On our new to me 2014 Tiffin Phaeton 40 QBH, there is an urine smell from the half bath toilet. We washed the toilet, walls and floor with Lysol cleaner. No success. The smell is more pronounced when you pick up the seat cover. Any help to stop the urine smell would be appreciated.


Happy Campers Since 1980 and still kicking.

If the toilet does not hold water for an hour or so, I would guess that you have a leaky gasket.
They do have those toilet bowl deodorant blocks that hang on the edge of your bowl until you find the source.

The toilet holds water. No leakage here that is why I am stumped.

Some of these toilets have a plastic water dispenser which points the water to the side of the toilet..it is a small plastic piece and perhaps this plastic water distributor needs to be replaced.

Did you wash the inside of the lid where you peed on it.

Few thoughts. Make sure the black water tank vent pipe is operating correctly, dump some bleach and soap in the black water tank and drive around/dump, check/replace the air vent under the bathroom sink (many bathroom sinks are plumbed to the black water tank)- they only cost about $10.

I had one where the toilet flange (where the toilet mounts to the floor) was cracked, allowing black tank odors to seep into the bathroom. It was a small crack, but when we replaced the flange, odors stopped. You would have to unscrew the toilet mounts and remove it to check.
