Grey water pipe replace

I have a 2012 Windjammer 3008W. I have freeze damage to my rear grey water drain. I need to replace some parts.

The 1 1/2" valve is still good, but the piece that bolts on to the valve is cracked and the elbow is also.

Can anyone recommend replacement parts using a local hardware store or a discount part dealer?
What is the grade of plastic being used ? Obviously not schedule 40.

I am trying to do this myself. At $120.00 an hour labor, it has already cost me plenty just to get the camper usable. ( See Camco Antifreeze Problem).

I went to CW but I did not see the part that goes from valve to pipe or any pipe available. They were too busy to help me.

Thanks.

Bobo

cut out the offending parts & Find a. Hardware store. Camper is ABS but is interchangeable with sched 40PVC
Look over the "fernco fittings " and get a bottle of glue . Have fun till it stops leaking!

Grn Mtns,

Thank you.

Got what I needed at HD. Went back to CW and found the valve flange I needed. Found it in the fresh water aisle. Stupid me only looked in the sewage aisle.

Awesome ! How is the windjammer 3008 treating you? Our 3025 has been great so far. We may be part of the awning motor recall but otherwise no problems.
Best,
Jon

To be honest, I found that our Sunline we traded in was better quality. Besides the freeze damage from this past winter, I have replaced the spotlights in the bedroom because when you replace the bulb, the socket pushes in causing a short. The small round lights in the bath, I had to pull the whole unit out just to change a bulb. 2 rivets went on our front step. Under warranty, I had the roof replaced on the bed slide due to faulty glue on the rubber membrane. I had replaced a 110v outlet that came broken. Another one just cracked.

Just waiting for what's next. We love the layout. It solved the room size problem we had with the Sunline. Shame they went out of business. I would of bought another one in a heartbeat.

Enjoy your unit. Ours is our Happy Place.
