I would fill the black tank to 2/3-3/4 full, add a capful of Calgon, a capful of Purex, maybe your black tank deodorizer of choice, and a bag of ice and drive it down the road. Dump again and I'd bet you'll be good to go. Good luck!

Have not had problems with odors and my sensors seem to be reading pretty well.
X2. This is what we do and never had an issue with smell, blockage or false reading probes. By the way there are better after market probes available. Very good reviews on those.
