It's a porta potti so you don't have any pipework or venting. It's a self contained unit.

best thing for neutralizing pee is vinegar-- clean it really welland see if the skank doesnt leave---if not-- BUY A NEW ONE. then use odorlos. that stuff works great.

The head is hooked up and vented correctly but is still an RV head. It says to add chemicals so we follow the instructions. Yes eventually we want a marine head and that is in the plans...but for the next 6 to 8 months this head has gotta suffice.
