Default Kitchen Vent Tube - LEAK?

So I have a leak coming from what I think is the vent tube from my kitchen sink.

I don't see any areas where the water may be leaking in; however, when on top of the rig I noticed my vent tube was clogged about 3 inches down.

Is it supposed to be completely clear? I am thinking water is getting in there and then overflowing at a tube seem somewhere. Thoughts?

Thanks,
Mark

Default LEAK FOUND and questions (VIDEO AND PICS)

Ok, so I found the leak. I guess when I had the roof painted they messed up the seal around the vent tubes on the roof, so water is leaking in around the tube. Check out the pic and vid.

Question though, I noticed these Class Bs don't have vent covers, so do you just use caulking around the tube? Or is there a gasket specifically made for our vans and that vent tube?

I just went around mine with a popular caulking compound.

and have the lippert 360 on my black tank- the grey tank ( on my PW) vents through the exterior side of the van just above the sink

Yep, just bought mine and about to do the same thing. I figured it's likely the best solution.

I am doing the 360 on my Black and just a cap on my grey. Will report the results for the group when I am done.

Thanks!
