Need some help and suggestions on bathroom
We are full-time in our Airstream, which makes the following a little more difficult so any suggestions are most welcome.
We discovered a few months back that the Black Tank is damaged somewhere near the top of the tank. We haven't used the tank unless we're hooked up to sewer and only let it fill to a certain before dump it; this has been working without any problem. It appears the break or crack is at the top of the tank.
The bathroom was worked on at some point in the trailers life and part of the floor was replaced improperly. Instead of putting the plywood above the track it was put in below the track and the floor dips down a bit as you walk into the bathroom - this may be causing some of the problems with the BT.
The thing is that my husband and I travel for work and we're in the middle of a busy schedule, living in the trailer and don't have thousands of dollars for someone to fix this. We're pretty good do-it-yourselfers, but what are we in for here?
Recently the toilet began to act up a little too. The foot lever that closes that trap in the bottom of the toilet seems to hang up a bit and the trap now does not close all the way and the toilet rocks just a little. There's no leaks around the toilet though. IT's a china-bowl by the way.
We have not been able to find anyone who can explain or any information about how to drop the belly pan. I've read posts where people say "drop the belly" but don't indicate how to go about that. I've even asked directly and still no detailed explanation.
If we tear into this and it takes six months to complete [like the last time we tore into problems when we first purchased the trailer] we're sunk...so, anyone have any ideas?
