Default waste tank and pipework

After living in our swift gazelle for 6 weeks on our drive , we are now in our new home
we took the van out yesterday and we are getting a bad smell from the waste pipes in the sink and bathroom
what's the best thing to use to clean the pipes and the waste tank ????
cheers Chris.

worth a try.....some folks say it works.

Empty a couple (or more) of bottles of cheap cola into the empty tank then go for a drive to slosh the cola around.

Empty and refill with water (hose pipe in the sink) then empty don't want a sticky sugary residue left in the tank.

If it doesn't work, it's only cost less than a quid.
I'm trying to see it from your point of view
but i cant get my head that far up my ass
