Well I don't know if there is something specific about your camper model, but they all have pretty much the same tank and toilet AFAIK.

I've been using a product called OdoBan available at Sams, Walmart, Home Depot, etc. Comes in 1 gallon jugs. After dumping/rinsing the tank ... I fill the black tank with 2-3 gallons of water and a 1/2 - 1 cup of OdoBan. I'll throw a little in the grey tank too just in case. If that get's real "funky" that can get about as bad as the black tank. So far no smells and it's a lot cheaper then "traditional" RV chemicals.

OdoBan - Odor Eliminator - Home

"Best Chemicals to use" is hotly debated on here, be ready for a wide array of suggestions.

Where do you get it at and does it cost much more than the other stuff that most people use? I have heard good stuff about this but sounded like it was hard to find.

If your retail RV Supplier doesn't stock it R.V.Digest It Concentrate can be purchased from the manufacture at: Unique MM :: All Natural & Green Cleaning Products :: Safe For Your Family & Pets They are located in Arvada CO 1-800-221-3259. The last time I ordered it if you bought 4 quarts the shipping was free. If I remember right it was a little over $40.00 for 4 quarts.
As I look at the bottle I see it says ALL NATURAL ENVIRONMENTALLY CORRECT
