Simple device virtually eliminates odors in RV from holding tanks
By Chuck Woodbury
The best investment I ever made for my motorhome was a 360 holding tank vent from Drainmaster. It almost completely eliminated odors inside my RV from its toilet holding tank. The roof vents that come standard on almost all RVs are worthless for the task. All they do is keep the rain and debris out. If RV makers truly cared about their customers, they would install 360 vents on all their RVs. Before long, Forest River will begin doing just that. Others need to follow.
Our RV roofs are constantly exposed to wind turbulence. With a standard vent, that wind often rushes down into the holding tank, forcing fumes and odors up into the RV's living space. Anyone who has RVed for long with a standard vent has experienced the stink when that occurs. The solution is for the pressure in the RV to be higher than in the tank itself. The 360 vent ensures that happens. I know from my own experience that the device works.
The first 360 vent involved moving parts. See a photo to the left. The new 360 involves no moving parts, but the result is the same -- odors are always forced out of the holding tanks -- black or gray -- into the air and away from the RV -- not into the RV itself. The process works equally well when the RV is parked as when it's rolling down the highway. An excellent video at the Drainmaster website shows how the process works.
Drainmaster has been a sponsor of our websites from time to time. I have visited its headquarters in Hollister, California. Last year at the big FMCA rally in Indianapolis, I met its inventers, who enthusiastically explained the years of research and experimentation that went into perfecting the device. The fact that there are no moving parts means it should last the lifetime of your RV without any maintenance problems. You might want to consider getting one of these for your favorite RVer for the holidays. At $29.75 it's a bargain. Learn more order one here.
