The brass 90 degree fitting
also from the RV store and keeps a short piece of hose from
For looks , I tried to keep the
fitting in the center of the folds of the outside alunimum. Of
course if you are keeping everything original, you might not
want to do this. Just passing along some thoughts.
added by Nancy K., I was going to do this with my '69's rebuild,
but then opted to not put water back into the trailer. I had
purchased a space saving 6 gallon water jug at Walmart to use
for my project. It's turquoise!
Jeff Fisk's solution: Jeff did not want to use the
original water tank as it just looked gross
so he ran water lines to two plastic
jugs under the sink, where the original heater had been. One is
clean water and the one from the drain
is gray water.You can get the containers
the kitchen sink. Area is lined with rubber and there is a drain
in case anything leaks. Gray water jug not shown.
Eric: I tried dreaming up lots of options on my 72
Highlander, I ended up just plumbing it with dual 2" PVC
pipes, so it can hold about 2-3 gallons on the road,
and I picked up a Thetford SmartTote tank to hook up while at the
campgrounds. The clearance under the trailer just seemed too tight
for a tank, and I wasn't about to chance puncturing a shallow one.
from Len: 2" ID pvc will hold .1632
gal per foot. So a 5 gallon capacity would require 30' of pipe)
of the rear valve 1"1/2 connection comes
the sink "gray water" the double run allows
for some temporary
storage while on the road.
bought a large round oil change thingy that fits under the Scotty
we have never used the sink (yet).
bought it at Advanced Auto, on sale. Around $10
or less. It seals and you can pick it up and carry it away. It
is probably 30" in dia. and 4" deep, so it holds
quite a lot. It also has
a pour cap.
