Lippert's 360 Siphon Vent Cap Now Standard on Jayco Units

Mon Jan 23, 2017

148518918084957.jpgElkhart, Indiana - The 360 Siphon RV holding tank vent cap by Lippert Components, Inc. is now a standard feature on several 2017 Jayco-brand travel trailer, toy hauler and fifth wheel units. Jayco, a prominent RV manufacturer, has begun installing the 360 Siphon in Jayco-brand units including its Octane, Octane Super Lite, Designer, North Point, Pinnacle, Eagle and Eagle HT.

With an improved design, the 360 Siphon RV vent cap prevents holding tank odors from seeping into the unit’s living spaces more efficiently than ever before. The 360 Siphon’s patented design allows it to dispel holding tank odors through the roof vent before they have a chance to invade the RV living area. Workable in any wind condition, the 360 Siphon can only create an updraft, expelling odors and fostering an oxygen-rich environment to speed up waste breakdown within the holding tanks.

Jayco units featuring the 360 Siphon will utilize the product specifically for black water holding tanks, virtually eliminating the need for caustic chemicals, perfumed cover-ups and black tank flushes. With no regular maintenance required of the 360 Siphon, RVers will breathe easier and enjoy a healthier, odor-free environment, according to a press release. As awareness to the toxicity of residual gases created from RV holding tanks increases, many RV OEMs have been quick to provide a safe and dependable solution.

“Unlike many features, the 360 Siphon is not about being flashy or catching the eye of a potential buyer, it’s about improving the camping experience by eliminating odors that have been associated with RV camping for decades,” LCI Vice President of Sales Andy Murray says. "We’re very pleased to be a part of Jayco’s commitment to improving the RV lifestyle."

With Jayco’s addition, the 360 Siphon is now available on 63 product lines. For more information, contact aftermarketsales@lci1.com.
