kitchen drain leaks

Well I am a newbie here. I have a 24' Fleetwood Southwind 1985 MH. I have a leak in my kitchen sink drain, somewhere close to the sink but it goes out to the right and not sure where it runs..maybe behind the water heater or stove...any advise on how the drains route on these. Thanks

Do you know where your gray tank is? Chances are the drain pipe is taking the shortest route there.

Kitchen Sink Leak

Before you take the drain apart take alot of time in trying to locate the leak. Besure to check the sink basket drain. We had a leak on an Allego Bay and the plastic had cracked in the threads and there was nothing wrong with the black ASB pipe.

If there is a leak at a joint in the ASB pipe and it is not cracked. The leak could be repaired by just cleaning the area of the leak and using several coats of the black ASB glue.

Best of luck

Put the basket in. Fill the sink. Check under the basket using a paper towel (it will show the moisture). If it is wet it is probably the seal between the strainer and the sink. Pull the basket , replace the plumbers putty on the bottom side of the basket and re-test.
