Kitchen Sink Drain Plumbing Question

Poured some coffee down the sink drain this morning and watched it flow out on to the floor from underneath the cabinet. A quick look under sink showed the drain pipe disconnected at one of the joints.



From what I can tell it looks like the joint was taped and not glued. Is this normal? Perhaps it was done that way for vibration dampening?

Recommendations for repair appreciated.

It should be glued. For a temporary repair, get some multiple purpose pipe glue from Home Depot and glue that back. Use a drill and put and screw in the top of that fitting where you put the pipe back in. It normally wonít hold in a fitting that has already had glue in it. Hence the screw.

Note: I'm the only owner of this coach so it came from the manufacturer this way.

I don't think I would be overly concerned if it came that way or not. It apparently worked for a long time with just a friction fit. Add glue and reset it.

Sounds like floor jockey did 'dry fit' and forgot to glue that section
Clean up the joint (inside of fitting/outside of pipe), rough it up a little with sandpaper, ABS glue----Done

Do a 'pull test' on the other joints to check if they were also missed
Floor Jockeys scramble from rig to rig

Can you try and repost the picture, it doesn't show in the thread.


Mine had a small leak, the trap was loose from items hitting it when the tray was pulled in and out. I just resnuged it and all was fine. I also make sure nothing can hit the drain when the tray is moved in and out now.

After an hour of removing cupboard doors and interior stuff I got to the pipe. It was glued. The fitting was snapped in half. The other end was the also snapped off. Must of got brittle over time is all I can figure. It's a bear to get inside these little cabinets so I opted for the easiest and quickest fix. As you can see from the pics I used a couple of rubber hose couplers. Seems to have done the job. Time will tell.
