So on my last camping trip, I discovered I had a water leak when I turned on the water pump and water just came running out of my cupboard! My bad, I didn't check the system before I headed out on the trip... Live and learn, right?
I think that I didn't completely drain my freshwater system before putting the trailer into storage last winter. I'm guessing the water froze and burst the pipe. It's just a bit ironic that the section of pipe that burst was inside the trailer, when a large part of the system is outside the trailer, lower than the burst portion gravity-wise, and not insulated...
Anyway, so I survived the weekend using bottled water, and now it was time to make my repairs. After all, I want everything working for the Lake Casitas Rally
The repair really wasn't complicated, a little hacksawing, a couple of trips to Home Depot, and less than $20 in parts. I did learn a few things too:
1. My Compact II's plumbing is C-PVC piping. Apparently this is able to handle higher temp water than normal PVC. Which seems interesting considering my trailer has no hot water heater. Maybe this was just standard for the Hunter siblings, since a hot water heater was an option?
2. The plumbing is super simple!
3. Just for good measure, I bought some extra fittings, pipe, and glue to have on board, just in case.
Granted, the water system is 35+ yrs old, and it all looks pretty original, and this is only the second repair I've have to make since I've had the rig. Not bad huh?
I'll post some pics shortly, been so long since I've posted, I have to review the procedure! hehe
