Access to sink waste pipe

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

The wife has decided to go mad and clean our new to us caravan, she unscrewed the sink drainer (thought it smelled)  and now the waste pipe has fallen down.

So do I pull out the fridge to get to the pipe or remove the seating from the side and remove the panel.

If it is the fridge, assume there are some retaining clips?

Caravan is a Sterling Europa 500

 

Thank you

If you remove the fridge you will probably need to disconnect its gas supply as well.  Also, the space behind the fridge should be sealed from the interior of the caravan to avoid draughts and fumes.

 

Is it possible to pull the drain pipe back into position using a stiff wire through the sink hole and reconnect it that way?  It would be a lot less complicated.

Can you get access by removing the fridge vents? On our Bailey the sink is above the fridge and I managed to change the tap this way. The vents usually just unclip.

Tried this without luck, but watched a video on utube and removed the sink - all ok now
