Just a thought.
I too had an odor problem in the bedroom. Our p-trap for the washer did not have water in it. Filled it up and no more odor.
Or it could be the vent relief cap could be defective. It is a device that lets air in but not out. If the rubber flap is warped or torn it will not make a good seal.
The rubber flap is inside the cap.
Good luck.

Home now. Odor went away as soon as we dumped. So, since unit is new will try together replacement caps/vents under warranty sand try not to go 10 days between, we'll, dumps.
And, yes, we had added our typical chemicals, then added more when the smell started.
Also curious whether not being level somehow contributed to the problem. Thoughts?
Thanks again!

Do I understand that the odor started a number of days of use? I'm wondering if the vent line extends too far into the black tank and then not venting when the level in the tanks seal it.

Here's my take.

If the bedroom vent is open and you turn on power vent in bathroom the air has to suck from somewhere.
So if vent stack is close to bedroom vent it could be bringing fumes in there.
Even without power vent on and bedroom vent open theoretically when you open outside door fumes can be drawn in from bedroom vent.
All this goes out the "window" if stack is not close to the bedroom window of course.

I agree, I suggested getting on the roof and measuring a few posts back.
