Gas smell and P-traps


Seem to be having a problem with the camper. It is a 2014 Keystone Raptor. The problem is after taking a shower, there is an extreme sewer/gas smell that consumes the entire RV. The shower seems to trigger the release of the gas and you can smell it from the kitchen sink as well.

I researched and read about the P-trap, but that release of gas seems to come due to water evaporating from the trap. This would not be the case as water is actively flowing through the drain.

The shower seems to be the only thing setting off the smell. Washing dishes or running the washing machine does not.

Thanks for any direction advice offered.

One of your sewer vent caps have probably failed. It should be under the sink in the same bathroom. It only coat a few dollars and is easy to replace. I would replace it and also check for any obstructions in the vent on the roof. I had the same issue and after replacing it no more odor. Hope this helps. Here is a link to what I am referring to.
