It appears to be all said & done.

Hi Pam,

So what do you think? Was it worth it? Are you happy with the finished product?

Tom

Nice results! Y'know, grey tanks of this vintage just weren't that large. The usual first overflow is observed coming up the shower drain. Are you observing it elsewhere?

Would a blue tote and a sewer cap like this or this help you extend your gray capacity?

Tom, I am very happy... the final cost... around $3000 and that includes the tear out, all materials including hardware, pull out pantry ($500!), sink, faucet, and of course all of the labor. I am new to remodeling (anything) so had to learn how much things cost... even the little things like full extension drawer pulls are expensive.... But it is just what I had in mind... and even better in 'real life'!!!

Mello mike, I am not in a hurry to do the bed area... which is a double. I think it looks better with the new maple then I thought it would. I do need a new mattress and will eventually want to redo it ... given enough time and money... Maybe some paint until then. Not sure. Because then it would be on to the bathroom! I can see why people just tear everything out and start fresh. It would have been nice to redo all of the plumbing, but I don't live that kind of life. Meaning I can't do it myself and can't afford to pay, so I will do what I can as I can afford it and have someone I trust to do it. My friend who did the kitchen says 'never again with the curved walls!', but he is forgetful....

Yeah, I was just anxious to take my first shower in the trailer and was worried if there was enough hot water... forgot about the holding tanks, except to be very consevative... GI style. I think the tank was probably almost full when I started. The capacity is 13 gallons and I emptied almost 15 out when I noticed the leaking under the trailer.

How would these caps help? Are they so you can run a hose into a free standing holding tank?

Thanks, Pam

Right. You'd leave the grey wastegate open and attach a short length of garden hose from the cap running into a blue tote. Most campsites prohibit dumping grey water on the ground but individual practices vary widely (eg, trickling out commonly done in the quiet of night... ). A partly full blue tote is much easier to horse up into a TV to take away to dump.

I can only imagine the tank capacity problems if the grandkids are using too.

Most Airstreams use Thetford fittings like this one. The others look the same, but they are a slightly different size.

Just wanted to say how beautiful your cabinets are. Great job, and looks like it was well worth the cost.
