Gary RV_Wizard said:Chances are the residual aroma is coming from the open pipe in the septic system rather than the RV, so a seal at the connection might help. However, a lot of aroma from the septic may indicate it is not healthy, so I would dump in a septic biological assist product, e.g. Rid-X or Roebic K37. It's easy to do - just flush it down a drain and let it flow into the septic tank.

What sort of "drop-ins"? Some of the products sold for RV tank usage are preservatives rather than enhancers. The worst of them can kill off the bacteria that make an in-ground septic tank function.I already use drop-ins and i flush the tank with 1 gal of water down the toilet

What i do is cut a pvc pipe in half and laid it over the top of the hoses to keep the sun from frying them. It may be time for some new hoses anyway They been out there over two years.
Excellent point. When he said "permanent site", I was thinking a private site & septic, but it could be a seasonal campsite as well. I strongly advise against adding chemicals of any sort to a septic system operated by a campground.trying to add chemicals to a campground septic system would take quite a bit of chemicals and would be fruitless.
