We've had this happen as well. Sometime I'll put holding tank deodorizer in the grey tank, and that really works to keep the smell away.

The porta-potty that came with my van would smell after a few days of using it. I don't know if it had a small leak or what (there wasn't any noticeable spillage), but without fail, it would start to smell of urine. Since we replaced that one with the Curve, we haven't had a hint of odor problems.

I was getting a bit worried after not seeing any activity for a few days, butt I am very relieved now that the flood gates have re-opened.

Yeah, it did seem to get backed up there for a few days.

It seems like this thread did get constipated for a few days but it's back to regular duty...

So my lesson is to empty the potty more often as well as draining and rinsing the grey water tank more frequently on the road.

Does your p-trap not adequately hold water? You shouldn't be getting odor inside from your gray tank...
