Could you please tell me how much they charged for labor, or how many hours they took? I'm trying to decide whether to have my local guy install a retro fit from Shoreline. (I'm presuming your part number was CRRK-01). The Airstream advisor says that a total replacement is cheaper, because of labor; I'm not ready to accept that.

Update on our situation: we removed the plastic hose guides at the opening to the reel compartment (as others suggested) and are able to manually deploy and store the hose on the reel. Not a great permanent solution, but at least we can dump OK.

I would, but I don't remember and I don't have the paperwork handy. I'm sure it was at least 2-3 hours of labor.

Final results: I ordered the kit (circa $65) from Boat & RV Accessories .

Local shop installed it for 4.2 hours of labor. All in all, probably saved a little relative to a complete replacement by Airstream. Hopefully the quality of the retro kit is better.

Not a fun job

Flushed the tanks thoroughly and put in the new clutch kit. Not easy to get to without a lift. Once you get it out and on a bench the clutch install and directions are easy. Some pictures with notes
