  • Shark Bite Fittings for RV Plumbing Repairs?
    I used the braided tubing with a shut off connector when I installed a new toilet. It's been several months without issues, and the shut off valve has proven helpful. Word of caution: I apparently didn't initially have it fully seated and had a pretty good leak, but pressing it further onto the pex pipe stopped it.

    Seems like a prudent action, especially on the island. My wife has what I believe is a similar condition to Anne's, so we're happy to hunker down for awhile. Currently on day 3 of what is actually a 17 day period. Safe travels!

    Is the 14 day self isolation required by the government, Ray? Due to coming in from the States?
  • Boon Docking Water Well
    Good tip, thanks. When I was a kid in the '60's we used to run around with pots on our head collecting hail during storms. In those days all we had were ice chests so it helped with the coolers.
  • Help me find a leak?
    Thanks for that. I think that may be the exact problem on mine. I'll need to pull that channel trim and hit those screws as you did. Need to work on it when the weather breaks again. I like Ray's eternabond solution, at least for the top seam.
  • Help me find a leak?
    OP here. Just to circle back to provide an update: on further exploration, I now believe I'm dealing with an exterior leak somewhere around the cap. I've identified a couple of spaces where the original caulking may not have been applied evenly and might be a place for water intrusion. Looks like a full recaulking around the cap is in order. Seems like the simplest explanation and hopefully the correct one. We'll see. Thanks for your attention!
