Those prices were from two years ago. Granted there are Airstream "repair" shops who take advantage of the name brand to hike up the prices, but I'm looking at the bill and the prices are what they are. I don't just blindly hand over money, because I have a supposed "status" symbol. The dump valve is indeed a Thetford. It's a shame that there are some people who unfairly take advantage of their customers and overcharge for parts and services rendered. Like I said, do your homework before you open your checkbook and get taken to the cleaners.

If you would please, we would like to know the name of the shop that charged $ 14.19 for a Thetford valve, and so would every other RV dealership in the United States.

We would like to buy at least 500 of them or so at that price.

The Thetford factory charges many times more than that to their wholesale distributors.

Facts are facts and installing a gray tank, when a trailer never had one, costs far more than a replacement black water tank.

Andy, charge what you want; it's your prerogative. This forum is for helping people, not arguing. If you want a Thetford dump valve, call Ron Amme at South Jersey RV. I believe you two know each other from back in the day.

I knew Bob Jayne who owned South Jersey in the late 60's and early 70's.

Bob got killed trying to land his Ercoupe plane in foggy weather.

His son-in-law was named Ron.

Not the same Ron.

After reading some of your posts I've changed my mind about removing the blackwater tank. I pulled it out today and pressure washed it. It will be rechristened a yellowater tank and replaced. A question for anyone who has rebuilt the back of their AS: Are there shower pans and fiberglass parts for sinks and such that work particularly well available? Or do we just kind of try to make it look as nice as possible using off the shelf stuff?

Some bath parts have been recreated by us.

Which parts are you interested in?
