Are you sure you are not referring to an Air Admittance Valve? This is not a vent to the outside but an inlet for air.

We have admittance vents on all sinks in our house since it was modularly built. Saves on plumbing work once the house was set on the foundation. They are commonly used in mobile homes. They allow for proper flow without any outside vent needed. Basically allows for less material and time during construction. I can see their advantages for RVs

Are you having an issue?

These air admittance valves are used in thousands of R/V and modular homes and capably do the job they are intended for.

What is the issue that makes you say they are Dumbo Engineered?

That is the symptom when one goes bad. It let's air and odors out. Simple to replace.

Most likely the AAV (Air Admittance Valve) is stuck open. It happens. They're pretty easy to replace and most home improvement stores have them as well as that big online retailer! (You know, the one with the happy boxes!)

Like others have said the valve is not operating correctly if you are getting any foul smell. You may want to try spraying some WD 40 on it to clean it. Might get lucky and not need to replace.

Thanks for reporting back.
We'll assume it corrected the issue?
