Repaired would be broken or leaking plumbing. Replaced would be the cheater vents under the sinks.

Sorry for the ambiguous post.

What I was trying to explain, (without a long dissertation), is this:

If/when everything is working properly, you will NEVER smell sewage inside a RV.
If you DO smell sewage/waist water in your RV, either:
1.) Something in the waste water system needs to be
...(a toilet seal, a admittance valve, a cracked pipe or P-trap, a plugged vent pipe, etc.)
2.) You're doing something wrong..... (like running a vent fan while flushing).

Is that "un-ambiguous" enough?
