This little unit is great. Redirects with the wind doing away with the every now and then smell. They only come in white, but if you get plastic paint they are paintable to match. It does not affect the rotation base either. I painted my black to match the other components on my roof. Great little device. Works very well.

Ordered to replace the vent camp on my motor home. Was very easy to install, but haven't had a chance to see if it really works. It should work much better than the one that came on it. I would recommend it.

I didn't want to scrape off the old caulk. So, I cut the three legs of the old black cover. There was just enough pipe above the old shield to fasten the Cyclone. I didn't have to mess with caulk. We won't know until next week how much better our motorhome will smell. I just hope a low branch doesn't attack it.

Even though I have a 2014 motorhome, they still use the old style cap sewer vent covers. I removed the old cover (1 screw) and used a razor blade to smooth the surface and installed this in less than 10 minutes (including going up and down the ladder)

Great product, easy to install! I tried everything before I found this product, cleaning the tanks with orange cleaner and laundry soap, still had an awful smell while driving. Installed the cyclone vent and no problem!! We even had high winds while driving 60 mph and the cyclone was still secure to the vent pipe!! I would highly recommend them!!!

Normally products never work as well as it's advertised. This sewer vent is the exception. Before I installed this vent I was getting sewer smells when we were camped, parked, moving or stored. I tried driving with the windows open and closed. I sealed the sink drains. I poured vegetable oil into the toilet to form a seal. I kept the roof vents open and closed. I used twice the normal amount of black tank additive. Finally I installed the Cyclone vent and took it out for a 2 week trip. Neither my wife nor I smelled any odor during the entire trip--absolutely NONE. We were ecstatic. It was a hassle removing the old vent, taking off the old sealant, drilling the mounting holes, etc but it was well worth it.

Depending on location of Sewer Vent


0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
June 24, 2013
Our Cyclone Vent is located in very close proximity to the Primary AC unit. One day after a wind direction change, positioned the exhaust port directly in line to the AC unit. We started to smell an odor inside coming from the AC. We had to turn off the AC and open windows for the night. The next day I did a black tank flush, the winds changed also and then no more sewer smell. Our issue could have been caused by tank needing a flushing out and or the wind direction change which caused exhaust to be directed into our AC air. I would consider this when putting on roof.

I purchased a used coach and when my black tank was empty there was little or no tank odor. However put a couple of days of use into the tank, hit the road and the smell was unbearable. We tried everything, and the I remembered seeing this vent in a camping world ad. I went online ordered it, received in 3 days and immediately installed it. All odor is gone, tank can be full or empty and the result is the same-no bad smells period. If you have tank odors and you have done everything else to eliminate the odors, buy this vent, cuz it works, period!

We bought a new 5th wheel and the sewer vent a was very short. When we flushed the toilet and the air conditioners were on, the sewer odors were drawn into our rig. The gases could not escape because of a design flaw. It was awful. We were told on a RV Forum to switch to the Cyclone Sewer Vents........We did and our problem is solved. No more sewer odors....great product. Very very easy to install.......

Love this item, we had it professionally installed and before we had the cyclone, we would sometimes get a little odor from the backdraft in the bathroom into the motor home while going down the highway. We drove 2 days before arriving at our destination after having this installed and had no odor whatsoever.

Works great at eliminating those pesky odors in the RV. I've discovered though, that one must remove it when traveling. While traveling into a 30 MPH wind in SW Kansas it blew off,leaving only the screwed on stanchion with the metal pivot rod bent over. If not for that I would have given it 5 stars.

My Simple Review - No Bad Odors


2 out of 2 people found this review helpful.
November 02, 2010
I was wondering how I was going to review these things if they worked, because unlike so many others when I made the decision to upgrade it really had very little to do with bad odors. The good news is that I made the upgrade all the same - as part of changing out the toilet and a few of the other roof vents - and the Cyclone's seem to work pretty well. They certainly haven't changed things for the worse and in my mind, with an older RV, that's a good thing.

I had sewer smell in my old RV and just lived with it on my short camping trips by always dumping before moving. I was disappointed when my recently purchased RV had the same problem. I decided to try a vent. It worked perfect and easy to install. Highly recommend. I am going to put a second one on the gray water vent also, as I've experienced one incident where water must have drained out of a trap during driving causing some odor.

