Sewer hanger on 2109S
Two days ago, we were 1500 miles from home and just outside Kamloops, BC, when I dumped my holding tanks at a campground. I found the sewer-line hanger broken on my 15-month old 2012 2109S (warranty ran out April 1, of course). The hanger is just a steel strap attached from a bracket on the 2" gray water pipe to a metal screw in the frame. It had broken at a bend in the strap near the bracket.
I temporarily held the PVC pipes up with a bungee cord and headed for the Home Depot in Kamloops. I bought a 10 ft roll of perforated steel strap (home pipe hanger) for a little over $4 Canadian. In order to provide a backup, I cut two pieces of steel strap the right length, unscrewed the old strap, and replaced it with the two new straps, back to back. And I now have another 7 ft of new strap as a backup for a future break on our way to Alaska and back over much rougher roads than those we have encountered so far.
So, while you are inspecting the brackets on your fresh water tank (see another thread), check your sewer line hanger as well. A little problem solved quickly and easily (in the Home Depot parking lot) that could have become a huge problem if it had happened in the middle of nowhere on the Alaska Highway and caused those PVC sewer pipes to break off from the bouncing of the trailer.
