TREK Septic Discharge Plumbing Issues

I recently purchased 02 28' Safari Trek. The discharge plumbing is prone to being torn off of the underbelly when navigating slight dips in the parks/driveways. When I back out of my inclined driveway the rear of the coach almost touches the roadway. As the discharge plumbing (discharge pipe and valves) protrude lower than the back of the coach they also come very close to the road.

The previous owner wiped the original plumbing away at the discharge/valve end. There is all new discharge plumbing and valves and they extend a few inches below the edge of the rear basement door. Upon examination I find that at most the entire discharge plumbing could be raised a few inches which does not remove it from the rear of the coach.

I think that if I was to re plumb & relocate the system by extending the length of the run moving the discharge end & valves away from the rear of the coach and re install it closer to the back of the rear wheel would solve the problem.

My question is if you have had this problem did you find another solution?

I had a 1995 2830 Safari Trek with the plumbing being as you described. Was never a problem, but the thought of it being so had crossed my mind.

I would suggest you pose the question on the Trek forum - a great group with a huge amount of Trek specific knowledge.
