Kitchen sink drain

2008 HR 40PDQ, how does the drain from the kitchen sink in the forward curbside slide connect to the grey tank? Is there a slip connection behind the access panel below the pantry area? Seems there must be something special to allow the slide to extend and retract without breaking or stressing the drain pipe.

They do break and all were not plumed the same, i had to repair my sink drane this spring it had a swivel connection.
You can see how your drain is plumed by removing the side and rear under the sinl or you might can see what you want by removing the drawers next to the bath wall.

So is it a solid pipe? I can see a mount ring on the edge of the slide area seems it would break often if there is no slip connection.

mine uses white spa piping. It bends and moves when the slide is activated. There have been reports of the connections where the spa pipe and the black ABS pipe is connected fails. My connection happens to be under the fridge, but your's might be different.

That makes more sense, and yes the 08 40PDQ just has kitchen sink drain and electrical in that area. The fridge is on the roadside slide. Either there should be a flexible connection or some kind of dual lip seal, slip joint. POíS have put schedule 40 there and I know it way to stiff and will not suffice.

my fridge is curb side but not in a slide. It's directly aft of the kitchen slide. the plumbing goes through the cabinets and through a movable door that opens/closes as the slide moves in and out. The spa hose is about 5-6' long total so it moves pretty freely with the slide movement.

I can't imagine sch 40 pipe in there. I would think it would break the first time you extend the slide---at least that would be the case with my coach.

Thank You!

Looks like I have some work to do as it seems the fittings and elbow have been removed. I will learn more this weekend when I open it up for evaluation! Some one did a poor repair that I will undo.

It is schedule 40 and it is broken. It will be corrected properly.

Interesting! Yours doesn't look like the white Spa-Pipe in mine. In my 03 Dynasty (Chancellor model if that makes a difference) the spa pipe cracked right at the joint where it goes into the 1 1/2" drain fitting. So... the second time... (or was it the third?) when I re-fitted the pipes I installed a "No-Hub" fitting over the joint to reduce the flexing at the joint.. Time will tell if it lasts longer. [Note: I changed over the whole kitchen drain from ABS to PVC hoping it's a little less brittle.]

Did the repair today. Thanks for the insight! Not as bad as I thought it could be. This abomination was removed and replaced with the original syle setup.
