Toilet smell in Bathroom

I picked up my FR3 about 10 days ago and have been traveling. We have noticed the black tank smell in the bath. Not sure if it is a venting problem. There is two packs of chemicals in the toilet, and still a smell. We have only used for number 1, so I am confused on the aroma. Anyone else notice this problem.

Do a search on the topic "tank odors in bathroom." If you have a Dometic model 300, it needs to be replaced.

Apparently the model number is on the base next to the foot flush. I'm curios if the model 300 is in the FR3.

Next stop fill with water and flush a few times. Lots and lots of water and see what happens.
Also do not open the roof vent in the bathroom while travelling as it will pull the vapors up from the tank.

Yes, it is a model 300. Are there current issues with this model?
