A wastewater odor in the cab of your RV can make for a very unpleasant journey. No one wants to be stuck with that lingering foul smell coming from your RV holding tanks for the entirety of a road trip. So in this lesson we teach you how to sniff out the source of the odor, and demonstrate the proper way to diagnose and fix that stinky problem.

To help you find the origin of the smell in your cab, RVing expert Dave Solberg walks you through a quick demonstration for determining where it’s coming from. He explains why the issue is most likely a faulty vent that leads odors up from RV holding tanks and out through the roof. You’ll learn how to work your way through each of the suspected vents and, once you’ve found the culprit, utilize the right solution. Luckily, that solution is quick and inexpensive, so you can take care of that unpleasant smell in no time flat!
