Did you remove all the fixtures in the bathroom first?

Yes all fixtures & the lower wall skins.
There are three in the bath area on mine.
This is it coming apart.

Noticed where you live. Luckily, Out of Doors Mart is located in Colefax NC. They are capable of doing the work. It won't be cheap. But give them a call, and at least get a guesstimate. That MAY give you the incentive to do it yourself.

Thanks...I'm ready to start removing the interior of the bathroom but not really sure how to start. Does your bathroom look like mine (see pics) I'm not seeing any rivets to take out.

Suggestions/thoughts?

Thanks,

Pete

Looks like mine except for the sink and cabinet under it . Take lots of pictures for reference to help when you put it back together . Drill all the heads off the rivets holding the Art Deco parts and don’t force anything . After you get all the fixtures out drill the rivets out in the lower skin out and take those panels out . This will allow you to get to the bolts that hold the body to the frame down . Some may be hard to get loose. Then make your plan on taking out the plywood . Good luck and have fun . You can check out my tread , I documented this process but I had to replace all of my plywood . Blue

It would be easier to keep up with you build if you were to start one tread and put on it everything so we could go to one place and watch and help if you need it . We are here to help .

removing inside panels

It has been suggested that I put all my questions into a single thread and I'm going to start doing that.

To date I have:

1: removed the rear belly pan
2: dropped the black tank & galvanized box that holds the black tank
3: discovered rotted floor
4: removed the toilet
5: found a replacement holding tank at INCA Plastics and will place order soon

Now I'm on the inside starting to remove the inner panels, etc. I've removed the "art deco" and stated removing rivets. I would like to remove the tub and the vanity but not exactly what holds all that in place...hopefully I will discover after I get the rivets out.

As always, I'm happy for input/suggestions.

Thanks...Pete

BTW: I hope this is included in my original thread. It would be nice if the site allowed me move/combine threads but don't see anyway to do so.

Great progress . Do you have a gray tank ? If you plan on putting one in , I got mine from INCA also . Might save on shipping . Have fun , a lot of things don’t show up till you get to them . One is that plastic shelf/ wall under the window , you will need to go in the rear access and it is attached through that hole . We will be watching and here for any needed help . Blue

No I don't have a gray tank and don't think I will attempt to put one in since 90% of our camping is at sites with full hookups. If I do camp where there isn't a sewer hookup I'll just take my portable tank with me.

I'm doing a little bit each day and hopefully we can get back to camping soon...this is a bit of a challenge.

Great progress. 😊
I didnt add a gray tank either. But i do have 2 separate dump valves. One gray one black. One on each side of the trailer.
I never was able to find the proper fittings to combine them into one the way it was with the old Thetford valve.
I switched it all to valterra.
Good luck with your project!

mounting plate

I'm ready to order my holding tank and am able to use the original Thetford plumbing tee and evacuation valve. However the mounting plate isn't reusable and I've not able to locate one yet. VTS suggests that a mounting plate like the in the attached picture is needed, but they don't stock that particular one. Anyone have any suggestions as to where I may find one?

Thanks.

Pete

Try PPL . They are a big time supply , and ask for a catalog
,about 1.25” thick . And it’s free . When I was getting ready to buy my new AC they had it on sale for $400 less . They have fast shipping . Blue

Thetford is 3 1/4" diameter, Valterra is the standard 3" diameter. Molded water tanks usually come with a molded 3" discharge port that a 3" ABS pipe will into. A little sealant around the ABS and a hose clamp and you are done. The Valterra blade valves come with either an ID or a OD adaptor. And the Valterra discharge bayonet fitting fits 3" ABS piping and fits all sewer hoses. Thetford requires a reducer. Why mess with it?

I recommend you plan your rebuild using Valterra components. You will be happy. I wonder what JoyFlea did?
