Bathroom smells

Smell coming from bathroom sinks. Any suggestions? Tried putting tablets in sink and filling tank, going to next location. Still still there.

Either drain trap is dried out or it is the vent (Photo) under the sink. Try tapping with a screwdriver. You can cover with a small plastic bag to determine if that is the cause.

I'm betting on the vent under the sink. Sometimes you can free up the valve by cleaning it or knocking it around. Easier to just replace it. They usually have them at Home Depot or any RV parts place.

I know your asking the OP this question because y’all is singular. If you were asking the whole forum you would use the plural “all y’all”... lol

Wow, sensitive...

Oh, I don’t know.. who do you mean by y’all? Read your post. Are you asking the OP or everyone following this post?

So if your asking all of us I will answer for me.. yes I use my exhaust fan when I use the bathroom.

I guess I was just making a joke being that I am a southerner and all y’all is plural to me...lol

I wasn’t talking to you. I was asking the OP. I thought I was being helpful. Apparently not.
