We’re pretty meticulous about maintaining our black and gray tanks and never really noticed much of an odor problem. The only time it was an issue was while traveling down the highway with a mostly full gray tank with the driver’s window open. That seems to create a vortex that pulls gray tank odors into the RV.

If you don’t think that gray water can smell almost as bad as black water, you probably haven’t done much serious boondocking. Using such a small amount of water results in a high concentration of soap, food particles and body oils, creating a pretty bad odor. Let’s face it… the contents of both RV waste holding tanks can stink. The trick is keeping that smell out of the RV’s interior.

After a recent trip with mostly full gray and black tanks, we decided to try out a solution we’d read about many times in Chuck Woodbury’s RVtravel newsletters. The results are in, and we can’t believe the difference. We didn’t think we had much of a problem, but now we’re wondering if we’ve been like those cat owners who don’t seem to know that their house smells like a litter box. Hope not!
