Default Tank 360 Siphon Roof Vent

We have a Zion. Wondering if anybody has tried one of these vent? Help with the draw and keep bugs out.

FitRV has done it. It is a Travato, not Zion. Check their website for pictures.

I recently put one on my pleasure way- if it had a cover, the P/O probably got in the trees as the tv antenna was damaged.

Mine was under $20 (amazon pricing is 'dynamic' it shows higher as I write)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

bugs I don;t worry about- it does have a screen

the low pressure zone caused by the wind passing under the cap over the vent pipe does draw fumes from the tank- a vast improvement.

without, when driving positive pressure can be made in your tank, pushing fumes into the RV

The mounting allows for a few options, I didn;t use the base plate surround, but attached directly to my stub with a little silicone and drilled a hole for a set-screw.

my review: 5 star

How would the fumes get into the RV? Bubble up through the traps?
If you have odor problems, you very likely have defective plumbing.

roll down your window a bit at speed and air is pulled out the window.....like how the smoke from your cigarette gets pulled out.( remember when we all smoked)

replacement air is sucked in from "somewhere" ...and wind pushing at a bare pipe stub ( which is what I had) can make for some fuming.

traps & seals will work great with a slight pressure differential, but at some point that will be overcome.

Fair enough. However, our van has ZERO odor under all conditions (although I admit that we do not drive with windows open). I honestly believe that a properly designed and correctly operating RV sewer system does not smell, with or without a vent cap.

I installed the same one on our 97 Roadtrek, and it really works great, we had the same problem with the bad odours being pulled into the cab when the windows were down while driving. I bought mine at camping world, it was easy to install, and it fixed the problem immedietly. I too would give it a 5 star rating, Ill add some pics of my installation,,,, good luck,,,,

Came standard on my Airstream Interstate. Great vent - best on the market, wonder why they aren't on all RVs.
