Condensate forming inside vanity of 2015 XLR NITRO 24fqsl

I noticed it was getting wet under my bathroom vanity. Moisture kept condensing on the underside of the stainless steel sink. So I looked inside and found that the sink drains into a p trap which drains to vertical pipe by way of a t fitting. The t is OPEN on top and venting inside the vanity allowing moisture to escape and condense on the steel sink when ac is on. I think it should be venting to the stack pipe which is close by but hidden in the wall. I'm afraid its going to stink when my gray tank gets ripe or cause mold to form. Here is sideways pic

This should have a vent like this installed. It looks like they may have missed it during installation. http://m.homedepot.com/p/Oatey-Sure-...9018/100140686

Duct tape over that vent?

Plus maybe a small fan in there to circulate air?

The kitchen sink drain has some sort of valve on the top side of the T fitting. Looks like they left it off and it got by QC inspection.

Yep, thats a Studor valve (or vent).... with it off you could get sewer gases inside. Condensation too it seems.

Wulfe513 - There is definitely supposed to be a small length of black pipe and a vent on the top of that "T" section. Somehow we obviously missed that during production of your unit. Please send me a PM with your name, serial number of your unit(last 6 of VIN), and contact information. We will get you taken care of asap!
