2006 Discovery 39V sink drain

Hi folks, my sink on the full wall slide is missing the flexible hose that goes from the coach to the slide. Its 35" by 1 1/2 as far as I can tell. I dont see how I would be able to access the coupler on the coach side. Does anyone have any tips on doing this or alternatives?

Thanks

Just yesterday, I replaced the hose in our 08 Mountain Aire. The one I took out was about 24" long; it should have been about 36" long. When the slide retracted, the hose snatched off of the stationary fitting attached to the coach.

I'm guessing that maybe a previous owner may have had the hose replaced but the tech had no idea what to do and cut it too short. The result was that our sink drained directly into the "bilge". Water would flood the underfloor of the slide and dump water into the bays. Total mess. It's possible that it left the factory that way, but there is no way to know.

So, the answer to your question/problem is that Home Depot and others should have the hose. It's 1.5" ID and 2.0 OD. $4.95/ foot. A spa/hot tub dealer should also have it.

It's a devil to access in ours and probably just as bad in yours. Ours is behind a thin panel beside the sink area. That panel hides the cable loop area. The cable loop allows the slide to move without pulling on the wires and cables. At best it's very difficult. I cannot describe the worst.

I'll stop this post here. Please feel free to follow up; I'll help any way I can. My laptop tends to reboot at random, so I try to keep it short (ish).

sink hose

This is what I worked with. It's fine now.

The photo labeled 0642 shows the hose detached from the stationary end.

The others show the cable wrap and the fittings where the hose drains the kitchen sink on the slide.

Photo 0642 is showing correctly oriented' the others are rotated 90 degrees CCW. Why, I don't know, sorry about that.

I got the hose from Home Depot. The fittings I used came from a plumbing house, not HD or Lowes. Those fittings have a barb that fits into the hose. Hose clamps keep the hose secure.

Good luck, and keep in touch.

Tom

Thanks for then info guys. I spoke with fleetwood and mine is actually a telescoping pipe. The pipe connected to the slide is 36" long with o ring type seals and goes inside the coach mounted female section . Not sure where mine went (bought rig last week) but this seems like a better solution than these curling and straining hoses you guys have.

Well I finally have the drain repaired. The old telescoping piece was stuck in the tube going to the tank. I dislodged the rubber coupler on the grey tank when yanking the old tube out. The new tube promptly leaked at the grey tank which is under the bedroom. Luckily there is an access cover under the carpet so I gorilla glued and clamped the coupler. The telescoping design seems to work ok but will require periodic greasing.Click image for larger version
