What I am wondering about is sewer gas from the black tank vent and if that is going to stink up my garage. I'm thinking about putting a bathroom vent fan in the ceiling positioned so it will sit right over the black and grey tank vents (ceiling is 12' so it fan would sit about 2' over the vents) ... but I'm not sure if that is necessary or conversely if it will be sufficient. We use our AI as a run around town vehicle so while the tank gets dumped every couple of weeks it will definitely have odiferous contents in it while sitting parked indoors. Does anyone have any real world experience with this?
No experience. However, no garage should be enclosed and non
-ventilated, simply because you're parking an internal-combustion engine in it. Not to mention a propane tank. I'd recommend that you definitely provide ventilation for safety, even if there wasn't
a black tank's stink to contend with.
