Conditions weren't the best for studying past postings, I just didn't want you to insure more issues.

Thanks Sid, much appreciated. I hope you're having (or had) fun abroad.

I've done plenty of fiberglass stuff and will be incorporating some of that in this repair. My goal is to insure I don't have more issues, but I'm just a DIY kind of guy. Hopefully I'll muddle through.

Feel bad for Frank, we have camped with him and Gail and they are really nice folks. Seems like every problem imaginable has happened to him. Lets hope this one is the last so they can enjoy their trailer.
Casita uses mineralacs supported by threaded rod. The pipe hangs below the trailer frame

That's an interesting video Eric, thanks! I wonder if it would work with ABS? My fittings are on the outside of the pipe and look integral to what they are mounted to, i.e. no discernible joint.

Actually I have yet to even get to that point. I need to winterize the trailer tomorrow, and when I do need to figure out what, if anything, needs to be replaced inside. Certainly more work is necessary to get the tank back in and hooked up. I can think of things I'd rather be doing, but can't afford to hire it out.

Frank; that is the nicest offer ever and I really appreciate it. I get nervous using other peoples stuff so I'll pass on it. The Casita is in Syracuse and even though the sellers are camping friends their schedule is too busy for them to deliver it. Here's a little story that caused me to think of you, and I hope you get a laugh out of it. We bought a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab with the hemi engine. Waiting for a check to come from my 401 to partially pay for it. The deal was the dealer would install the brake controller, a Dodge item that is a direct plug in and a spot in the dash to mount it. This morning the salesman called, there's a problem, my truck isn't wired for the factory plug & play controller even though it has the 7 pin plug. But they can install some other brand controller for the same price but it won't fit the stock location. I was sweating for a minute thinking now what, but it looks like it will work out. I told him just don't wire tie it to the steering column, LOL. Did you ever resolve the controller issue with the Escape?

I haven't had a chance to get back to the Escape, but hope to over the winter. If I didn't have so many other things that needed to get fixed (wastewater tank isn't the only thing - ATV motor needs some helicoils in the block, log splitter quit running), I'd offer to drive over to Syracuse tomorrow and get it. Just put all new shocks on, new u-joints, all new brakes, new tires, only 112,000 miles on it!

This morning I went inside the trailer to remove fittings. On the right side I just had to remove a clamp and convince the hose to come off a barbed fitting, but on the right it was a bit more complicated, with 1-1/2" ABS coming in on top and the hose underneath. First I removed the hose, then figured if I cut 1/2 way on the pipe between fittings I could put a coupler in when I get everything done. So I get my saw in there and cut the pipe in the middle and when I'm done, surprise, surprise, the pipe falls out of the fitting. Shouldn't it be glued?

Here's what I mean - after cutting from the inside:



Here's a pic after removal showing the 1/2 of the pipe and the fitting it went into. No glue at all, just loose. Is that common, or just another ParkLiner thing?



Got my tank all cleaned up and ready to patch. These two shots show the crack from above and below.





I'm also winterizing the trailer, and thought this would be a good idea!



That's it for now. Got other stuff to do, and run out sometime today to NAPA for acetone and Lowe's for ABS fittings and glue if I can find it.

My PL is in my storage shed for the winter but I was able to crawl under it a bit to look at the tank for you. The ones they use now are not custom as mine is a simple rectangular shape. I was able to find a mfg sticker still in place for Icondirect.com. If your patch is unsuccessful you may want to look these guys up as the tanks run from $130 to around $300 depending on what fits your configuration.
The strap clamp seems to be quite different that what you show as well but I can not quite get to it for pictures.
Good luck and I hope this information is not needed!
Sid

Scamp uses a metal strap but they have a block between the frame and the discharge pipe that is curved in the shape of the pipe for stability. The other difference is my Scamps grey water tank & discharge pipe is the tank does not have the built in outside sleeve for the discharge pipe to fit into that Franks trailers tank has and what seems to have failed.

Thanks Sid. Funny you say your tank is stock. I sent Chandler a pic of mine and he said that is what they're using now!

Icondirect is where I'm getting the heavy duty "glue" stuff. I see they sell tanks and I thought about that, but I'd really like to figure this out so I don't have to install inlets on top. Right now they're right where they need to be. I'm still trying to figure out how to put it back together so it comes out easy. More to come.

I think Chandler can be very misleading...

No ABS at all at Lowe's, but did buy a couple 1-1/2" rubber connectors. Will continue the search.

No ABS around Albany NY whatsoever. I was able to buy the threaded plastic bushings I needed for the hose barbs at a local plumbing supply. It was funny - the guy at the counter noticed right away that the the pipe had not been glued to the fixture (see the 2nd pic in post #63 above), and was shaking his head and laughing. Looks like about the only place I can get everything I need (or want to try) in ABS is this place: Plumbing Supplies, Fire Sprinkler Supplies, Fittings, PVC, ABS, Copper, Fire Sprinkler Fittings, Accessories They're in Southern California, but their phone message box has not been set up yet. ?

Maybe tomorrow.