Vent hints

July 04, 2009
For those who can't determine gray water vent from the black water...Put this on the one that spells like your rig at highway speeds before your put this on. If you still have the smell, then you confused the smells of gray water vs black water and can swap them. And if you still can't figure it out, swap the vents at the gray and black tanks with a cross over and you won't have to relocate this part and have entirely too much time on your hands.

Installation

July 03, 2009
Not sure yet how it will work, but the reviews indicate it does. Awful stink last year while in Montana in July, that's why I bought it. I had to wait until I got home to install it - not exactly a field fix job. I had to remove all the Dicor sealant around the old vent cap, then I had to split the PVC connector that was glued over the main stack, before I could attach the Cyclone. It's not necessarily as easy as the instructions claim, but if you are reasonably handy, it's a fairly simple task. You can mount it fairly low to the top of your rig by sliding it further down the stack - as long as it can swivel and there is room to drill the pilot holes for mounting (with the flange pushed up out of the way). Some silicone to finish up and then some Dicor around the base the next day. Even with all the extras I had to do, the whole job took no more than 45 minutes.

(Newbie Alert: Read the directions & get all your extra supplies before you tear your OEM vents apart.) I recently bought this (buy 1, get 1 free at CW) after a 5 day camping event left our bathroom reeking like a blackwater tank. I flushed the tanks really well and installed the first one on the greywater vent (better to screw that up I figuired). It was the first time I had done any improvements my new 35' Class A. I didn't have the silicone caulk or gun, so the next weekend I ran back to CW & got it. I started as the sun was setting; It took me 15 minutes on the first & about seven on the other. I was back in the house in 25 minutes! I'd suggest bringing a bottle of water and silicone (septic handling) gloves so you can wet the gloves so you can smooth out the silicone from the caulk gun. We have gone camping three weekends since then and had two family cookouts (we use the RV as a base station). I didn't get a chance to dump the tank last weekend (about 1/2 black & 2/3 grey in each 41 gallon tank) and we've now had a 4 days of 85-95 degree highs. Between the Cyclone Vents & the Orange drop-ins, nobody has smelled a thing! Overall, it is a cheap and effective product and easy to install.

We had purchased a used towable this winter, and it has had a very bad sewer smell (the previous owner didn't clean out the tank very well). I purchased this vent after reading the reviews, and I am VERY happy to say that after 24 hours of the trailer sitting in my driveway, the smell is gone!! The installation was very easy although I did have to modify it very slightly to fit my application. I think it took me longer to gather my tools together than to do the installation. I cannot put into words just how happy I am with this product. I recommend this to anyone who doesn't want to smell their tank anymore.

After suffering the smells of outrageous fortune in two motorhomes the last 10 years, we got a Camping World Cyclone Sewer Vent. Long story short, it works as advertised, no smells wafting in to the living quarters at inopportune times. The only misgiving I had was what I considered to be the somewhat flimsy construction of the unit. BUT it has held up well in all kinds of travel and wind conditions so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will continue to do so.

This vent completely eliminated potty odor caused by the vacuum effect when traveling with any coach/cab windows open in our Class C. Its made to install over the black plastic vent pipe from holding tanks. The single improvement would be for it to come with a flange that would snap into standard round vent cap receptacles. Nonetheless, I am completely delighted, and it was the source of much attention from follow travelers this month on a trip in British Columbia.

These vents are well worth the money. I installed them on the black and grey tanks. It didn't take long to notice the difference. I just removed the old vent covers and added a coupler and short piece of PVC to extend them up from the roof about even with the top of the A/C unit. I didn't see any need to remove the old vent flanges either. I made sure my trailer was level before installing them and then made sure they were vertical so they can rotate freely. Caulked every joint too.

The Cyclone works great! Really helps the control the odors. The instructions say to remove the old vent to install. I actually just removed the vent cap, trimmed it back a bit and slipped the Cyclone in using the existing vent cap as the "ring" around the Cyclone. Screwed it into the vent pipe and siliconed everything. Have had no issues and it made the install a lot easier!

We're on our second Cyclone Vent. First one wiped out by low branch. We purchased a new travel trailer two years ago and could not completely get rid of the tank oder in the trailer, so decided to try this roof vent. The oder was completely gone all the time!!! Very easy to install. Just watch out for those low branches with a tall trailer.
