Maybe look into that issue too

if it's a Dometic toilet, check previous threads on toilet odor issues. Ours replaced also

Toilet smell

Sounds like Ford1 has a real good place to start. Sometimes the simple things get overlooked . I know sometimes I overthink things and skip the obvious

Toilet Smell

I had the same issue. I crawled around sniffing, to see where the smells were coming from (no this was not fun). I finally found the fumes were coming from the back of the toilet. I called the toilet manufacturer and walked through a checklist with them (to include checking to make sure the roof vent was not blocked or plugged). After going through it all, the rep told me to take it to the dealer and Thetford would replace the unit. They asked where I would be taking it and they would send the unit to that location, so it was there, when I got to the dealer.

The toilet was there (even though the dealer almost installed it on another unit) and the new toilet works fine. There was a bad seal in the toilet itself.

Thetford did a wonderful job of taking the time to walk me through their checklist and making sure everything was ready when I arrived at the dealer. I was pleasantly surprised.

We had that same problem in our TT, last summer. Ford1 was spot on with the fix that worked for us.

Are you sure it's coming from the toilet??? I had a similer issue and after having tried many solutions menthioned in here, i found that when i had flushed the grey tank it had sifined the water from the P trap in the shower. This was where the foul smell was coming from. Poured water into the shower drain and the smell went away. Try this before changing the toilet.

Siphoning from the shower sounds like your grey tank vent is plugged.

Same problem after only a few uses, used Happy Camper Extreme cleaner and it took care of the problem! Now I make sure to rinse the tank well when dumping!

I think TonyD had, by far, the best recommendation!

We had an odor problem in the previous RV. Going with the simple stuff first, we added water to all p traps. Nope. Really flushed both tanks. Nope.

Stuck this on top of the sewer vent. Problem solved.
