Something else I just thought of, Laura June: the water filter under the sink. If the clear plastic filter housing isn't completely tight or if the large rubber O-ring inside is missing, it'll leak under pressure. There should have been a water filter wrench included with your new owner materials. I didn't know what it was until I emailed the dealer to ask what the white plastic bubble blowing ring was for. Naive, I know.

Leak

One must be careful when checking the filter housing is properly tightened. You can actually cause it to leak by over tightening. They usually provide instructions for threading on the filter housing. Usually handtight then a 1/4 more.

So I this same vein (not to detract from the original post). Is there a plate replacement for the domed filter housing? I'd love to regain that space without having to plumb a bypass. I won't put the filter back in as flow was way too severely restricted.

Gary said it wasn't a big deal. He measured and cut a short piece of water pipe, glued two 1/2" couplings to it and gently tightened the couplings to the existing thumb screw thingies that were attached to the filter top using Teflon tape on the threaded ends. He said there was plenty of "give" in the water lines for the modification.

Laurajune, this dish drainer, that is made for RVs, works great for me. It fits very well between the sink and wall in our A126.



This photo shows the little drain hole where the water drips back into the sink:



And it stores for travel nicely under the sink. I have more room under there with the water filter gyzmo eliminated. I am very cautious when it comes to leaks. It looks crowded, but is actually lightly loaded with plastic dishes and cups, etc. The fittings and lines on the lower left have only a few hand towels and wash clothes stored on them. I use pencil baskets to keep spices and other things upright and orderly. Never put heavy objects or pressure on/against any of the fittings or water lines.




Hope this helps,
Deb
