Black & Grey Drains ?

Have always been concerned how low the drain valves are slung under the trailer and the possibility of dragging them on uneven roads. Has, or is there, a guard that is made,or could make, to guard them from ground contact ??

I'm sure a welding shop could fabricate a shield to protect the plumbing. I'd stay off such rocky roads that would require them, you'd probably shake something else loose on a road so rugged that something would hit the drains.

The other strategy could be to use the type of twist lock fittings that join the slinky together to make the drains removable. That would keep them from being damaged by the tire alligators you might encounter on the highway.

Yup, a welding shop can likely fab up a rock guard to get the job done.

I have laughed at the drain support while on factory tour more that once. I made a guard for mine, see it in the mods thread over on OutdoorsRV owners. It gives that pipe a better shot in the case of a tire tread impact.

My old camper had something welded on to the frame at the back. I was essentially a "V" with the bottom point slightly rounded, they scraped along a couple of times starting or ending a steep slope.
