Todays “shi$$y” job...
New cabinets are stuck in New Orleans, Quartz Countertop Fabricator has closed for the crisis..
So let’s tackle the “shi$$y” job...replace the Thetford Valves, Adapters and find the Gray Tank Leak...
Black Tank Adapter cracked and leaking
Remove 4 Rusted Screws from each Thetford Valve
Wiggle the double sanitary T and work the valves out (had to use pliers to yank out the seals to give a little more wiggle room).
To drop the Gray Tank...
Loosen & Remove the hose clamp around the drain flange
Loosen the hose clamp at the top of the tank for the shower drain pipe
Loosen the hose clamp for tank vent
Remove the 4 (1/2 “ ) nuts & washers supporting the right side of the tank
Drill out 12 each, 3:16” rivets & 2 each, 1:8” rivets securing the lower curved panel
Gently pull the panel outward to provide access to the 4 (1/2” nuts & washers) on the left side of the tank.
Disconnect the tank monitoring g sensor wiring at the harness in the kitchen.
Gently work the tank out
