    Real problem with black tank odor have tired just about ever thing and still after emptying the tank and flushing realy good several times still have odor as soon as you left the tank lid. I am useing Odorless for the tank but have tried numerious other product but no help. Also have noted the vent on the roof is not emitting much odor is that common?

    Check that vent to be sure it is not clogged up. We use a product called Bio-Clean; which is an enzime that eats proteins (paper, hair and you know what) It does not have a deodorizer but we have not needed one.

    ALSO ON THE VENT TUBE, IT COULD BE THAT YOUR VENT TUBE HAS SLIPPED DOWN FURTHER INTO THE TANK AND HAS MATERIAL AROUND ITS' BASE. I HAVE HEARD WHERE NEW RVS. HAVE THIS PROMBLEM ( SMELLS- NO VENTING ) BECAUSE SOMEONE INSTALLED THE VENT TUBE TO LOW IN THE WASTE TANK. AL
