Any hardware store should carry them. I bought some and they were over $1 each.

The black water tank has a separate drain from what I can see. It is full of water and cleaner at the moment,no leaks. will drain it in the morning. The water from the shower came straight out of the small white pipe onto the barn floor. The pipe to the grey tank comes out of the white fitting ???

Weird, not something I've seen before. Does the blackwater come out of the black part? If so that would be cool as the white pipe would drain right into the sewer line when hooked up. Other than cleaning the shower you probably won't have water in it unless hooked up.

The air conditioner is 12 years old and even if I can fix it for now. I don't want it to go out on me while I on the road. How long do they usually last. Mine is a Coleman Mini-Mach.

The black water has it's own pipe with a valve and drain.
The black water does not come out of the black fitting. The only thing hooked up to it is the pipe going to the grey water tank and the pump.
The white pipe looks jagged as if something broke off. There is nothing to connect to it.

Weird to me too.

On a Scamp the toilet is sitting directly on top of its balck tank inside the bathroom itself.
Then the black tank output goes down and into a dump valve so it can drain into a sewer either with the grey or not depending on how many dump valves there are there?

The grey from the shower goes into the pump and then onto the grey tank under the trailer.The grey from the kitchen also goes into the tank and the tank output then goes into the dump valve manifold again unless they are 2 separate lines.

I have seen it both ways.

In order for the grey to dump onto the ground something is not connected somewhere or the dump valve is open.

The pic you show only shows the pump input but I can not see where the output goes if it goes anywhere at all?


Also is the bathroom in the front of the Scamp or on the side??????

The bathroom is on the front. The grey water tank and drain is on the back on the driver side.

It seems there should be something connecting the shower drain (small white pipe in black fitting) to the white fitting that has the pipe to the grey tank in back coming out of it.

It looks to me as though things are backwards?

The shower drain is what should be connected to the pump on one side and then another from the pumps other side to the grey tank.

From the pic the pipe connected to the pump looks to me like a standard shower drain fitting for this but are you claiming it is the other(black) drain that is the shower?

Maybe something got whacked and the shower drain is simply leaking and not sealed to the pump line?

The shower pan should be one piece molded and the drain the only way for water to escape it but if the drain is loose on the pan it could just drain from around the drain.

If the pump is not connected to the grey tank and/or if the pump does not turn on when running water for the bathroom maybe you have more than one drain issue from the shower?

There should also be a switch somewhere to start the pump.

It looks like your shower drain is missing the trap bowl. Look at your sink drain it uses the same type of trap bowl. Most RV places carry the drain traps.

Susan, what Eddie has posted the link to is indeed what you are missing - the trap bowl goes right under the floor drain. Then a hose should run from the trap bowl to the pump and then out to your grey water tank.

BTW I replaced the acorn nuts in my bathroom with Stainless steel as well. 5 years later still no rust and the shower does get used in my trailer.

I see it now, the white thing with the line going to the pump. I was caught up on what appears to be a white thing coming out of the black waste/black water pipe. I agree you are missing the bowl.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the help!!
Headed to hardware store today. Any chance they have the shower tray pipe or do I have to get it from Scamp?
I am very excited about doing this myself. Could not do it without you guys!
Thanks again!!
