We have a dump station in front of our house. After every trip we dump and flush. We keep all vents (gray and black) open while it is stored until we are ready to go on the next trip. We are on our fourth MH and after 32 years we have never had any smell or odors coming from anywhere.

I always flush real, real good then add about 3 gals of water and drop a tab in, no problem in the winter being there is room for expansion and also I keep the electrical on 24/7 at home. during the winter if a big freeze is coming for over 24 hrs I just put the tank heaters on which are thermostatically controlled.

OP said he wasn't asking about winter storage...just between trips.

I do the same things between trips, but added winter storage being he didn't know what to do about trips he wouldn't know how to store it either..but your correct he did ask about between trips to me there is no difference was the point.

Thanks WD....I wasn't replying directly to your post, but in general so we didn't highjack his question with winter storage options
