Plumbing leaks

Hi, I have 2002 sprinter by Keystone. I've been living in it since February and have had so many issues with plumbing. Most have been pretty simple to fix, valvue on the toilet, frequent tightening of water lines, but today's leak has me stumped. It's the bathroom sink. The cold water line was leaking and seemed to be worse with the water running. I tried to tighten the hot water line and it seems to be stripped. It's also leaking at the drain. Can the drain be replaced? The bath tub drain is snapped making it unusable. I wonder if a previous owner had attempted to replace the drain!

I'm guessing you have one of two issues or maybe both. The coach wasn't properly winterized and you have a lot of damaged fittings and/or, you're not using a pressure regulator on a high pressure campground line.

Have you tried wrapping some tape around the fitting followed by a hose clamp or two. Some big bath towels would work wonders also.

The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

The sink drain should be a standard plumbing part and readily replaceable. A 1.5" drain, with or without a stopper and with or without an overflow, depending on the sink in your RV. Ditto for water line connections, though they come is a variety of sizes and types.
