Black ABS P Trap, Galley Sink

I have a '79 Sovereign. The P trap for the galley double sink is black ABS. The nut attaching to the line going back to the holding tank is stripped and will not tighten. This section of trap is 2" whereas the other parts are 1 1/2". I cannot find anything at home repair or plumbing supply to duplicate this configuration. Help!

You can Get some pvc fitting to work. They make a glue that works with both types of pipe.


May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..
