I had a 2010 Eagle that had a constant blank smell coming from the base of the toilet. And when the black tank was full it would leak into the underbelly and then leak out onto the ground. I took it back to the dealer at least 4 times and they always said it was fixed when I don't think they actually did anything (thanks Camptown RV). Finally I took it to Bill Plemmons and they instantly figured out that Jayco had drilled the hole too large in the black tank and the only fix was to replace the black tank. Getting one took months and we missed a lot of camping that summer. But when we got it back it was fixed right and we never had a black tank leak or smell again.

Follow-up:

Received a call from the RV tech today and they determined that the smell was being emitted into the trailer from the toilet itself. The toilet is a Thetford two-piece plastic toilet and the seal between the two sub-pieces was the root cause. There was also a seal at the hand flush handle assembly that was allowing odor to escape as well. Replacement seals aren't available for this particular model toilet so I'm having a new toilet installed.

The tech stated that the black tank and floor mounting flange were fine, and that the fill/flushing trips that I did eliminated the initial source of the methane gas smell. He stated that there was still some residual odor within the underside of the toilet, but stated some mold and mildew was present as well.

Problem solved.

I will be interested in how effective that 360 Siphon product works once installed on the TT roof.

Bob

Bob, glad you found your problem. Again, wish I could figure out what happened with mine. There was a build up in the black tank, for when I flushed, A loud rush of (air/gas) came out. Something had caused the build up. Was hooked up to sewer, and drained tank at about 2/3. First, and only time to happen.

I am the most impressed you dropped off your TT on a Saturday during during the season and then got it looked at and diagnossed by the following Wed. Around here all the shops are very candid they won't be able to even look at for a week + during the summer season and repairs will take even longer.

Clubhouse,

Yeah, and my BIL did better than me....; My BIL dropped his TT off 4 hours after I did on Saturday (the same place) for a non functional slide issue, and he got a call Tuesday morning (yesterday) that his TT was repaired and ready for pick-up!!

This RV service center doesn't sell RV's, they only service them. The owner of the facility a number of years ago use to be the service manager at the Jayco dealership that I've purchased my last two Jayco's from.

Not a big place, but clean, do good work, and have an impressive parts inventory. I drive through the area often and they seem to always have a pretty steady business.

All three of my BIL's take their RV's there for service.

Bob,

Greetings. Have you had time in your TT since having the new toilet and 360 Siphon installed? Has the Siphon made a noticeable difference?

Are you leaving the exhaust fan on over the toilet, often times this will pull gases up from the tank. You may need to also give the black tank a good "degreasing". Even though we believe we adequately flush them black material can still be built up on the walls and base of the tank. There are several great videos on YouTube and such on how to fix these issues...good luck!!!
