First trip had all new plumbing. Had to drive over a tire skin. It tore off a part of the connection and loosened my plastic pipes for my sewer.Anyone know of a RV place that could fix this in a day or 2 and do it in a way that the plastic is protected. Hate to pay high $ for some one to not fix it right. May there is an AS place Any info. would be appreciatedThanks Judy

Oasis RV in Tucson keeps rising to the top.

Recent discussion on this topic is at What direction are you headed next?

You'll certainly face a variety of wait times before they can do the service. I'd still base my decision on quality and reputation.

Protect the dump pipes? They do have to be down that low to drain your tanks. Not sure what else has been tried. Likewise people have had their wheelwells shredded when they had a trailer tire blowout.

Best wishes and please let us know how it turns out.

Plumbing Shop "might" be able to help

Hi Judy,
Not that this is adding help to your situation... This is PVC plumbing work and a decent plumbing outfit in the area should be able to do what ever you need. You probably can reuse some specific parts, or come up with hardware that can work, now, and you can always take it in to a RV shop if you do not like the repair to get yourself on the road.

I have found myself parked in front of ACE Hardwares in the past to find a cork, or plumbing hardware for roadside repairs in the past, so if I can do it, you should be able to as well.

I'm with Ray i would suggest just getting your problem fixed hopefully by doing the work yourself or call a plumber. that way you can finish your trip and get home safely then have someone you trust fix it.
i would suggest H&K in Columbus KS they have helped me out a lot and are really reasonable on there service rate.
hopefully a member of this forum that is close to were your at, might lend a helping hand??
