It's the toilet

Have Dometic send you a new, free toilet. Fixed my stinky 2604WS.

Also can check if your unit has a air admittance valve anywhere. Out 8321 has one for the outdoor kitchen sink (Which is plumbed to the black tank) with the fantastic fan running with no other vents or windows open, our air admittance valve will fail and allow sewer odor to pass into the bunkroom.

Replacing the valve will correct. Purchase a Oakley brand or better from big box store or plumbing supply.

That's what I thought too at first. But I figured for $15 and 5 minute installation, minimal loss at worst. 3 Trips later that sewage smell has not come back. Coincidence?

Only if you have not changed ANY thing else.

Amount of water used and the tank treatment alone could make a difference.

We use the blue stuff from Walmart with no issues, 5 gallons or so of water and the recommended amount of treatment.

Some people suggest you have the vent fan shut off when flushing.

We had a similar problem with our new Rockwood and the dealership acted like we were imagining the smell or just inexperienced campers. We finally called Dometic, the toilet department, and as soon as we told them our problem and model number they immediately said there was a defect with that model and had a new one shipped to us in a matter of a couple of days, no charge. Easy to replace and new one has no problems. Hope you get some resolution soon.

The only possible way for these things to work is you need to have an "open" system.
Our rv systems are closed.

The only time this gadget will in fact work is the 3 seconds or less that your toilet valve is open. "Thus an open system"

Does that Camco Cyclone vent work well for the $, I was not sure how well it would work, thought about it just to help keep odors out while driving

As Turbs stated above, it does not work. There is not a way for the sewage stench to be "cycloned" out of your black tank unless there is air let in to replace the noxious gas. The only time there is air let in to the tank is when your foot is on the flusher. Unfortunately "vent" in this situation is a bit of a misnomer, the vent is not there to let the smell out, it is there to ensure that your tank and associated plumbing do not get pressurized, either positive or negative and if so it lets air in or out to prevent damage. Any stench escaping your black tank thru the vent pipe is merely a happy side effect of the vent system.

If you install one of these due to a stench and the stench goes away, especially while driving then something is wrong in your system, as in your closed system is no longer closed.
