I do only if camping for longer periods in the summer (hot) without hookups, or during a really long period of storage, but thats about it.

What I do to prevent smells is that I have a clear section between the "stinky slinky" and the TT, and use a Tornado tank flusher, and I make sure the tanks are "truly" empty - sometimes even after it looks like it's all out, and then I close the tank, run the Tornado for a bit and open it up I can see "leftovers" sneaking out.

After 12 years of full timeing, the best thing I've found is cheap dishwashing liquid. I use the green apple from dollar general, 2 bucks for about a half gallon. I also have the water flush out too and its great!

It's interesting to hear this conversation. We just settled on a Jayco 29L today and during the orientation training, they made it sounds as if putting a chemical in the black water tank is a must. Good to know it's not the end of the world if you don't, as long as you monitor things.

TST orange single shots after each dump with 2 gal fresh water. I've used other "green" chemicals but none keep the hot summer stench down like the TST. Amazon has them for the same price as WM at $10.88 with free del.

I also put Calgon water soeftner in every 2-3 dumps before I drive home to coat the walls with film to keep the sticking down.

We don't use any chemical in the black tank and have no problems with odor. In the summer we sometimes use Odorlos in the galley tank, which I have found can be far smellier than the black tank.
There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.

I use Pure Power, 2 ozs. does 40 gallons and breaks down paper. I use 1 Ply paper that can be bought cheap and this stuff breaks it down. They have stopped making the green colour and now make blue which does have a nice smell to it.

When I first bought my Jayco I used the blue packs that you drop down but in a short time I had a real bad sewer smell. Since using Pure Power I have not had a smell problem.
