Can I guess that you are interested in this product because you have an issue with odor, perhaps from the bathroom? I have encountered some issues with a sewer smell on occasion. My take is that it occurs after a day of travelling and in my case comes from the shower drain. The solution I have found is to pour some water down the shower drain after stopping. If there is a p-trap below the shower this fills it up again and it forces you to check the tightness of the drain plug for the shower, a second cause of odor.

No, it was never serious enough that I considered a vent extension. And mine would be gray water exhaust. Or are both the gray and black water vented into the same stack?

In this case it's a black tank odor. I'm not sure if the black and grey tanks share the same vent. The video seems to imply that the black tank has it's own vent.

Hi: J Mac... Our 5.0 shower is not a "P" but a "V" trap. This causes some sewer gas to leak out as the trap has been sloshed empty in travel. As fudge_brownie mentioned the solution is to add some water or deodorant and water to the drain, and secure the plug tight. Alf

I don't have first-hand experience with the Cyclone Sewer Vent, but it was much praised by a couple of full-timers that I know. I asked Reace about it when I visited Chilliwack. He didn't try to sway my opinion one way or the other, but he did say that if I wanted one installed he could pick one up and install it during the build.

I just installed the cyclone vent. It appears the gray and black tanks share the same vent. I'm going to swap out the bathroom vent as well due to UV Ray cracking. Heng's makes the 9"X9" vents for $59.00.

My 2006 17 does not share the same vent. Black water vent on roof, grey water vent next to door.
