How did you get it out ? Is the AAV glued on the drain pipe or screwed on the pipe, or just press fit on the pipe ? thanks

Mine was screwed in a riser just behind the sink

Had the exact same issue. Put on a new valve under the sink and all is well. Probably should have kept the old one and cleaned it up for the next time but didn't. Fairly inepensive so will just get a new one if it should happen again. Just a simple screw off and screw back on.

Oh wait, we don't need no stinkin' RV code...

(Pun wasn't intended, but it works...)

Cubman, one other modification that many say works well. There are vent caps that can prevent backpressure through the roof vents (if equipped). They work like an airfoil to keep constant negative pressure on the tank stack - sucks the odors out of the tank instead of letting them backup into the trailer when the wind is right. I haven't personally tried them, but did a bit of research and a lot people believe in them. Is on my future mods list.

It's spelt steeekin' if'n you wanna quote the move....

And, yeah I totally forgot about how building codes influence the construction of RV's.




Glad to hear all is OK now.

I have a 2008 pup, and I have no AAV. The sink goes straight out a drain line. The shower, on the other hand, drains into the grey water tank, I found a standard P-trap on the shower. Since I seldom use the shower, the trap dries out, and any odor in the grey water tank goes through the drain line and into the trailer. Although the grey water tank has an outside vent, the drain line offers a much larger opening. I would have preferred an AAV.

Just curious, but how often do you do a thorough cleaning of the black tank? I was under the impression that this is an annual task that an owner should perform. After you have checked for appropriate venting of the tank, a good cleaning of the black tank would be a good idea. Over time, the tank starts to collect residue (not to be gross) and a good cleaning with some kind of bleach solution and extensive flushing would dislodge things and leave the tank cleaner.

Again, this is what I understand. I hope you find the right solution, good luck!

odor gone

I checked the sink, and it goes straight out to the port under the pup. The shower has a trap before going in to the grey water tank. I put water in the trap and the odor was gone. I have only had this pup for a few months, and thought I had done all the necessary maintenance before putting it away for the winter. The previous owner, unknown to me and much to my chagrin, sold me the pup with a full cassette in the toilet. On the three hour trip home, the cassette leaked. It took me days to clean all of that mess out. I feared that the cassette mess had escaped the outer vault/housing/whatever it is called. Fortunately, and thanks to advice in this forum, I was able to isolate the problem to the trap and grey water tank. In the spring, when I take this out of storage, I will do a thorough cleaning of the grey water tank. For the moment, keeping the trap wet will contain the odor. Thanks to all the contributors for your advice.

Perhaps a dead mouse or other rodent?
