It would depend on access to the old piping.

My rig has a manabloc water manifold with separate hot/cold going to each faucet, so it has a lot of piping. Even still if I were to do this I think I could do it in ~4-5 days. Most of the piping is centered in the coach. Current piping is pex with the crimped ends. Due to limited space I would probably use a Sharkbite type fitting, more expensive but a real time saver.

So if the dealer has been waiting for parts for 6 months he isn't trying very hard. Most of the fittings would be in stock at any decent size plumbing supplier.

When you say plumbing do you mean all the pipes, sinks, water tank, toilet, etc in the RV?

Some RV appliances and component parts have experienced supply chain delivery problems due to the pandemic. Among them are RV toilets, sinks, and some other components and fixtures. If your upgrades/repairs center on these or similar items you could be waiting for... well, who knows?

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

What part of the plumbing is he changing out? "Plumbing" covers a LOT of territory. I don't think he would be changing out all of it!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

IMO this is a low priority job for the dealer, other higher paying jobs are first. Keep in mind the axiom "the squeaky wheel gets the most grease". I would begin phoning 2x a week requesting a status update. It will either get repaired or they will tell you to come get the RV.

I'm struggling to even imagine what "new style plumbing" might mean and why the "old plumbing" needs changing? Or why any plumbing parts would need to be ordered, since it's all standard stuff, most of which is available at any home or hardware store, or at a plumbing supply house at the worst.
