One thing after another - part 1

We are the happy owners of a '13 Windjammer 3025. But, we've experienced several problems and none are related.
Shortly after bringing it home in early August, we came home to hear one of the alarms going off.
We don't have A/C in our home because where we live most days we don't need it. So on those days we do, we sleep in the TT. I filled the fresh water tank and we have all the comforts of home.
When I opened the door, I couldn't believe the smell! After silencing the alarm, and airing it out some, I went sniffing for the source of the odor.
My sniffer led me to the bathroom and the cabinet under the left sink. When I opened the door, I about passed out. Fortunately I needed a flashlight and was able to get some fresh air. I thought about a gas mask, but don't own one and don't know anyone who does.
Of course I'm thinking the worst, cracked line, broken glue joint, etc. I hook up and head to the dealer the next day. 80 miles away.
The tech looks under the cabinet, reaches in and removes the check valve, looks at it and says 'Here's the problem'. It was stuck open with plastic shavings from construction. He grabs another, installs it and problem goes away. Honestly, I didn't know grey water could stink so bad.
So let's recap. 160 mile round trip, 3/4 tank of gas, $16 bridge fare. All for a $3 part.

Well, I guess you could at it as a good thing that it was only a $3 part and no major repairs were required. We're about 40 miles from our dealer, so we can relate to the time/expense/hastle of a round trip. We also made a trip that cost more in fuel than the cost of work.

On a side note - I see you live in the UP. We made our first trip through there in August. Definitely planning a return trip. Lots of great places for camping.

KMP 44-
When you get back this way, stop in. I enjoy playing tour guide. (Which is code for getting people lost)
Really, I could probably tell you some places to see that aren't necessarily in the books.
