I'm thinking he is talking tank vents and not ceiling vents.

Air gaps are used for anti siphon . like on a dishwasher . the air admittance valve is one way and acts like a vent allowing air it but blocking sewer gas out , supposedly . they where known as studor vents [manufacture] yrs ago .

Check out this link (and many others on the net.) There are many origins of that 'stink.' I spent a lifetime in the auto industry and our shops always had a number of similar complaints. The main culprit was a fungus that grows under conditions found in the systems. Application of a fungicide, usually corrected it.

Yes, roof vents and windows should be closed.

Yes I would never run an A/C with the windows open,,, unless I had just stepped into an over heated car,,, then I think it is helpful to let the A/C blow out some of the Hot air... My thoughts with the roof vents is that Heat rises,,, so maybe if the RV was very hot,,, maybe it would be smart to start with vents open ???
