Pipe Connection from Kitchen - Maybe Old Info
All I was present when a fellow alpine owner was having some work performed, and the tech found a leak where the kitchen flex pipe meets up with a rubber flange which goes over the ABS drain line. Both clamps were loose at each end of the flange, and allowing water to leak onto the floor under the slide. So, I went back to my coach, and low and behold, my clamp was lose as well. But to my good luck, there had not been any leakage yet. I believe the moving of the slide causes this connection to get lose over time depending on how much the slide is in/out. I was able to turn the screws on the flange by hand. My suggestion is for all to check this connection.
This also may be old information, if so sorry, but if would be handy to have it out there again just to remind the newer owners who might not know. I did not over tighten it because I did not want to crush the ABS pipe.
