To get rid of the odor you exchanges the vent hose in the front of the thank to a quite bigger one and let it out in the bow just unde the anchor and then make a second vent line from the rear end of the tank to the existing hull vent. But make sure itís open air circulations in the old one. With a good cross ventilation in the tank it will not be any smell at all. I have had it for several years now.
Good luck

Hey Boan,

I think maybe you meant to post this in the thread I started about the holding tank sender repair?

Yes, that would work as well, more than one way to skin this cat! I don't need to pull my holding tank though, just needed to get the gauge working again.

I also changed my holding tank vent for a much larger vent under the anchor locker about two years ago. It has helped tremendously with the odor issues.
