber seal or are they glued? There is quite a bit of smell coming from the bays where are the tanks are located

They are lightly pressed into a rubber seal. I have had on some of our Newmar's have the plumping pipes have a loss fit or going in at a angel and not have a tight seal. Remember to use a lot of water when rinse both black and gray tanks. Should have a clear section in your drain line to make sure there isn't any other then clear water coming out of the tank. Sometimes we do 3 black tank rinses.
