Welcome and enjoy the forum. Look on your main screen (if on a pc or mac) and scroll down until you see the Green Bar with "Forest River Tech Talk" It has sub-catagories including plumbing (sewer and waste water systems." There are a lot of smart folks on there that will have some suggestions to help narrow down the problem and offer some potential help. Good luck.

Hi there and welcome to the forums! I see that dcheatwood has directed you to a better location for your questions. It can make a difference as some of the more experienced members tend to spend time in forums they can assist in. Not being so technical myself I can't really offer any useful advice - sorry.

Good luck!
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Hope you find the solution to your question. I have found the first step is the "Geo-method" for black water tanks. One cup liquid softener, one cup liquid detergent mixed in one gallon of water. Pour into the empty black tank and then add your dissolver/deodorizer. I currently use nuGen (avail @ Amazon). It works for me. At least for 5-8 days, depending on the outside temps. I just add another measure if I smell any odor. If this helps but you still have the odor you might want to check the vent system on the roof. Their are options to improve this system too. Good luck and welcome to the forum......
