I have experienced an odor in my 2019 25'FB Airstream. It is coming from the closet which is over the septic tanks. I have notices the odor when the black tank is around 60% full. I believe there is some type of "check valve" for the tank's vent under the closet floor?! As of yet, I have not brought it to the Airstream dealer to inspect and repair.

Hello Paul83, Welcome to AirForums! We are glad to have you with us.

I have a 2013 25FB. I also had bad smells a few times in my closet area. I replaced the "air admittance valve" that is under the closet floor. After that, I had one more episode of smells, and then it has been good for several years.

In my trailer, the panel that covers the front of the area under the closet is a hinged door, with the hinge on the left. To open you pry it on the right side with a screwdriver or strong fingertips.

Good luck with finding your problem.

We're not exactly rookies but I learned something reading this. Inevitably, if you follow the AS forums long enough someone will post the same problem and you can reminisce and be the expert.
