New 2003 17’ Casita, Liberty Deluxe

We have had our new Casita for three weeks now. Several issues have come up that I felt needed to be taken care of by Casita. Issues from critical to frustrating.

I called Casita’s service department this morning and talked with Jay. Absolutely a gentleman and very good at listening and understanding my problems. He came up with an aggresive and resonable program to fix all my needs.

Things I need fixed.
*****1.**Brakes don’t work. One side locks up and the other does nothing.
*****2.**Awning does not close and latch.
*****3.**Gray water drain is running uphill, will not empty.
*****4.**Bathroom door leaves a gap on the hinge side when closed
*****5.**Misc. little nit picky things.

I have been authorized to get an estimate from my local Bubba for the repairs.

I’ll keep you posted.

2003 Casita

Bummer, Michael. Sorry this had to happen to anyone and expecially to you. Casita will surely come through (as they always have) but it's still a major bummer. Regards to Lori.

plumbing

Michael:

That hanger clamp on the black pipe looks lower than mine. There's barely room on mine for two nuts between the hanger and the frame cross member. They may have had to angle yours further down to match up with the grey pipe??? My grey piping runs about level with the bottom of the grey tank, yours looks much lower.

However, it appears that your grey tank will have no problem draining into the pipe, if only you can get it to the outlet from there.

Have you checked to see if the 3" outlet tee is lower than the bottom of the grey tank? Perhaps it is. If so, the only water retained will be in the pipe, the tank should drain.

On Casitas, the way the grey tank plumbing exits the rear of the tank, then forward to the tee, I don't think any of us can get a 100% drain unless ya pick it up and shake it. :)

Jay has always been exceptionally helpful. He listens, responds, and is very knowledgeable.

Michael ... maybe Casita intentionally left the large gap on the bathroom door for you, so that you would have extra ventilation for when you use the bathroom.

Not saying you need the extra ventilation.

Keep us posted on your local Bubba's fixes.

I would think Casita could send a piece of bathroom door molding so you could have someone rehang it. (Don't know how easy that is, however).

Bath Door

My door has the same gap. I thought they were all that way. I don't see it as a problem.

I think Jana's is the proper acknowledgement I was after. Suz yours was more worshipping, a little further than I am prepared to go for a bathroom door.

So Jan where is he hiding, I tried to edit to insert and couldn't find him.

Jean, for now you can just copy/paste him from Jana's message. Petition the great and powerful webguy and he'll (probably) add it to our collection of stock smilely guys...


:sunny

To copy/paste, you do have to add the (img) (/img) tags to the code. (Replace parentheses with square brackets when you add the img tags.) :wave For more about the tags, check out the Help section (button at the top of this screen).

now take out the * and you have him, I hope

It works better for me to use the quote button. then copy what I want and back out of the quote replay. I have mine all saved in a word file so they are handy. :) not as quick as the forum ones, but versatile.

Like minds and all that, Mary :lol

Lori & I did a test of the gray water capcity. We filled the wate with 5 gals. and then openned the valve and emptied the tank as far as it would empty.

Next we filled the gray water tank with measured 5 gal buckets of water. We did this by pouring the water into the shower until the water would not go down in the shower. We put 26 gals into the 25 gal tank. I was totally surprised. The extra gal must have been the plumbing, etc.
the entire drain is below the holding tank and so it DOES empty OK.

Next, we added vinyl foam weather stripping to close the gap by the shower door. No gap left.

:)
