Voltage 3800 Kitchen Plumbing

Looking for advise, first post, and newbie...
My wife and I have a 2013 Voltage 3800, which we are generally very happy with...that said - We are currently out on a two week trip at a local camp and have sprung a couple of water leaks.

Had a local mobile rv repair company fix the first one, broken kitchen drain pipe but now i am seeing the black pipes in that area pull apart at the couplings. On this rig the plumbing for the kitchen sink is right next to the entrance door and what I think is happening is the pipes have no flex to them and as we enter and leave all the time, the "bounce" is causing them to separate..

Has anyone had this and are there any suggestions for a flexible fix?
I cannot believe they are that senistive to movement...

Thanks,
Tim & Linda Neill
Colorado Springs CO.

If your talking the ABS drain pipes then they should have been glued, if they were glued correctly then going in and out would not make them come apart.

The first guy replace an elbow pipe that completely broke at the bottom connection. While he fixed the original problem, he did not bother to look beyond that...so two days later there was another leak....the second repair company came out and found that when Voltage assembled the unit they made the angles to tight. He cut the straight pipe that goes to the vent? and installed a band clamp that allowed him to reallign the pipes for the entire kitchen drain system. Knock on wood it all holds together. It is amazing what you find when you start taking out the drawers and looking beyond the surface...end of story or just the begining...time will tell, thanks for reading and replying.

Hey Hitman007,
Yes, under warranty...
Tried my dealer, ignorned Email...typical.
Contacted the Dutchman regional Rep, Marc Hauser...Said he would get me reinbursed..Marc has always been responsive in the past. The dealership on the other hand...after they got their money...pretty much usless. That's OK, I guess they don't need my business refefrals.

It always amazes me how many RV dealers operate their business like a shady used car dealer. You would think the manufactoreres would require a certain level of service and customer support by their dealers but apparently the RV industry is like the wild west... no rules, just turn and burn units. I was very happy when the last recession wiped out many of the RV dealers. Too bad there are still a few bad apples in the bunch.
