Flexible kitchen drain pipe fix

Seems I remember seeing an article on irv2 about a fix for the flexible drain hose on the kitchen drain. I have a flexible hose hooked up now, but would like to know what others have done.

I have a 2001 Executive.

Also, had a rv repair guy check the Insta-hot faucet. He said it was shot. While under the sink, I checked to see if there was any power to the outlet . There was not. Where would the breaker be for the outlet which is located under the sink?

Just a thought. Kitchen drain pipe is normally 1.5 inch.

Years ago my parents scrapped the laundry and got new stuff, Washer, Dryer and a suds/saver sink thing.. Well on the sink thing the drain pipe did not line up with the existing pipe from the old one so these being 1 1/4 inch and that being a common size of radiator hose and having a section of that size in the garage (flexible of course). Lasted many years it did.

I seem to recall seeing something about checking out the hot tub section. Some of the lines on there seem to be the same material as the original flexible drain line. Hope this may help, Happy Trails Bert

Here is a parts list with picture of my Kitchen Slide out plumbing, I do not know if it will match yours.

My kitchen is mounted on the passenger side. This is the cabinet that is at the end where the plumbing comes in and goes out.

I then have an angled cabinet with shelves and then the sink cabinet. The angled cabinet has a false back on it that hides the pvc drain and water lines.

Based on this it will be a bear to get to without taking part of the cabinet apart.

Good Luck

A bit of an older post, but going through this myself. I recognized the factory drain hose, but just couldn't place it. Being a former pool owner, it finally dawned on me, it's a damn pool hose. For my application, I'm able to use this:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o02_s00

Now, the ends on the pool hose was not the same diameter of the pool hose for our slideout drain (hose diameter the same, but not the fitting). No problem. Two of these, a little heat so the ends fit over the bards, and that's that.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o04_s01

I recommend you NOT try and build your own. The problem is nothing, and I mean nothing, really glues these types of hoses. You can buy bulk length hose and hose fittings (the reverse thread into the fittings), but they will eventually leak, regardless of how much pricey plastic-specific glue you use (whereas the pre-fabbed hoses with ends are heated welded together).

Short story: Years ago, growing up on the farm, We had a washer, Dryer and "Suds Saver" tub.. Well, Mother (and dad) Bought new ones.. Alas the drain pipes (1 1/4") did not line up... So we needed a flexable tailpiece to make it work... I went out to garage and got an old Radiator hose that was both the right size and used (Do not recall what it came off of of why it was there) Lasted over 10 years. When they bought a new farm and had a house built.. It came with them to the new house.

I used Scotch 130C high voltage electrical tape to seal the leaks in the flexible drains on our coach. This is a linerless self vulcanizing tape. Works great on a drain line.

The OP also asked about the electrical outlet for the Insta-Hot.
I also posted this question a while back because there was no power to the outlet and no breaker could be found.

Well, I guess I should read my manual now and then.

There is a switch for the Insta-Hot "hiding" conveniently just above the arm of the sofa on the side of the kitchen cabinet. On our coach there is a telephone plug there as well.

The coach designers must have had a good laugh when they put the switch so far away from the Insta-Hot to see how long it would take us to find it.

I assume it is a low voltage switch which operates a relay to supply AC from another nearby outlet to the Insta-Hot but I'm not sure.
I assume it is done for safety purposes.
Iver.

Just checked out that Insta-Hot switch.
It seems that it is a 120v switch.

Our flexible drain line cracked. I have to say that was about the darndest place to get into in our coach. I used the clear-ish flexible plastic hose that has a wire wound into it. That stuff if tough. I had access to it at my last work place as we used it for oil transport. It has worked great so far.
