2007 34' Kitchen Slide/sink drain problem

We just bought a 2007 34' Alpine Coach. I think the model is a 34fdd. In any case, it was thought the faucet was faulty and leaked at the dealer and they replaced the faucet. We found, however, that the connection from the sink to the gray tank broke. We think it's a bad design because the main connection is in the stationary part of the coach and the sink setup is in the slideout. with the slideout opening and closing the connection broke. Has anyone encountered this issue? If so, what was the long-term solution to ensure no future breakage? Do we need to remove the gray tank to replace parts? Take the slideout apart? Or is there a better solution than just letting the kitchen drain water flow to the ground?

Please take a look at this thread:

Galley Sink Drain Leak

There are 2 - methods for you to consider. Engineer Mike provided a detail explanation on how he would fix it. I just updated the thread with my ultimate fix. Regardless, it is a tight space in which to work and your 2007 cabinets are quite different than my '03 cabinets. Therefore, Engineer Mike's fix might be better suited to your coach since you both have closer model years.

If you're planning on fixing it yourself, I would suggest investigating the leak to the point of knowing exactly where it's broken and how you plan to work on it. I was able to start at the stand pipe and remove the original fittings along with 1/2 of the flexible PVC pipe. Mike's fix starts at the "break" point which could be dictated by how much access room you have. Good luck! It's doable but quite a PITA.

Thank you for the reply. I wasn't sure what to search for. Perhaps now we will be able to get this issue fixed!
