We are full time RVers..with a new 2017 Rockwood 5th wheel. We are having concerns with a sewer smell inside the unit every time we flush the toilet. It only lasts a minute or so it is very annoying. We empty & flush tanks every few days. Any ideas what might be causing this problem? Thanks

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. If you are leaving your black tank valve open to the sewer system and your bath fan on you may be getting smell from the system. Keep the black closed until your tank is getting full then dump. Try flushing without the bath fan on and see what happens. Also check the roof cap on the air gap for obstructions. let the forum know wha you find
