I'm about in panic mode now, hoping we can find someone to make the fix before Wednesday.
Mel,

If the only place that the pipe is broken/separated, can been seen & touched as you described, should be an easy fix. Don't take it to the $120.00+ an hour RV shop for repairs. Once you post a pic, I can better understand the whole situation and I can work on it at CL. I'll bring some tools and stuff to work on it.

Larry

We have landed.... got a VERY late start but wanted to get away from th S&B.

Stopped at a Walmart in Mattoon IL, will visit DD, DGS and DSIL in am.



Thinking of stopping at Lamberts home of the throwed rolls for lunch as we pass thru.

You'll be a great help, if they can hold out till CL. Fellow mutants rally 'round!

For those who don't know, Ed & Jackie stopped by our S&B after Martin broke his wrist last spring. Ed fixed part of the slide topper that we couldn't do at the time. Above & beyond the call of duty and much appreciated!

Getcher catcher's mitt ready fer them throwed rolls, Ed. Them boys is pretty good.

Like Dwayne says. It should be an easy fix. Either with ABS connectors and a short piece of pipe with some ABS glue or a new P-trap assembly or a new sink yoke. Either way, not an expensive fix. Just need photos.

Now there's an idea!

Sikeston? We will be passing through there for 2 nights following the GC. Looking forward to using my baseball mitt again.

I can bring a chainsaw and sledge hammer, in case we need to nudge it or trim it shorter!

Mel - listen to Larry... and also Jeannies Dave is a talented fixit guy. Shades of First Ever GC when he fixed a plumbing issue of his own and one for Jim and Gunny (whom I will greatly miss this year).

Get a pic posted. And let these mutants show ya how it's done. Catherine's Landing in near supply places - Walmart - etc.

You are mutants - this can't stop you!

Tim - these are Texas mutants. They don't know the Arkansas plumbing standards.

Had that happen on a brand new MH, but at least it was under warranty. Look on the bright side, now you can wash dishes and not worry about the gray tank filling up.

Man of wise words.

============================

Mel, it's like the others have said. When you get to clear lake they can fix it. I can supervise. My fees are not that much.

Should we tell Wayne the GC is at Catherins Landing or let him go to Clear Lake?
Up for a vote!
