What is A Plumbing Check Vent? by Mark Bower - Manufactured Housing News

Glue on a threaded adapter and screw in the cheater vent. Air only goes INTO the pipe and never out of it.

You would have to plug that stupid hole in the wall. Maybe cutting in a hatch to access that cabinet from the outside?
Just wait till the cheater vent malfunctions. Now you get the stink inside the trailer. Ask me how I know. I wish mine were vented outside properly thru the roof. Have changed 2 out already
