I have a six year old fifth wheel. The odor from the holding tanks is aweful!!! I have tried every chemical in Camping World's catalog. I have tried filling the tanks 1/3 and driving around so it will slosh loose any crud in the tanks, but it still smells aweful when I flush. Can you use Rid X in an rv?

Please advise.

You can typically buy Borax and Calgon water softener in the laundry section of grocery stores (don't shop Wal Mart so do not know about them). If you are in an area with naturally soft water Calgon may be hard to find. You can order it online. One source is Amazon Calgon at Amazon

Thank you very much. for letting us know Amazon has it. Also, was at Target today and saw that they stock 20 Mule Team borax in laundry supplies. Didn't know that was still made. Neat!
