I used my toilet this year and there was no smells at all....I simply followed the advice of others on here and it works. I also have the same trailer as your new one, great floor plan. Enjoy!

Doing this I have never had a problem with my black tank.. I never use those RV chemicals in the tank they are detrimental to the ecology of your tank... if you must use something in the tank then get a box of septic tank treatment from a hardware.. but it needs to be in the tank for days...
I just watched a video on ice in a black tank and it does little to nothing for cleaning a tank... think about it .. it is slippery and sits on top of water... so how would it clean your tank? Here is the video link
Great Video and it shows just how ineffective ice is...I just keep lots of water in mine so that it does not allow a lot of build up....as per the advice of many on here!

As any water is the enemy of our aluminum and fiberglass walls....not enough water is the enemy of our poop tanks.

This is going to sound crazy, but, we don't put solids in our toilet. We also have a flushing system on our Greyhawk and I flush the black tank about every 5 days we are on the road. This makes dumping tanks fast and not unpleasant. I'ts just something we have gotten used to.

Dumping tanks might be unpleasant but the thought of using, and worse, letting my kids use, the campground toilets is much more unpleasant to me for a whole host of reasons. So not to use my campers crapper not only sounds crazy, to me it IS crazy

Fear not solids in the tank. Yes, there is risk, but it is not that substantial if the rules above are followed - especially keep some water in the tank.
Personally I will use the park restrooms but that is more as a courtesy to my family. It is a very close environment.
I would prefer my kids use the camper toilet though since I like to know that the surfaces they are touching have only our germs on them. I have my own habits that protect me but they are a bit too young to be paranoid enough to maintain the same germaphobia I have developed through years of media exposure.

Some good info. We don't poop in ours though. All the campgrounds we have stayed have surprisingly had clean bathrooms.

I don't think it sounds crazy. To us, it's just nasty to drive around with a tank full of feces in our camper. Maybe because the campground we use is very clean and the bathrooms are nice, it doesn't bother me to use them. I don't know, but it's our choice and we are sticking to it...unlike poo on the bottom of a black tank. (Haha, see what I did there??)
