Dwayne, believe it or not nobody on Vancouver Island has the Tee you told me about. I called my step son (plumber) and he says he has one of the original Tees that is in Gracie and will be here to fix it ASAP. Strange thing is I forgot I have a plumber in the family.
Thanks for the advice.

R U an RV Mutant too?

Timster ... On the road yet?

You caused us to rethink our route, for which I think we thank you. 😳 We are going past Prattville, on 82, but not up to Memphis. Wish us luck going across through Winona. Might look for a Cracker Barrel to overnight.

Hope the house battery holds up!

Safe journeys, all who motate and mutate today.

PS: So far the road (US82) is fine, after a bit of a bumpy start.
Over the river
And through the woods
To Redux we will go!

Mel & Kate's plumbing fiasco

One of the problems I have is that I cannot budge that white grey water pipe. I mean, it won't move. I tried pushing it back toward the black pipe (the one from the sink), but it doesn't budge. I have no idea how anyone ever got it connected to the black pipe in the first place! It must've been tighter than grandma's girdle!

The photo of under the sink shows the black sink drain pipe going through the thin wall, which separates the under-sink area from four drawers. The plumbing is behind the drawers. There's also a panel to the left of the drawers that I removed to reveal more of the plumbing.

I await the advice of many wise ones.

Mel

GC1.2 Redux RV Repair Team. Just spoke to Mel... she is fixin' to post pics of the offending pipe. It's the sink drain pipe to the gray water tank. No brainer... paper plates and dishes in the shower... lol.

I have assured her and Kate that there will be a line of mutants repairing and supervising. Also probably a good idea to have some Pina Coladas on hand....

Mel & Kate,
Have no fears regarding transportation to WW or CW, or wherever. Besides our car there are many more that will offer rides.

Looking at the pictures it looks like the lower left picture is the major culprit that broke away from drain. I'm not sure what the top right picture is unless it is the end of the white hose and it somehow got broken. I'm going out on a limb here and saying that there will be many that can fix that, and I'm still available for supervising.

Kate and Mel's plumbing fiasco

Most of the pictures are on page 2013. Here's one giving the view from back a little bit.


Oops! Picture is on it's side! The vent is supposed to be the bottom of the photo.
Can somebody flip it, please?

Kate, regarding picture 3 of 4:

Do any of the drawers hit the white pipe when they are in place and closed?
If they do, then the pip does need to be re-routed to the back side of the drawer.

If they don't then I suspect that the black pip will rotate to meet the white pipe, but that is only if they stayed true to most drain systems and (old tyme engineers) did not glue the pipes in place.

The piece with the chunk out does not appear to be the problem. You can see where the line is when the two pipes were connected (no glue). Check to see if the drawers clear the white pipe. If they do, GENTLY see if you can rotate the black pipe at any of the elbows.

Questions: Where does that straight pipe under the sink come from? It also drains through the separated pipe.

Run the bathroom sink and see if water comes out the black broken piece. Run the shower and see if it comes out the broken piece. If any do, don't use - the experts will fix at CL. (Not Clear Creek)

To Redux we will go!

Vicksburg MS has a great rv park at Ameristar Casino. Not much between there and Hot Springs. McGehee has a tiny WMart bad parking lot,Dumas has no Walmart.

We have stayed at the casino before when too long to drive in up. Jackson MS has places too but i would stop before. Over river is Talulah LA. No real good place there.

The Pina Coladas will be a-mixin' whilst the Mutants are a-fixin'. (Oh, and some beers on ice, too!)

Wayne, just the edge of the end of that white pipe was resting on the drawer runner when I pulled the drawer out. I'm about to go back out to the coach now and will check, but I don't think the drawer will go in all the way with that pipe going through the space. When I was trying to push the white pipe back toward the black pipe, it just popped over into the drawer space.

If they don't then I suspect that the black pipe will rotate to meet the white pipe, but that is only if they stayed true to most drain systems and (old tyme engineers) did not glue the pipes in place.

The piece with the chunk out does not appear to be the problem. You can see where the line is when the two pipes were connected (no glue). Check to see if the drawers clear the white pipe. If they do, GENTLY see if you can rotate the black pipe at any of the elbows.

I'll let you know the answer to this one in a bit. (Forgot to mention the busted spray nozzle on the wand by the toilet. Going to CW to get a replacement nozzle right now.)

Run the bathroom sink and see if water comes out the black broken piece. Run the shower and see if it comes out the broken piece. If any do, don't use - the experts will fix at CL.
I'll check the shower and bathroom sink in a few minutes. I'll be back here in an hour or two to report my findings, and hopefully tell you that I found a replacement spray nozzle and attached it.

(Not Clear Creek)
Thanks a million, everyone!

It is better to cross at Vicksburg rather than Greenville. greenville in yucky driving. We always come over then north at Talullah. Easier drive. Unless you are too far up and have to. Younger son went to college east of Winona. In Starkville MS. Traveled that way much. BTW Dumas is best left in the rear view mirrors.
