Are you sure the odor is coming from the Black tank? My 23B has an issue (I think) with the shower basin P-trap. When we travel the water sloshes out of the trap, and the bathroom stinks. What I do now is keep the basin plug in the drain and the odor is now gone. One of these days I will look under the basin to see how the trap is installed.

There is a tank vent that exits through the roof. On our 23B it's right next to the bath vent. Possible it's stopped up? The flap on the toilet could also be worn (I think they are replaceable but don't know how - yet). Drain and rinse the tank(s). I find after I empty the black and use the wand (very unpleasant BTW) I can flush lots more "stuff" out of the black. The tank chems help but still don't make a basket of flowers. Unlike our houses everything that goes into the toilet stays with you until you empty the black - even then some "stuff" will remain.
I like to say that these things are like boats and airplanes. The bigger, the more complex. And there is a constant need to tinker, fix, adjust, replace, repair something.

It ain't cheap...but it IS accurate.

I am wonderin about the propane gage on this meter. Our current meter does not track the propane, thoughts / mods / ideas?

The propane level will only work with tanks that have the float sensor installed. These are typically found in class A & C motorhomes. The tanks are permanently mounted on these units. They are not available on 20, 30 and 40# removable tanks. At least I have never seen this capability on these tanks.

So, the LP part is not usable on most TT's.
