Have a smell coming from toilet after the flush. We had the toilet replaced because it didn't hold water. and we had all the tanks professionally cleaned. I have been told there is no vent inside for the toilet other than the one on the roof. the smell lasts about 10 to 15 seconds after the flush.

Do you have an exhaust fan running anywhere in the RV while flushing the toilet? If so, it will pull air (spelled S.T.I.N.K.) through the black tank vent, through the black tank, up and out of the toilet, into the RV.

^Or in other words, turn off the fart fan before you flush.
