Grey and Black Tank odor

Have a question about our tanks. This time and last time out we have bad odor coming from both sinks, shower, and the stool. I rinse the black tank after every dump. It helps some to pour some Clorox in them but only short term. Any idea about the cause and solution? Do you guys put some in them between usage??

I replaced my back flow preventors with ones from Home Depot. They are designed to allow air flow but eliminate any odors coming from the sewer. The ones installed on the trailers do no work very well. Have not had a problem since.

I replaced my back flow preventers as well. I also found out my ano rod was causing our shower water to smell when connected to certain water supplies.

Have you ever tried or used the GEO method?
It's a great substituent/replacement for those nasty chemicals that are normally used in the tanks. I've used it exclusively for years, and can't say enough good about it.
