My roof vent is for the black tank and my sink vent is by the entry door.

I actually went and pulled the cover back and checked it again because I've been wrong once or maybe twice before Don't know when they changed but my 2014 definitely vents through the roof via a white mushroom vent.

Ron,
I am looking forward to seeing some completed pictures of your new door storage area. I really like to see some pictures of how you ended up rerouteing the drain and vent. I still have not been able to get some to my storage door area project. I see you hinged your door on the right side. I went back and forth on which side to hinge the door I ended on the left side.
Mark

Yeah, I went back and forth on that one too. Fortunately either way works just fine.

Today it was same old, same old. Tape template in place, cut opening, glue in backing blocks and install door.

It's a great space. I'll relocate some wires and probably carpet the area including the wheel wells. It's dedicated entirely to tool storage. Couldn't resist throwing in Jack's tool bag that he kindly donated for the "Possible Pouch" event at Moab.

Just have to install the propane detector in a new location and I'll be back to modifying the plumbing.

Ron

It would be better the way it is now. There is the odd time we get an unpleasant whiff from the grey tank, though not terrible. A couple years ago we started adding a bit of grey tank deodorizer, and that cured it good. Still better to vent on the roof.

Ron
I have been thinking about this modification, mainly to increase the space under the sink. I am thinking of replaceing the "P" trap with Hepvo valve. The Hepvo valve can be ordered from Little House Customs. Thanks

Ron,
I like your mod and plan to do it. What size of door that you ordered from ETI and what is the size of the door opening. Thanks.

Ron ,
You stated in your post that you're going to carpet the wheel well area so I'm thinking you must mean you're going to open up the rest of the wheel well area. I thought I would post how I rerouted the refrigerator line and the refrigerator condensation drain. First picture I am posting is the lines before I moved them.
