Save the vinegar. Switch to fresh water. That's all it takes to stink free. And practice a little conservation. A little pee only needs a minor rinse. As to the other, I'll let you be the judge. I use just enough to make sure it has reached the holding tank
I flush the vinegar after we have pumped out and are ready to leave the boat for a week or more, not every time I take a leak.* Not sure that came across.* But we've done this and have not had any odors in our boat yet.

As for fresh water, is there a reason that is less stinky than raw water (in our case salt water) ?* There are a lot of things living in it, I know that for sure!I am, no Marine Biologist, but I am told, that salt water does contain a much more biologically active mix ( my words, not those of scientists ). Having heard something along those lines, I made the move to fresh water, and the results were slendiferous!!! Never looked back.
