Odors are gone! I even let it go for 3 weeks as a test. No smell.

P.S. our head is fresh water flush
Its very possible that if you had used "all kinds of treatments but none really worked", that you were actually causing the problem. Many of these treatments may temporarily mask odor, but kill the good bacteria that prevent odor. Keeping all witchcraft out of the holding tank is the best first step. Adding good bacteria is fine. Lots of clear water, no chemicals and good ventilation and zero reason for a holding tank to ever smell.
