pulled a lot of trailers at work years ago
have never seen that
wax paper THING used
sounds like a good idea

since I'am the grease man around here
sounds like if I (we) use heavy duty wax paper
that would be a job for the wife
she has more experience with that stuff

my retirement life is getting easier !!!

thanks
Mountainman

Everyone use to laugh when I said I liked to grease my balls.
So now I waxpaper them.

One of my low point drains is leaking on my Rockwood. The leak is coming from above the cap; between the plastic pipe and the fitting. How do I fix this?

Check to be sure the pipe isn't cracked

like Jim stated
check for possible cracks
if none
remove fitting
apply two or three wraps teflon-tape
re-insert

Biggy, you only need to drain it if it will freeze. I only drain mine in the winter months when I'm concerned about freezing temps.

I bought a use SV-291 this past year. It had a leak one of the low point drains. Mine had a gasket on the one that did not leak. Went to HD to get a replacement gasket to fit it.....NOTHING. Guy in the plumbing dept. said he had not seen a gasket like that sold seperate. It was only sold in a pack with about 10 other mixed gaskets that I figure I would never use. I just through in an o-ring and tightend it down. I like the pex valve idea!

Jim,

this is EXACTLY what we want to do to our trailer! Mainly for the fresh water tank.

How difficult was this project? How long did it take you to do it? i think ALL trailer should come with this feature.
