always check the holding tank.........

hadnt checked the holding tank for 3 weeks, cause we hadnt used it. The admiral lifted the toliet seat to do her thing and hollered, at first we didnt know what happened (such a mess), then after I cleaned it up and had pumped some into the holding tank we noticed a RANK smell, the blige pump came on and lo and behold, some brown water came from under the vberth. (1967 Cal 30).
FUN? Not so much. Turned out my 2nd cousins (ages 6,8,10) had pumped their little hearts out, fillled the holdinhg tank bladder and I had no clue as it sat there "cooking" over the last 3 weeks 95+ degree weather.
The flexible holding tank had 'goo/poo' all over it. I Lysoled everything down, rinsed several gallons of water through the bilge and repeated. Smell appears to be gone, will know tomorrow.
I will check it every time out now, for sure, but what else can I do now to help with cleaning and smell?
thanks guys
