Sorry to disagree, when water exits the black tank, air is DRAWN in thru the roof vent, not out. When you flush the stool, the water/debris goes into the tank and PUSHES air out the roof vent."

I guess you feel argument today, so be it... I quests you can also ignore my post #8 where I clarified how I flush the tank ...

Please Depends on what "flush the tank' means. Maybe I should have been more specific.. When I back flush my tank I usually drain the black tank with black valve open. I then close the black tank valve while still flushing, thus putting water in the closed tank. Smell has to go out the stack being displaced by water."

So be it...

Moving on, back to the OP's issue. Are you keeping water in your black tank at all times? As stated above, make sure the bathroom fan is off, water in toilet bowl and lid closed.
