I bought a 1985 Bigfoot
17' about 6 weeks ago. When I got it the owner said he had just replaced the water pump, and winterized the lines with antifreeze, etc.
Last weekend I had it out for the first time. Drained the antifreeze, filled the fresh water, and started to test everything.
The good news is that the toilet, bathroom sink/shower, and kitchen shower all run.
The really bad news is that almost all the water lines leak, and sprayed water all inside the trailer, inside the cabinet, under the bathroom surround, etc. I had water leaking out the little holes on the underside of the shell. Oh, and the grey water tank is cracked on the outside. I know now why he replaced the water pump. He didn't winterize the trailer previously, blew all the lines and the pump, and figured the pump would be obvious before selling the trailer. Sure, I'd like to choke him, but I guess I should have tried the water before I bought it.
So, I'm now looking at the daunting task of replacing all the pex lines in the trailer. It doesn't seem overly complicated, but I don't know how they're run, how or where or if they're attached to the shell, or even how to access under the kitchen sink. Do I really have to remove the furnace
to see under there?
If anyone knows of a walkthrough, a tutorial, a video, or a diagram for any of this you may just be saving my life.
