Wolf's Roadtrek Motorhome Modifications

... and Other Stuff


Vent pipe cover


The Roadtrek vent for the black tank is terminated at the roof as an open pipe.  Whatever falls in, or crawls in, will end up in the blackwater tank.  My neighbor has two very large pine trees that rain down needles all year long.  Over the winter water falls into the tank.  It just does not make sense to leave that pipe open.

I solved this with two simple PVC products I bought at the local Home Depot.  One was an elbow and the other a shower strainer.  The shower strainer fits nicely into the elbow.  I coated it with Flex Seal paint.  I attached the elbow with some putty epoxy.  Problem solved.

Here are the pictures of the products starting with the final installation:
