Bad smell when entering TT
« on: July 12, 2018, 12:11:49 PM »
Just got back from our weekly "rv check" at the storage lot.  When I enter my tt I am always hit with a very unpleasant smell.  Kind of like rotten food.  It is right as you come in the door.  I thought it might be from the kitchen sink, but I opened the cover and no smell at all.  The rest of the TT is fine.  The only place I smell it is when I enter.  Anyone else ever have anything like this?   I keep damp-rid in it and I have dryer sheets spread all around the floor.  This week we just added ant traps (the storage area has fire ants, and I don't want them in my TT)  Any ideas???

Check under the sink for the smell, it might be a bad air admittance valve.  Check for water leaks, both plumbing and rain water, rot may have started causing an odor.   Those damp-rid and other measures will not remove enough moisture to matter a bit.  If you want to reduce humidity, run a dehumidifier.

Are you sure it's not just a dirty black tank.  I need to rinse mine decent, or a few weeks later, it can have an odor.

Poor some water in your drains.  The elbows may be low and allowing odors to come up from your grey tank.
