I've also heard of using the foaming denture cleaning tablets for the bottom of vases & such where no scrub brush will reach...I assume that you might want to use more than one for a holding tank...not as cheap as vinegar, hot water, and baking soda - but similar foaming action to loosen anything that might have ended up stuck on the bottom of the holding tank.

Not an immediate solution but would it be possible to replace it with a composting toilet in the future?  From what I understand, they have very little odour and even solids wouldn't be a problem.  You could even put food scraps in.  Most of them do require electricity, though, I think.
I have CDO.  It is like OCD but with the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be.

Rather than worrying about the tank, how about focusing on the vent? You said it is the outside vent that smells. So can you put in a charcoal filter or some sort of air purification filter?

Back in my BC days (before children), I was a long haul truck driver w/my ex-husband.  Something I used to use in our porta potty was Odoban concentrate.  Can find it at Walmart/Sam's and Home Depot.  Very safe and effective :)
