We've been conjecturing if this is possible and if so does anyone have pictures of the inside of the wall during a repair?
The reason we think it's broken (and I could be wrong that it's a black tank vent!) is that when we've snaked the drain going in from the bathtub drain, we can hear the snake turning around inside the wall!
How is this possible?
Thanks so much in advance...
The black tank vent pipe goes up thru the wall.
Your snake more than likely, has entered it instead of the pipe that goes to the tank.
Also, take the sewer vent pipe covers off.
You will find the gaskets horribly cracked, as they only last about 5 years or so.
That allows rain water to come in around the black pipe and down into the walls. It also can allow sewer gases, to enter the trailer.
