You can do same by pushing air down toilet hole......

I forgot that you have the lighter color camper. Ours is the Diamond package which has the darker exterior, where I guess yours is the Platinum package. Otherwise identical
Yeah Platinum with Convenience Package F. Upgraded AC to 15,000 BTU as well.
I'm going to smoke test that toilet next weekend and see which vent is which.

Seems like ours are almost identical except the exterior color. I forget the specific options but I think we have everything available except 2nd a/c
Ours has a mfg date of Jan from one of the stickers, but was bought in late summer

Yeah we're identical except you're Champaign colored. Cherry cabinets too right?

If you have two or more vents, there is no harm to install cyclone vents on others than the black tank one.

If the position of the vent makes it too tight to install «Cyclone vent» look also for this one; it is static but the desing gives confidence. Look for more information from forumers.

Thanks for the photos (sorry I forgot to reply after seeing them on my phone)
Looks great. I think I might have to put an order in.
Is that a spray-in bedliner ? or a "bed rug" ? (I'm guessing a spray-in, since it looks like it goes under the rails)

I have the Ford plastic bed-liner (dealer included it) which I cut 2 slots in for the bed rails. Great in theory, except that it buckled up around the front corner (I guess just because there's less material keeping it straight), and stuff gets underneath it (grease from hitch, pine needles etc), tho' I am thinking of making a cover to go over the bed rails and around the hitch legs (just some thin corrugated plastic)

I think the problem with sending the photos was that my inbox was full, so I cleared out a few messages.

If you are going to try the essential oil suggestion, be very careful. Essential oils are very concentrated can damage many surfaces. I use essential oil of peppermint for rodent prevention, but always contain it in an old ceramic coffee cup.

To me that is one ridiculous place to route a vent. If it were mine I would get some pvc and glue in an extension to get it above the vent cover. Just saying.
