1967

Still looking for dump valve replacement. have y'all found one? I'm also buying new angle iron to replace rusted/disinegrated angle iron. Andy said that stacking blue insulation foam would be OK. I also got a reply that indicated I would be smart to use chunks glued to the board to simulate original styrofoam for wasteflow out dump valve and heated airflow around the tank to resist freezing ( if we ever venture into cold) We are steel wooloing and zinc painting the galvanized box os that it remains in good shape!

Question 1967 safari

Hard time with thetford dump valve on 1967 safari 22''
I had to saw off the bottom 2 nuts(and bolts) to remove valve and now can't seem to replace them!
The bolts back up tight against the black tank and the valve holding assembly is glued on to the tank!!!
I may have to glue and clamp this assembly back on and replace the whole tank next time it has to come off !!! Looks like someone has already "sealed" my fate for me unless any one has creative ideas. The bolts are melded into plastic nipples so I can't really saw a slot to slide old screw out and new screw in. (or I would)
what type of glue is best for this white, non abs, plastic? I'm leaning towards CPVC (orange) cement although this gets "hot" and may melt some plastic. Will come to some solution!-thanx

price

Tod...I was shocked enuf at the price of the valve...$56, I think It was and someone told me a new tank was 422 so if I was you I'd keep working on that tank....does this inspire you?

I got it at Inland....I thought I'd told you but I'd written somone else...sorry...I'm getting my message boards and buddies mixed up.

I had some stuff that was supposed to be screwed together but was glued where the toilet flange goes into the box and we had to saw it...I hope we can glue it back. I sure don't want to buy a new box. I'd be tempted to get a flexible bag Like we had on our sailboat. I can't see why that wouldn do if you could get a way for the toilet to connet to it.

Question curbside table question

Lexxy-mine is not the dinnete model but has the full gaucho in front with the fold down table curbside.

I have a question about your curbside table. My 67 safari had the front dinnette and I hated it. So I removed it an built two new benches that pull into beds for my young children. But now I have no table. I would like to take the original table and mount it curbside under the window and have it fold flat against the wall when not in use. It does not appear that the wall frame under the curbside window will hold the table bracket. My question is how is your table mounted to the curbside wall.

thanks

Flash: Lexxy may not be on anymore as she sold the A/S. I owned a 'double' until last week and am now working on a '67 twin with dinette. The curbside mount is a little different in that the 'hinge' actually is a sliding piece that allows you to tuck it into a 'pocket' beside the gaucho.There is a magnetic catch to hold it to the wall once there. The fixed piece on the wall may be supported with extra framing inside the wall. I can try to get some pics from the new owner if you wish. The leg is also different as it needs to be a fold-up rather than the fixed one on the dinette.

Check to the right of the door - there should be a nameplate and the VIN will be in the center.
