sewer vent destroyed

Now that I can inspect it, I see the entire sewer vent is gone and what looks like spray foam was sprayed into it.....I can only assume this may/is drawing in water and running it down to where my hot water tank is and causing the wet floor?

I also inserted the dollar bill in the door and it pulls right through in several areas. I guess I need to order a vent pipe kit and door seal for starters. Are both jobs do-able? I do not have a rivet gun and don't even know if it's required for the vent pipe.

replacement vent

Hi Dan - I know Inland RV sells them "", Vintage Trailer Supply may also. You don't need a rivet gun for this. These are notorius for leaks. Search plumbing vent for installation tips.

Door seal can be purchased from any Airstream Dealer - can help you out there. Usually it's dropped shipped from the factory to you.

That looks like a plastic vent. I would suggest perhaps spending the extra money and get one of the cast metal ones....might last a bit longer. You would need to paint it to match...
