Georgia reno of 2001 Scamp

I have posted on other threads, but since it is apparent my 2001 Scamp will need more than a good clean and some new cushions. I thought I would start a new thread to post pictures and ask questions as I go.
It has been raining in Georgia since I picked up my Scamp. Thankfully it is dry in my husbands barn.

Today, I cleaned the shower and water came pouring out onto the floor. It looks like a cap or something is missing. It has a huge grey tank and I can see pipe running from the shower to it, so not sure what is missing.

Second, the air conditioner (Coleman Mini-mach) doesn't work at all. Since it is much needed here, what would you guys recommend I replace it with??

Thanks for the help! Pictures soon.

Susan H.

Also, the acorn nuts in the shower are rusted!! What should I replace them with so they don't rust again. I already have to replace several rivets, so that part isn't a problem. Just don't know why they would put something in a shower that rusts.

By floor I'm assuming you mean the barn floor under the Scamp? Is the blade valve closed for the grey water tank? Also the shower drains to the grey water tank by what looks like a garden hose. Make sure that is connected.

The acorn nuts are not replaceable unless you cut off the rivets that they attach to. Surprise surprise they are not threaded to anything. I found out when I wanted to change mine.

Rusted acorn nuts, ugly... how about some paint? Like a rustbuster kind. I'd recommend POR-15, but that would be ridiculous for a couple of bits of rust. Maybe a Rustoleum product and a small paint brush?

Air conditioner may be fixable. Start out by checking if it has power to it. May be some corroded connections. I had that problem with an A/C unit that was on my daughters popup.

Which 16' layout do you have?
On certain layouts the grey water is pumped to the tank and not gravity feed so that may have a bearing on whats happening?

Also before buying a new AC or anything else for that matter try dragging this trailer to a reputable RV place and letting them look it over,might save a lot of time and money?

I second the AC thing. They don't usually just go out. Eventually they don't cool as well but that can be fixed with a recharge. If nothing is happening check fuses, etc.

Something seems to be missing? There is a pump.

I was going to replace the rivet and acorn nut, just wanted to know if anyone knew a rust proof alternative.

Stainless steel acorn nuts. Very expensive though.

The black ring with the white 'pipe' in the middle is the shower drain.

I believe that is the aforementioned waste water pump. I've never seen one before. The other thing is the black water/toilet outlet. It doesn't appear to have it's cap but I hope that is not your problem.
Is there a line that runs from the pump back to the grey water tank?
