Opened area under kitchen sink & glad i did
I would appreciate so assistance in locating a part to protect tubing and electrical wiring that is installed thru the TT floor. I appears that on the lower price point TT Forest River just opens a hole in the floor and stuffs the tubes thru & then throws some foam at the hole. See pix 2 & 3 to see what part Im looking for.
I opened up the area underneath the kitchen sink in our 2018 Wildwood for the following reasons;
A/ Fresh water tank would not fill from outside filler entry, as I listed on my May 2 post.
B/ The counter extender shelf was not stable and had to correct the factory's poor installation, so it could support some weight when used.
C/ Cabinet storage under the sink consisted of ONE shelf that was partly blocked by the sink P-trap.
D/ Using the space next to the water pump on the end of the cabinet for a cubby for shoes (away from the front of the door) by relocating a heater vent outlet.
I have attached photos to show what I found when I opened up
1/ The Fresh water tank vent (black tube in PIX) was crushed not in the tank. It was frozen in place by a dab of foam, Need the thru the floor gasket to fix the opening so bugs & stuff will not come in.
2/ The backboard intended to support the counter extension was only stapled on one end, and therefore the screws to the extension were only into the 1/8" panel board.
3/ The area under the sink had ALL the trailer construction debris; sawdust, broke would slats, etc. See the pix. This debris would make its way into the drawers, and other things.
4/ The P trap for the double sink was placed blocking the only shelf partial useable under the sink. I found a device called a "WATERLESS HEPVO 1-1/2" TRAP" that will replace the huge P trap & the required vent.
5/ Finally, the water pump was just sitting on a piece of rubber material, not fastened down except thru the ridge pipes connecting it to the water system. No wonder it made so much noise.
I say all this to suggest that you pull drawers out and open cabinet doors wide in your TT, to correct the many things the factory's QA did not see or look for.
Help with the part at the first paragraph of the note would be appreciated, so I can properly close up the kitchen
Thanks in advance for any ones assistance.
