Was your bathroom fan on while you were flushing? That will suck odours out of your black tank.
But yes your tank is also vented out the roof of the 5th wheel.

Cheers

That happened to me a few times. I think if the tank vent pipe is a couple inches to long in the tank, and it is full, it will create some pressure between the tank and the toilet. When you flush, it could "burp" and cause a small burst of air and the odor. More often on a hot day...
