Help needed with plumbing repairs.

I am in need of someone to replace my old plumbing to pex. I have a 65 Globetrotter, and it needs some work! Is there anyone in the Castle Rock, Franktown, or Elizabeth area willing to work on it for me?! Let me know what you think it will cost as well. There are a few other things that need work as well. Please Help!

Howdy and to! You have the right place to get help with any and all questions about your new-to-you Airstream.

Just curious about what went wrong that means you need to change out all your plumbing? Are there multiple leaks, perhaps meaning that the previous owner (PO) didn't winterize?

While putting in PEX is a great idea, sometimes, it is much simpler to repair a single leak and live with the copper for a while. It always seems that there is so much to do on a trailer you just got, doesn't it?

When you get a moment, perhaps you would post a few photos of your TT (travel trailer)? We looove photos.

Yes. The PO did not winterize and there are several leaks. I've been told that instead of chasing all the leaks, to go ahead and put in new. Of course when I had it sent to me I was told that it was all in working order...oh well, live and learn.

Luke's Maintenance & Repair Company

though not quite as local as you have asked for, I can highly recommend a fellow in Fort Collins. his name is Luke and you can find him by Googling "Luke's Maintenance & Repair Company"

I second that Luke recommendation.
