Something as simple as a rubber mat laid over the drain when not in use could solve the problem.

We treat our grays with a little of the same chemical for the black....add a little water just like the black....never had an issue with smells on any of them.

If your are hooked up to a sewer don't leave the dump valve open or else you can get sewer gas coming back in.

I always pour water down the shower because we don't use it. Helps prevent smells from coming up.

On our last trip we had a faint bad smell in the coach for the first time. I thought of the traps, especially the in the shower (it was in the bathroom where to smell was the strongest), and poured a little water in each. We still had the smell. I began thinking of all sorts of things that may have gone wrong; from broken pipes, cracked holding tank, etc... That's when my wife decided to pour a lot of water in the shower more smell. If you have tried a little water in each drain and still have a foul odor, try a lot of water and see if that solves the problem
