Gutting, need help w plumbing diagram

Hi all! Just took a leap into the airstream world and got a 1975 international 31'. I am gutting the interior (already did) to use as a storefront for my business however would like to keep the toilet in there ... for a few obvious reasons

Does anyone have a diagram that shows me which plumbing lines I don't need? And where/which tanks I need

I noticed the toilet is hooked up to the water heater but I want to remove that since we don't have the shower or kitchen sink in. Not sure where the water supply is from...

Please excuse my lack if knowledge... My airstream is older than me.

Thanks!

(I'll post some close ups today)

The toilet sits right on top of the tank you will need to keep.

Atraveler- No diagram yet...I ordered my manual online but it wont be here for 10 days and I need to get moving on my project

Clancy- Thanks for the response...I can take the water heater out then.

I've attached a few pictures and have a few more questions

1. Have any idea what this thing to the left of the toilet?

2. What is this drain pipe for that went through the closet on the toilet side of the bathroom... do i need it if Im just keeping a toilet in the trailer?

3. And what pipes do I need to keep in tact where the furnace to make sure the toilet works.... There alot going on down there and am afraid to take anything out we may need. We plan on removing the gas lines since we wont be keeping out furnace.
I believe the clean water tank is under there since there a fill-up outside the trailer so we will want to keep that


Thanks for your help!

The piece to the left of the toilet is a pressure regulator between your city water hook-up and the airstream plumbing. The vertical black pipes which go through the roof are vents. One for the toilet black water tank and one for the grey water tank. You need to keep the vent operable if you keep the toilet. Looks like fun. Jeff

Are you going to have pressurized water supplied to your airstream?

I might suggest a lavatory with hot and cold water since you are going to have a toilet. I guess you don't need hot water, but since you have a water heater, why not use it?

Do you know if your plumbing leaks? If it does most folks replace the copper with Pex piping.

If I don't need it for the toilet I won't have pressurized water.

The purpose of my renovation is to have as much space as possible- if I can fit one more item to sell for my business - I would rather do that than keep the water heater and add a sink ( as you can see I tore the old one out)

I haven't discovered any plumbing leaks....yet

I'm sad tearing this stuff out but I have a end goal in sight - my next airstream will be decked out for traveling


Thanks for everyone's help!

I need a water heater if you decide to get rid of it and it works

It's not quite rocket science. From the fresh water tank you will find 3 valves. 2 are drain valves and one is the water supply to the water pump. From the water pump outlet just follow the lines. Also follow the lines from the city water pressure regulator. At some point they will intersect with the lines from the water pump.
