2016 283rks waste system change

I am in the process of changing the waste pipe to include the galley waste line as well so I don't have to crawl under the slide to drain the galley tank.

I'll be able to drain all three tanks in one location.

I couldn't find anywhere on here that a DIY was documented.

I think Old Coot did a similar mod on his 8528rkws. There were photos of it on here at some point in the past. Please post photos of your mod so others can see and benefit!

Good luck

Sounds like a great plan.But be mind full of the tires.It's not if,it's when a tire blows,you could loose the piping.

Hmmm. Never thought about a blowout tearing out the pipe. I guess it would only be grey water... but still.

Got it done and it works great.
The galley drain was on a 90 sweep and I was able to loosen it on the tank and turn it around and point it to the other valves.
Had to replace the 3 inch valve slip side.
Had to replace both 1 1/2 valves because they were glued directly into the valve slip joints.

From the galley line I ran the pipe inside of the tires over the axles with ample room.

I'll add some pictures tomorrow of the finished product.

Mine has a electric heat tape wrapped around the galley pipe before the valve installed at the factory. Did yours? Did you just cut and terminate the wires and tuck them up above the chloroplast?

Really looking forward to the photos.

I have been thinking about the reason the factory doesn't connect the 2 grey tanks. It is probably because the line that would go between the 2 would be hard to keep from freezing. Probably would minimally add to the cost of the build and we all know how they can be about that.

Still looking forward to the photos.
