If you were getting fumes from your sink and tub, the p-traps were dry. Water sits in the traps under these items to block any gases from entering the trailer from the tank. The water will evaporate after a while. All you need to do is pour a few cups of water down each drain to prevent this from happening.

The vent in the bathroom was clogged. My husband vacuumed it out and he could then almost feel and smell the fumes going out. His tester borrowed from the citys gas dept. As far as the front goes, I will start cleaning and see if that helps. I hate we wasted 200$ on batteries. Cant afford it.
