Let's get personal... I'm curious what everyone's expectations are, surrounding their waste systems, how much odor it gives off, etc.
My general usage would probably be considered light: I'm in the office everyday, during the day + usually don't spend the bulk of weekend time in the RV. So I don't accumulate much.
However, it seems like time, not quantity, is the biggest factor, when it comes to odors. Any amount of waste - from only 2 or 3 #1s all the way to a half-full tank of everything - seems to become noticeable (even if just slightly) after a week or two.
Also, whenever I drive, the black tank has to be empty. My experience is that any amount of waste - again, even only 2 or 3 #1s - will create noticeable odors whenever you drive for more than 20-30 minutes and they'll find their way up to the driver's area.
Finally, I've been A/B testing using a tank deodorant. I think I read HandyBob say that he doesn't use any tank deodorant because, in his opinion, needing to use a deodorant means the seals on your waste system aren't sufficiently keeping odors out + that's what you need to fix.
From my testing, I've decided that tank deodorant helps, a little bit.
What's everyone's general expectations and experience with this? Does any of it match the above?
