And any more things we should be looking for cos we apparently had the same plumbing crew! LOL. Would like to stop any issues in their tracks before they get too bad!

And thanks for the observation that it may have just been too short 'cos I was thinking and wondering all day how we could have done that so that we didn't do whatever it was that caused this issue again.

Interesting about the smell. Yes when there is a defective vent the fumes have to go some place and its usually into the cabinet or a wall or in the case of a house into the room. Those rubber connections work great and you can also use them on a actual waste line. Much easier to make a repair than getting out the PVC glue and cutting pipe. A shot of Dawn dish detergent into the grey tank and the waste tank also helps to clean them out a bit better.

Scootingranny I haven't had any other issues.Or at least none yet. Only other thing that quit working was our water pump.It was sucking air around the winterise port.Pipe dope on the cap fixed that,but about drove me crazy finding where the air was sucking in.DW said it was a short trip too.
