An old school charter driver will tell you, there is NOTHING that will stop that little house back there to stop stinking, once it starts...

Use your imagination, old school charter drivers did, and NOTHING works...

A skin of transmission or engine oil on the top of the water was suspected of suppressing odour while parked...

As noted, a healthy bacterial culture and some fresh water. Chemicals just kill the good bacteria, making it stink, once the perfume wears off.

Happy coaching!

I inject air into my tanks, have a 24V air pump and can also use the bus air, only need 2-5 psi.

I don't use any tank additives. I also don't use anything anti-bacterial for soaps or cleaners either.

When I drain the holding tank, I leave a little in the tank to feed the good bacteria until I add more 'bacteria food'.  Embarrassed
I haven't noticed anything more than a light musty odor, never any strong or offensive odors. Considering what I put in the tank, I'd say I've got some GOOD bacteria in there ! Shocked

If the paper is put in a separate waste can, you won't generally need as much water to clear the bowl.

The more flushes I get before I have to dump, the better life is. . . .  Cool 

No paper in the tank also means no buildup . . . .

You need septic toilet paper.  We used to use Costco tissue but it is no longer for septic systems.  So we buy Sam's Club septic bath tissue-- it breaks down quickly and works well.

The Todd is generator dominant.  So if you start your generator while hooked up to shore power do you fry the electrical system?  I made my own system that is shore power dominant.  I have screwed up and started my generator while hooked up to shore power and it won't let the generator into the 120v shore power system which would destroy everything.

Since I have a house toilet, I don't have to worry about additives.

I have had Coachnet and Good Sam Platinum.  The Good Sam Platinum has cut back on their coverage, but I have used them several times and it pays for itself.

And I do NOT belong to Good Sam because of the annoying mail.

Ned,Coachnet broke ties with FMCA 10 or 12 years ago I don't know how you are setup but I am reading the application if you want the $69.95 auto, $79.99 auto/RV or the $114.95 platinum deal you join Good Sam.I am a member of Good Sam because of the free sewer dump and good propane prices it is worth the $25.00 a year to me just for the sewer dump

back on track...i seriously doubt this will be solved with filters alone. my bet goes to a linkage or tune solution. probably linkage.
