Has anyone tried replacing the vent cap (toilet vent) with a 1-1/4" PVC "Tee" in order to have sewer gasses sucked out while travelling? I saw a bus on the road today and it had a Tee on the vent, I also know that there is a company selling a similar product that turns with the wind direction. Any thoughts?

First of all, there have been alot of conversation here regarding what actually causes the odors. Do a search as to the various causes. Now to your question, I dont think the tee will help any more than your existing vent cap does. I also dont think the one that moves around with the wind would always do whats needed.
My solution was the Lil Stanker as sold at http://www.rvupgrades.com But you must also make sure the other problems such as bad vacuum breakers etc. are not causing your odors.

The tee does not work when parked. It does not have a built in venturi so there is no suction. I installed the Xtreme Vent and have NO odors, I have used no chemicals for over a year, and the savings will pay for it. It has a lifetime guarantee, and if you change rigs, you just remove 2 screws and take it with you!! It turns with just a slight breeze and so it works when parked.

Just a note for anyone wanting to install the Xtreme Vent, check where your current vent cap is located and make sure there's clearance for the rotating "tail" of the Xtreme Vent. There are some Winnies with the black tank vent pipe too close to other things on the roof, and your new vent "tail" may not rotate properly.

Have had the RV-360 on both standpipes for over a year and a half. One of the best outlay of dollars I ever spend.

Best,

The Tee works! It particularly helps with the odors that sometime are occuring when going down the road. I have installed Tees on two MHs with good luck on both for that problem. You did not mention specifically what your problem is, however remember that driving with the windows open causes a slight lighter air pressure in the coach and can suck odors through roof vents.

I sure don't recommend the non-use of chemicals!

Hi Fla2RI,

Yes the vent "T"s do work. I installed 1½" sanitary "T"s on my vent stacks and the stink, while driving down the road with the window open, went away. They do act as ventures with the ends being larger for the slip fit. I didn't have a problem when parked, so the spinning action of the Xtreme Vent wasn't necessary for me. At 89¢ each, from Home Depot, it was worth a try.
