Today's projects. Water valve for the toilet (toilet would continuously fill with water), plastic slider panel for the screen door (cracked), and a wire shelf to add to a closet (additional storage and organization).

The old timer at the MH place even came out to look at the MH (by the way he gave me a complement on the old gal) anyhow he climbed down and looked for him self and shook his head and says boy that one I have never seen...
To the other poster I will check out Amazon but I see no part number on the old pcs. It needs to be 1 1/4 x 1 1/2 every thing I have found is 1 1/2 x 1 1/4 Or in won't screw onto the shower drain, or the end that connects to the sewer end don't have the nut to screw it to the line.
I am just baffled. I am not looking forward too 3 months of a CG shower this winter
Thanks for the help.
I think to remedy this I will need to rip the shower enclosure out and that won't happen till pigs fly..it looks brand new.
Tim
I give up, No shower in the 82 what a DRAG
I'll have to find a plug for the sewer line I guess
Future purchase,
I'd still like too know why the MH industry uses pluming unlike what is used in the S&B.

That would be a drag. I know it's not easy to work on and you said you can only get one arm in under the shower and I'm not there to see the installation. My suggestion, is it possible to change the basket in the shower so it would match the rest of the plumbing. It would take two people one in the shower the other under the shower. Don't know if that would work. Just thinking about it seems reasonable, but I'm not there.
BTW, What happened to your red Caddie convertible?

Back in the era your coach came from many plumbing items were shared with Mobile Homes. I would look in that direction rather than RV related. Another thought would be something flexible to "rig" you own solution. Farm supply stores like Tractor Supply have many different sizes of flex hose, or even an automotive radiator flex hose.

Edit
I got a bunch of hits on Goggle on "hose adapter 1 1/2 to 1 1/4"

I found my 15 Amp breaker for my power plug to the coach at the house tripping and started to check for the problem and I found it.

I went to the power bay and on going to unplug, found that my 10 ga. power cord plugged to the 30-15amp reducer was melted together. Could have been catastrophic!

I watched a video on RV Travel that mentioned the small reducers as inferior. Now I know it to be true. I went out and purchased a 30-15Amp Camco "dogbone" one and everything is fine.

(This is a "quote" from Dogpatch.)

My advise, if you've got one of these small reducers....get rid of it!!!



I took his advice and bought the Camco 20 to 30 amp. pigtail

I picked up a new to me pair of Honda EU2000i generators, parallel kit and the extended run tank.

Going to be putting a Honda EX4500 up for sale soon if anyone wants it!

Got rid of the crappy RV range in my fifth wheel and installed an apartment model free-standing unit in it's place.

Premier 20 in. 2.42 cu. ft. Freestanding Battery-Generated Spark Ignition Gas Range in Black-BAK100BP at The Home Depot

Still need to stain and varnish the trim boards, but is a nice improvement over the magic chef the Bighorn came with.

Bought a NOCO Genius charger for my chassis batteries. I have an Echo charger which seems to work alright for charging my coach batteries, but I'm tired of drained chassis batteries cause something's up with the Echo charger. A new Echo charger is $150. This NOCO is $76 and has a 12 step charging process at 7.2 amps.

Hey Spritz,
I don't know if I will be able to help but I'd like to try. I know of a small hardware store here in Indy that has all kinds of older odd stuff (been in business for years...). They might have something the big box stores don't. They also have old guys (like me) that can figure out workarounds to make stuff fit.

Now, let me get this all straight. You need the pipe from the P trap to the sewer line. Is that the one that looks like an elbow with one really long side? Is it plastic or metal? Which end is which size? Which is male (with threads) and which is female (slides into the other pipe)? Do they use the common type of tapered washer and you tighten the nut down? Let me know this stuff and I'll see if they can figure out something that will work for you.

Someone recommended trying Amazon, well guess what, I order a p-trap from them and between the complete trap including the strainer that they sent and some parts I didn't return I WAS ABLE TO GET THE CORRECT P-TRAP .
I am sooooo happy beyond belief
I can install tomorrow. I can't wait to try it out. I'm telling ya I am soo happy.
Not sure how to use the shower but I am sure you would have to turn it off as you lather or I will run out of Hotwater And fill the gray tank


As for the 64 I still got her, I went to change the thermostat 2 weeks ago and snapped both bolts off at the housing I kept spraying a product the guy next door gave us on the threads, I have never heard of it but it worked after 3 days of a shot twice a day I turned it forward and then back like a 1/2 of a turn and after maybe 15 minutes I got one out and then the other... Then the guy next door told me he thought that the Fan Clutch wasn't working so after a few days hunting I found one that is for a chev but it fits and does the job.
We put a couple hundred miles over the weekend and no problems and no leaks.
Here is a pic at my brothers place on Sunday.
Thanks for asking.
And sorry for going overboard but I am a very happy camper...

Thank you sir for the offer it was really a pain to find the correct parts the part that goes to the shower drain is 1 1/4 and the end that goes into the sewer line is 1 1/2. I found everything and tomorrow I will take pic's of the problem child!!!! And I will take a shot at the space I have to get into.
Thanks again everyone.
Tim

Do you have a PVC supply house in your area? In Maine, we have Portland Plastic Pipe. This type of supplier has fittings and adapters for all sizes and schedule PVC. Scan the Yellow Pages for the nearest city to you, or ask a plumber if there is one. PPP loves to help figure a problem like this.
