I was on campground water, although I did clean my fresh water tank. I just make it my practice to drain the heater, only takes a few minutes and i get to check my anode at the same time. I am still learning , I get tons of great info on this site.

RV sinks and bathtub/showers have "P" traps much like your home has. The water in these P traps prevent odors from backing up through the system. If an RV sits for just a few days this water can evaporate and allow odors into the RV. As stated always keep a few gallon's of water in your tanks. This reduces bacterial growth and odors. We put a good squirt of olive oil in the sink and bathtub drains to reduce evaporation. Having vent covers and leaving them open just a bit helps also.
