I discovered it when I was replacing the vent cap and there was condensation all over it. I sealed around the pipe, installed the new vent cap, and dicor'ed all around that.

This and the water filter I can't reach are the only two complaints I have about the design of the trailer.
I sealed around the vent pipe with the expansion foam at both the bottom of the duct and the top because if I didn't do that the cool air blew down the wall and out the hole in the floor on top of my waste tanks. While working underneath I could feel the cool air flowing all over underneath.

My filter isn't that hard to reach but was a pain to unscrew because they just attached it with an "L" bracket to an aluminum support for the bed with one screw. It would sway and twist when I went to screw off the casing. I fashioned a bracket that mounts to the top of the filter and "sandwiches" the aluminum support on both sides giving it some resistant structure when unscrewing. I also streamlined the hoses and water pump for more efficient flow. No problems with that anymore.

Mine's in the 'basement' of the fifth wheel, and I have to remove the panel the furnace is behind to even see it. If I reach my arm in to the shoulder, I can barely touch it. To really access it, I'd need to remove the outside shower, and then I could reach in and access it.

While I have the trailer here at the house, waiting for the new pin box, I'm going pull out that exterior shower, reach in there, and remove the silly filter.

Today my new 15k Pro hitch head arrived to replace the mangled one. Ordered it yesterday, they said it should be here by the 24th, and instead it arrived in one day. Nice!

Oh, and put some Damp Rid in my basement as it stinks like wet down there from my water heater leak.
