Greetings All You RV Drivers and Haulers,
The goal of this section is to take you window shopping and to give you a idea of the brands and products out there for our consumption. Since I’ve never used most the products, I can’t vouch personally for them. But I can sift through some of what’s written about a particular product, pass along some reviews and show you where you can go to learn more.
Sniff ‘n Stop
Although Sniff ‘n Stop smells pretty good to humans, it evidently emits an odor that keeps vermin away. Greg Gurber on Let’s RV.com reviewed Sniff ‘n Stop. He said “Valterra secured an exclusive arrangement to market Sniff ‘N’ Stop to the RV industry just a few months before I got my motorhome, so I picked up an RV kit to test. I am happy to report that after more than a year of use, I have never been bothered by any critters or other pests find their way inside the motorhome.”
Martin Smith reviewed the product on Amazon. He was the one and only reviewer. He said “Product did not perform as expected. I put the large container in the storage area, a small bag under the kitchen sink and a small bag under the front storage area. Had mice in all three areas, three weeks after installation.”
You can learn more about Sniff ‘n Stop or purchase on Amazon.
360 Siphon RV Vent Cap
It’s a dirty job but someone has to do it. But it doesn’t have to make you want to throw up when you empty your holding tanks. Jen Holt reviewed the 360 Siphon RV Vent Cap at LetsRV.com. She says “This vacuum helps eliminates odors from the source so they don’t invade your living space. The updraft that is created leads to an oxygen rich atmosphere, breaking down waste at a faster rate. You’ll be able to take a deep breath of fresh air when using the Siphon 360.” She goes on to give a good list of product pros and cons that you might find helpful. You can find additional testimonials on the 360 website and purchase there too.
