Gray Water Drain System

Does anyone know where a schematic of the gray water drain system might be found? I am trying to access the line from the bathroom sink to the gray water tank and am hoping I don't have to remove the shower.

You might want to list your RV model and year so others can offer any experiences or knowledge about your rig.

You'll need more access to the utility bay by removing the larger panel. From there you can see the full plumbing layout. It requires disconnecting all the things attached to the white panel and removal of the edges of the bin, strut connectors and the door. Once you've done it, it takes about 20 minutes. The first time is about an hour. Hopefully the leak is below the floor line. If not, you CAN see the drains behind the shower from the access to the shower valve. Yes, the one behind the kitchen mirror or tile opposite the shower valve.

My rig is an 05 40fdts. I'll take off that large panel to see if I can spot the leak.

Schematics for a 2006 34' are here on the ACA Tech Library
Those are going to be pretty close to your setup, maybe pretty exactly close. the length of pipe that has short 90 elbows on each end (p.n. 15048) straight above the dump valves runs along the baseboard behind the shower.

Thanks Mike and Tom, I really appreciate your time. Hope I can get tpo the leak in the vanity drain line without doing any more than removing the large fiberglass panel in the water bay.

You might see if it is easy enough to see behind the shower, from the kitchen, first. It might be easier to verify how the drain runs (above or below the floor) first, before removing that ~!@#$% panel in the utility bay.

But if you do, make it worthwhile and investigate everything...

I do have a drawing. It looks like the drain hooks up like the kitchen sink, with a flexible line for the slide. It does not hook to the shower drain. It looks like it hooks to the kitchen drain in the plumbing bay. I will be home today or tomorrow and can scan you a copy if you send me your email mine is tomkunst@charter.net
