Waste Tank Ventilation

I am trying to increase the waste tank ventilation on my 2007 Surf Side 29A. There are 2 vents above the bathroom on the roof. Does anyone know if they serve different purposes? Or even if this RV originally had 2 vents in that location. They are only about 1 1/2 inches apart in a line front to back. Thanks.

I am pretty sure one is for the gray- have you looked underneath the rv or opposite the bathroom vent location inside for any clues? Just curious.

Venting

Anyone know which one is which? Is grey closer to the front and black towards the back? That would make sense to me, I guess if all else fails I can pull the cap and stick my nose in!!!!!!

Camco RV - Cyclone Sewer Vent - 40595 - Vents - Camping World

I installed the Cyclone last year, they seem to work, if not just look cool.

Sewer vent

That's what I am trying to do just not sure which vent to put it on. Did you have 2 vents?

We added 2 of the Camco vents to our Motorhome and it was the best $40 we have spent. We no longer have any waste tank odors in the motorhome. It doesn't matter if the tanks are full or if we're driving down the road and someone uses the toilet, or even opens a window.

Sewer Vents

That is exactly what I am trying to do, but because the 2 vents are right next to each other I can not put 2 Cyclones on as they will knock into each other. Does anyone know which is black tank vent and which is grey vent? They are lined up front to back.

The sniff test would probably be the fastest way- be careful going up and down out there!

Depending on how you might "treat" both tanks, the grey can smell worse than the black. If I were going to tackle this, I would take a good look at both vents to see if I could put some sort of a Y pipe on them and use 1 new vent. Height could be a problem, but cutting them down closer to the roof before adding a Y might work.

Can you put a PVC elbow on each vent and make an L on each vent to separate the vents enough to put a Cyclone on each vent?

You could always drag a hose up there, put water down one vent, and see which tank is filling up !

The front is the Black tank. If you want to put the cyclone on the gray tank there is another vent that is by the shower drain. I know these items because I did this a couple of years ago. Alvin


I too have a SurfSide 29A 2007
