Additional- Sewer smell can happen with the Fantastic fan on with the door closed while flushing, that I know happens.

We knew from the git-go (courtesy of you fine folks here on the forum) to *never* have the fantastic fan on in the bathroom when flushing.

I do wonder though, if the ceiling fan on in the salon can draw enough air to cause the "odor wave". I'm hoping it's that simple, or if adding water to the empty clean tank will solve that issue.

Reminded me too, gotta pick up tank chems before our trip coming up.

2 things you can do to help.

#1 Get some RV Digest-it and use the "Start up procedure" this should munch up the poo-goo for ya

#2 every now and then, just before you leave camp, dump a #20 bag of ice down the toilet with a shot of RV Digest It this will scrub your black tank clean!

Hope this helps!

Just tried the RV Digest. Still the same problem.It seems the water just fills the pipe going into the tank. There is nothing blocking the pipe over time the water goes down. I wonder if the pipe going into the tank goes to the bottom of the tank, not allowing the water to empty into the tank. As a side note I put 32oz of RV Digest will about 5 gallons of water over time. Still just letting it work.

Another thought, some RV owners have found that when they cut out the hole for the fittings the plug falls in. This causes the tank to clog up. If it's a relatively new trailer and the problem is sudden maybe. Good luck
